They are also a great car to drive, even with 200kw, so when the 260kw version comes out it should be absolutely awesome. That old woman probably has no idea what she was driving and what it is capable of, but then again it could have been Craig Lowndes's granny. You can have alook at mine in the Showroom under "My Fun Mobile"

When you say OLD how old do you mean?

Howdy Ian

I forgot it was up your way, I was going to Target at Prospect I think it was. Old is about late 40's early 50's at a quick look.

The T series was red and boy did it look good.

Well i'm starting to see a trend here, it seems the T Series Falcons haven't been marketed right. I've seen Holden guys lookign at TSeries falcons and liking it heaps. Even some ford guys don't know what a TSeries Falcon is. Ford Australia should market teh T Series Falcons like the XR8, to make it well known. Sure it's aimed at a different makret and quite frankly i like it that way, but if TE-50, can be hollowed in peoples midns like ClubSport i'm sure Ford will gain sales from the daily falcons.

Just my comment..
