Yeh there was one TE at powercruise, a silver one with gold B45's, 6cyl manual. I felt like going home and getting mine, but didnt really have $200 to spare, plus its in the paper this week.

Re: Lack of TE's at Easternats

haha my mate had his TE there at Easternats. It was the one that was frog green and the plates were SIKST6 (borrowed from another mates VL Turbo). Anyway he had problems with it all weekend, kept blowing bottom and top hoses finally got that fixed and he fried the clutch. Poped one set of tyres thou.

Im sure it was dissapointing for you, but in a way I think its a good thing. It means that our cortinas wont get played out like the toranas and vl turbos. When you bring you car to a show people wont be "oh just another te" they'll be "wow look at that, thats a te cortina" SICK!
