Is it my imagination or am I seeing more really nice 'hot' Fords on the road (SA- The Holden State!!). When I had my modified AU XR8, I always felt like I was a minority in a sea of HSV look-a-likes with the exception of a few stock XR6's going around.
Since the BA has been launched I've notice alot more AU's models of all kinds with mags, body kits etc plus alot of earlier EB's up to EL's done up. Everything from big Ford logo stickers on back windows etc..
Have we all come out of hiding?? Seems like we got some new direction to be proud of.
I was thinking the same thing a few weeks ago - it is noticable that ppl aren't scared to be seen driving their Fords now.
Some of the young guys around my way are buying E series and AUs 'cos they are cheaper 2nd hand than those other things - and are then pleasantly surprised how good the Fords actually are on our rough country roads which knock the crap outa the front ends of Dunnydores.
