biggrin I Drove One At Last :)))))))))))))))))))

Ha ha My regional manager came in to work today (REPCO) and I asked if he would if I took his Blue Pearl Fairmont 182 for a skid. To my surprise he threw the keys over and said have fun!!

MY GOD If i has closed my eyes for a split second I would have thought I was driving a late model 5 series BMW. IT was that good

I was shaking when I hit the unlock button on the keypad and the guy in the car that it was parked next to looked at me strangely when I wispered to myself "OK Unca Geoff lets see what you have done" :))))
Its the most intoxicating twin cam 6 I have ever heard beyond 3 grand and it was so willing to rev! Only 3 complaints....
1 : steering wheel too small which obsures the gauges
2 : Handbrake lever is shocking a design disaster
3 : Brake pedal too big go pedal too small big feet tend to get caught under the brake pedal!
How did Ford Australia manage to get so much emotion into these cars I AM IN LOVE:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
