Here's one for ya, just for fun.

I was rumbling arond my poster collection when I found a poster of the predator, the, gold, 6 cyl, LPG powered, EF/EL Showcar that was on display at the motorshows around OZ during the Mid 90's. What exactly was it?? I was only about 12 at the time and was just wondering where the mean looking beast went (Probably disassembled into fords spare parts bin I suppose).

Not only that but what happened to Sony Scorcher, the 2 door EA Falcon project the Street Machine Did during the late 90's. I saw it for sale last year. I think it was in Unique Cars.

Does anyone know what happened to these 2 good looking Beasts???

Go for it,
Shannan,

I had a quick look for the predator or google, but kept coming up with, fords "predator desiel engine", "Diablo Predator" or "Predator Module" it was no good.

BTW: I know its for I6 engines, but it seemed kinda stupid to post one in I6, and the other in V8 forums!

Since neither thread would be specifically about the I6 or V8 engine it wouldnt go in either. Off-topic is where this stuff is usually talked about :wink:

I seen the sony scorcher @ summernats this year, looked pretty good cond there, current owner must be taking some care of it.
I've got some recent pics of both cars on my website.
i got a heap of photos of the predator when it was in the holding area at the ford discovery centre.
