Anyone know the owner of this BA XR6 Turbo??

Hey there is a picture that is floating around the holden forums which apparantly shows a disgruntled Ford owner with a sticker on the back window. My friend swears that people on that particular holden website have seen it driving around, yet to me the photo looks like a poor photoshop hack job. The entire picture is dull except for the writing(funny that) and the writing seems to be bright white, while the line on the road and the rest of the background whites are dull(funny that as well). License Plate is: "Track1"

This is the picture in question:

Anyone know who owns this car? Can they verify this picture or is it bullshit photoshop job with lying commodore owners trying to back it up? Cheers

its possible its true after all some cars are bloody lemons, a friend had so much trouble with his bent8 commodore that he parked it outside a holden dealer with signs on it, ended up in court but he was allowed to leave the signs because it was true

I saw an article on Today Tonight or one of those shows about a guy who did the same on his black SS ute, Brand new and over 48 faults. He signed the sides, back and top of windscreen. One way to get the dealer to stop dickin you around I suppose?

I rekon its a photoshop job because there seems to be too much curve on the lines of writing

i think it might b a p/shop job coz if u look at the space between the writing and top and bottom edges the space length is different...it looks lik the writing is on a slant going down towards the passenger side...but mayb my eyes r playin up lol

ok guys, you can stop wondering... .here is a quote from track on a different forum.

"I visited a signwriter today. Enough is enough. I feel it's time to share the joy with the rest of the very impressionable public. (Will post pictures when complete). It probably won't do any good, but it will make me feel better, and certainly give the guys at the dealership something to talk about when it goes back!"

it aint a photochop guys!!!!
