Firefox's EF Super...clear up some facts
I need to clarify some important issue's raised by another forum member that sought of attacked my cars look or should I say it's badging under the post : Ok...You Have been waiting for this...Movie of car EF Super car....
The vechile in question in the video is a 1996 Series II Fairmont Ghia V8 in Heritage Green as most of you already know and have never hidden this fact from the day I bought it....The car was originally done up as a EL GT Replica.....but the car was sought of half finished. The Gt Interior..dash....Gt Momo steering wheel and timber paneling was completed along with the badging and most of the exterior was complete apart from the side skirts, wheel flairs and front bar. Half way into the project the engine and suspension was the main focus and it does sport original EL GT suspension, But the main focus was the V8 powerplant and as you could see from the video it is a very quick little 5 litre for a car of that weight. Bear in mind it is also using the standard torque converter so it is technically a lot slower than it should be....mainly because a 2500 rpm converter was not a suitable option driving to and from work in sydney peak hour traffic due to overheating problems ( was advice given from a transmission expert).
As far as i'm concerned alot of guys run around with replica's be it xw,xy,xa,xb,eb......i see them all the time at shows and club runs....and they all sport a GT Badge.....I bought the car this way and it will remain this way..... If the car wasn't worthy I would have removed it.
End of Story.
