$14k for a bastardised mk2 not running a ford engine or drive line, thats been cert'd is asking for trouble and far to much money.
Panelbeaters can do more then fit panels now, news to me. Not a selling point either.


Don't get me wroing I'd rather have mint legit mk2 GT. But still this would be fun, the non-cert thing definitely does scream avoid though! Agreed its over priced too.

My mate did this on the weekend hill climbing what was a Nissan 240RS race car, came off the top of the Wallaceville hill General Lee style.
Luckily mild concussion only, but he might be done with racing, it sounds like there was lots of the old life flashing before his eyes, and thinking about his kids as the car freefalled :crazy:

I'd rather a Mondeo then a Monaro* :p

Most of the manufacturers already do it so its not that surprising. But by god why pick the worst car of the lot :cry: It would be like toyota ditching all but the cavalier in the mid sized car range.





*Well atleast one of them ghey looking new ones

It could just be a ploy to angle for more subsidies. Australian built cars have only survived this long on fat taxpayer handouts and tariff barriers. It's about time the american corporates got off the public teat.

THAN not then.

Makes you look like an illiterate grom, little better than txt'ing thir way through life.

And totally changes the meaning of what you type.

As typed, you want both a Mondeo and a Monaro.

If you used THAN you would be indicating a preference for the Modeo over a Monaro.
