Then you will like this one, it's called the T-series:



It currently has 220kw (295hp) 5L Windsor V8, but in the next day or two it will hopefully be announce by Ford that it will get a stroked V8 with something like 255kw (342hp).

see http://www.fte.ford.com.au/ or http://www.ford.com.au/ for more info.

Dang, that is a GREAT looking car, and if they produced it here with
a 295hp Windsor it would sell out immediately...

That is a good looking sedan. Ford Fairmont, Ford doesn't make them for the US anymore. Maybe its just me but, it looks a little like the new Taurus.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
