Just drove this Baby

just had the pleasure of driving this. 7.3lt turbo, must say it went better than I expected, infact I reckon it would give the old EA Ghia more than a run for it's money. Great fun, Made my day really:s6:

I am not sure if it's one of the new ones, it was imported and cut up before Ford brought them back. The guy that owns it is a crazy man, buy's brand new car's and takes them straight in to have blowers fitted, HSV's, Tickfords, Landcruisers even a Harley. He also own a Chev Ute and says the Ford pisses all over the chev as far as grunt goes.
