Bathurst 24Hour and the 427 "Monaro"

Please stop me if I am wrong, but I thought this 7.0 litre Truck engine belonged in a Corvette C5R?

What justification is there that a Moron... sorry, a "Monaro" is allowed to compete with a LeMans/Nascar engine and the ****ing thing isn't even a production car?

Strange how EVERY single "Real" production Monaro can't take out a Lamborghini or Ferrari.

Does GM provide the payroll for this bloody thing or what? If they want to race a 427, put the goddamned Corvette C5R in there for chrissake!

They'd be crying bloody murder if we used a Ford GT90 engine in a Zetec Focus after a set of false advertising and expectations!

Cheers.

Well it's a cv8, and I've never seen a cv8 with a 427 engine. Ever.

Leaves me wondering, why ford don't use an indy car o get a jag F1 car and blast that around the 24hr.

Bastard!!

Holden have done everything within the rules and marketed it to perfection. The only disappointment should be that Ford Oz hasn't replied in kind.

No more than they would be if Ford wanted a shot.

Its just they are either lazy or gutless.

Take that coupe they designed not long ago. What ever happened to that? Great car, but no drive from the bosses.

Damm

If I can get ford FPV to pay for a decent tranny and Diff I will put my car up against it

Im sure it will send it back to the black hole where it should have stayed after all the hype about nothing
