I think Ford are lying to me

This is not my car , because the last time I looked , my bonnet has a lump in it . The registration info I also got from Myford.com.au is wrong .
This is rigged and all a big con. I think I should be compensated with a few extra horsepower for pain and suffering .

Hahaha, your car must have had a bonnet transplant somehwhere along the way, or maybe ford just has a set of photos of the same actual car and stuff up on yours.

I used the VIN number which is on the rego sticker .
Can't see how they could have used an XR6 bonnet , unless they chopped a hole in it. I have been stooged .

Well as you can see the bonnet is still not closed, what they actually do after this shot, is jump up and down on top to close it.

Theres ya bulge!
