The Shaker's Back.

I posted a thread a bit ago about the Shaker I saw on a BA at New Oak Ford. I was asked to take photos. It's the meanest looking animal on the road. A rival to the GT in my mind. In the flesh, it was amazing. They said it would be at the Ford Holden show on the weekend. It's called a H.O. BA Interceptor. I'm a HUGE fan. I didn't ask about the grunt though. But if it's as fast as it looks, who cares.

Apparently New Oak Ford have the car. Gruppe a is the same company as H.O. (Homologated Options). I was told that Wayne Draper owns H.O. who designed the early GT's. Sounds interesting. I remember a edition of Wheels that had that guy, designing the XD and EA.

Re: The Shaker's Back.

That slightly different body kit + bonnet 'enhancement' should definitely be an option on the GT models.

Not so keen on the bonnet, but the rear spoiler is an improvement over the standard one!

Re: The Shaker's Back.

As Ford Fanatic said , that doesn't come close to looking like , or even resembling a shaker.
The inventor of that should be kicked in the head.
What a pox looking piece of shit .

Re: The Shaker's Back.

Sorry I don't like any of it...I prefer the clean lines of the BA not something like that....even the wing is too big...

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
