:lol:

Just paid for another track day at Taupo. It's with the Primera Owners club this time. They had a few spare spots, as not enough of their members were willing to risk their exotic cars on the track.

EDIT: just found this on Trademe. Bloody nice, but $50k for an Escort?? I assume most of the cost is due to the YB cossie donk?

I'd say it's 25 to 30K overpriced. Good to see plenty of Cosworth parts in there though.

It's a cool car but it needs to be painted in birdsegg green and the outside needs to look like something your grandmother would drive....

Same old story I have $40k in receipts I want all that money back. Apart from the engine the rest isn't anything fancy.
I dislike the wheels. Wonder if he'd knock 30-40k off the price without them.

yeah, but a "show car" with such a plain interior (old recaro's from a big horn, and looks like the rest of it was finished with carpet from a cheap sub box)

oh yes, and agreed 13" hot wires (with eagers) FTW
