Give it time mievil. This is a new area and people will take a little time to find / use it.

I always liked big blocks,especially when i saw a mates 460 powered mk2 cortina 2 door....theres a lot of cars faster,but the feeling of being in it under acceroration was incredible....
I dont think theres alot of big block fords in aus,but would be nice for this forum to take off...Hmmm, an xa gs sedan with a 429cj,4spd all standard looking would suit me just fine!!!


cheers phil.

mmmm BBF... wonderful things they are...

They give you this idea that you can drive OVER the car in front rather than around it, which at low speed is crap because you cant get the traction :)

Seriously, a very mild 460 (even though they cost a fortune to run on juice) is a sweet thing and a warmed over one on LPG is nice too just a little more of a car shaker...
