MotorEx2004

Just a coupla pics from Motorex2004 at Homebush this weekend. It saw the unveiling of Gary Myers all new twin supercharged mustang(1 or 8 never before seen cars that'll be touring Oz this year) The Torana powerplant is quite interesting twin turbo's feeding a supercharger. There is your usual fare of rods, some quite unbelievably in the workmanship. There's ove 1000 cars on display including a number I haven't seen around on show.
Anyways enjoy the pics.

Pity it's a HEMI in it. Blasphemous having such a nice stang and not having a Ford motor in it!!

The XY is gorgeous tho.

Re: MotorEx2004

In case people are wondering how Ferrari could make such a but ugly car - they didn't. It's actually an old kitcar based upon an old torana chassis.

You may like to take a closer look at the engine layout in that XY.

Rather well executed low profile supercharger installation.

The red XYGT - not the xw pano........

Big_Pete - may I suggest you check your settings under userCP, Edit options to ensure you have "show pictures" enabled. They are all attatched in the thread itself, so if your settings are right & you're logged in you should be able to see them.

If people are interested I may start another thread with pics of Gary Myers "Silver Bullet"
