Thanks for the kind remarks. Sorry about posting the photo's that way I have been having trouble getting them onto boards.

I am right handed and no it is second nature to us. In fact it is widely believed that the strongest arm be the car control arm during gear changes. I don't think it makes much difference but we don't have a choice.

If you guys want I have more pictures that you might like especially if you are into ute's.

... and here's the preceeding model (Dec-97 build)...


Aah, there's my baby! :) I reckon these would sell pretty well over there.. let's see.. going on current exchange rate, the blue AU above would go for about $26,000US!!!! Eek! I'm surprised nobody has started importing and converting them... would make for a very sweet and very unique ride over there, not to mention all the good aftermarket bits for the Windsor to get bulk hp!
