Perth Motorshow

Hey

Just been at the perth motorshow all afternoon. saw all the new FPV's for the first time and gotta say there an awesome looking beast. especialy inside the cabin and that engine is bloody massive :)

sorry i forgot to take a camera and didnt get any pics.
The territory is also pretty nice

And Glenn Seton made a special apperance and i got some autorgraphs with him. He also said he will have his BA Falcon for the Waneroo Round (VB 300).

Anyone else go?

Just thought id let yas all know

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

was the Austin Martin at the show?

going this weekend. can't wait to see the FPV stand.
hoping the territory looks better in the flesh than those photos. looks too soft, like a kia or something. The R7 was much nicer. what ever happened to the R5. that was one nice ute, even holden copied it with the cross8 (what a bloody rip off)

How much are the tickets guys and when does this sideshow leave town because I'm pretty busy with uni work at the moment...and there is a surf comp on the weekend so I dunno if I can go.

If I do go I'll be sure to wear two pairs of boxers for the FPV stand

Just went down to the show. Spent about an hour around the Ford/FPV stand looking around and talking to a dealer friend of mine and about 5 minutes was spent elsewhere.
I took pics but they are pretty sad considering i went to the melbourne motorshow and saw the exact same cars and used 2 rolls of film.
