Hi from a newby

I just posted this in the welcome section, and was advised to post here..........

Where has this site been all my life??

Just found this site the other day. Love it.
I thought there would be somehting like trhis on the net, and boy, I am glad I found it.

So, I live in Sydney, and drive an old XF. I would love to buy a newer Ford, but the insurance is just so bloody high.

I used to drive an XD Fairmont Ghia, 351, C10 on Gas, but it developed a little to much cancer, so it has been retired into the shed to be fixed when I have a little more money behind me.

My speed fix is mt 2002 KTM 520. 55hp with 112kgs. Work out the power to weight ratio.

So, this is me. And my name is not Ken. Wanna know where that came from?

Put Far in front of my name.

I look forward to contributing in the future.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I only have internet at work, so I look at it any chance i think I can, without getting busted.

As I cannot afford a newer Ford (insurance), I am thinking of buying a written off XH ute, and transferring over the running gear etc.

Until then, the mighty 250 xflow powers me around.

(Actually read about the guy with the HSV R8, with all the oil problems. My car has 280,000 ks on it, and doesn't use that much oil.)

Oh yeah, I'm 24.
