I have been looking at these Forums for about a month now and have at last registered as a user. I have seen a few references (all positive of course!) to Kiwi Ford fans but would like to know if we have anybody registered from NZ.

Any Kiwis living in Oz and feel homesick? - send a note and I will tell you what is happening to Ford in NZ.

I live in 'Vim Valley' just off the Pakuranga highway - but obviously work at 90 Plunket Ave, Wiri. How many other Kiwis do you reckon are registered?

Driving a TS50 at the moment. By the time I get to work I have a big smile on my face! - An even bigger smile is driving from SH1 to SH27 via the Ohinewai rd just before Huntly, in 3rd gear...

Welcome aboard Kiwiford,

I'm a kiwi and live in the Manawatu region.
I love the twisty roads down here - it really suites the XR8 though I would love to get my hands on a Mondeo ST (called Zetec-S in Europe - if correct) and put it through its paces around here.

One of my big interests is car design and at the moment I am putting together a portfolio to send over to Ford Australia.
But again - welcome. :thumbup:

Is it a series 2 or 1?

yeah know peel forest as well, walked from there all the way to the community hall, actually we ran, army exercise, that is one hell of road to run when its wet. I remember a house caught fire and because there is no fire brigade in peel forest this young girl had to run back down the road to contact the brigade, when they got back to the house it was destoyed, and I think from memory her mother perished.

Well, I wasn't born in NZ but lived there for 5 years. Spent most of my time in Palmerston North and Dunedin. Hey, if you're ever in the FoMoCo office in Melbourne, Oz, you'll notice my desk is the one with the All Blacks mug on it! :D That's gotta count for something right?! ;)

Ah someone that has actually stayed in the manawatu - Ashhurst is the closest I've got to living in Palmy.

And yes you will be excused for having a All Blacks cup.:D
