Two SC 61's = trouble
Though he sponsers the G.M product.Bloody good to see an Ausy guy doing well. Was he excited??? YES.Good on him..
I hear you Jem. Not good at all. Wonder what the excuse will be this timeJEM said:
It also goes to show you that you don't need to be regarded as one of the best teams/drivers to mix it with the front guys, all the more reason for me to be pissed off with FTR at the moment.:cussing:
The bastard near had a heart attack!!.. Good to see him enjoying himself..ebxr8240 said:Was he excited??? YES.Good on him..
Couldn't agree more Ian. FTR is the link to FTE just as HRT is the link to HSV. While it's good to have Fords winning and doing well, it's a must to have FTR at the front of the grid. This sends a message that the FTE cars are made of the right stuff.HSE2 said:if you are going to put Tickford on a car then it really need to be the best Ford out there. But that is just my opinion.
I would have to agree. Perfect timing for Big kev as his cleaning products company is going public on the stock exchange. I wonder if the ASX will give him a stop go penalty for colluding to inflate his stock prices by winning on Sunday. I still haven't forgiven Big kev racing for punting a Falcon out of Bathurst last year.ebxr8240 said:Though he sponsers the G.M product.Bloody good to see an Ausy guy doing well. Was he excited???

IT'S HOTTER AT CALDER
Herald Sun 16-07-2001
FOOTBALL is Victoria's passion, but there was another tribal fight to warm the winter weather yesterday. It was Ford versus Holden at Calder Park, with rival supporters just as passionate as a capacity MCG crowd.
Ford's favourite was Craig Lowndes, even though he was back in the pack for most of the day, while Mark Skaife was Holden's hero in the car carrying the coveted number one.
"They just love him. It's like this all day," said Ford's president, Geoff Polites, as he watched the Ford hordes surging around Lowndes' garage.
"It is so good to see this passion. This is what motoring is so much about in Australia," said Holden's chairman, Peter Hanenberger.
The Ford fans wore blue and black, in sharp contrast to the racing red of Holden's backers, on a day with plenty of parallels to a footy fight.
The record Calder Park crowd of 26,500 people chanted, cheered, waved flags and blew whistles.
And Skaife was even sin-binned with a drive-through penalty after using his Holden to strike Steve `Junior' Johnson's Ford.
There were hardly any free kicks, but plenty of punting and penalties as the rampaging V8 Supercars battled for space and places on the tight Calder layout.
Ford kicked the first of the majors when Junior took the opening sprint in his rampaging Shell Falcon, but then it was Holden's newest hero who burst out of the ruck.
Paul "The Dude" Morris won the next two heats and the day in his Commodore, giving Holden top spot as Johnson raced home for second.
Holden also cleaned up third thanks to Russell Ingall, with championship leader Skaife maintaining top spot, although his margin was slashed by 100 points.
But the man with the best -- and most predictable -- line of the day was Big Kev McQuay, the sponsor of the Morris-mobile.
The cleaning products king looked as if he was working up to an industrial strength heart attack as he watched his star roar to the finish.
"Get ready, because `I'M EXCITED'," he said.

We must have something wrong with our thinking then mate as I think we are a minority. I wrote a letter to G.P. on the subject (and others) and got no reply Must have been something I said.Ford Man said:
