Out-of-the-ordinary ford sightings

over the last few days i have seen an ebgt (if not, a very good replica), a very nice looking el gt with number plates 'SEEYAH' three times driving around my area, and on the way home today an f250 with plates 'BEN HUR' and the back was about as wide as the lane, with the huge flared guards and dual tyres. when i worked up enough courage to pass it it felt like my car was vibrating from the low rumble eminating from the f250, that thing was a beast. has anyone else seen some different stuff like this during your daily driving?

Re: Out-of-the-ordinary ford sightings

it wasnt a ford, but it was this lemans type racer thingy, ive seen it a few times around town.

i always see a nice Shelby Cobra replica, and GT40 replica driving around.

Re: Out-of-the-ordinary ford sightings

Just caught a Murcielago today. Damn they just look so insane they should be able to drive at least 100kmh quicker than the rest of traffic.

Also an EL GT around my area, a Dodge Charger (V8) and a Diablo not long ago.

ill try to get those pics up fo the Murci

they'd look pretty sweet indeed, theres a murcielago that drives around surfers paradise that belongs to a loan shark, its yellow (very original lamborghini colour, lol) and he has black and white plates that are just 'SHARK'

Yup.

There is a EB GT near here, sadly it doesn't look as though it's being well looked after.

I've seen that f250, and I agree, that thing is a BEAST!

yeah that reminds me that i haven't seen any 2 door XE ESPs around for about 5 years, i assume they were made from an american mustang also seen a convertable of same design
only interesting thing i've seen lately is a gemini with 2 supertrap mufflers hanging out back(coup) a VH valiant charger ,VG valiant coup and a 71 dodge phoenix
good weather now so a few garage doors will be getting used i imagine

A Sierra RS500 road car with an ex-DJR engine. Something like 450-500hp street tune, over 600 with the wick turned up.

Re: Out-of-the-ordinary ford sightings

The Guy over the road used to own a very late model Lamborghini Diabolo 4wd which was pretty sweet, I don't know what the hell happened to it. Another guy down the street owns a shitbag Leyland P76 which u dont see to many around. The guy next dorr owns one of those classic old Ferrari 348 (or 308) GTS that he never drives, and a coulpe of months ago, I saw one of those BMW/Bentley Cars that were designed to compete with the Maybach. That was probably the rarest thing i've seen on the road.

Oh, I also have seen A Murcielago, but it was on the back of a truck. Maybe it blew a headgasket, I dont know.
