How dare you say that a Ford is "just transport"!!!

F**k me. They ignite passion, fury, hate, love, rivalry, employment, interest, freindship (I could go on all day :) ) amongst the masses.

If all you see them as is "just transport" then may I kindly suggest that you piss off and post on a bike or pedestrian forum and leave the enthusiast to discuss these things enthusiastically, without some drongo telling them that the loves of their life are "just transport"!!!

He is true though, unless you have a track car, etc.
Some of us thought like to spend money (waste too), on our cars.
I mean i should be spending less money on the car, and more for other things, house etc. But I like my car, and like to keep it clean, and make it different from the rest.
They are just transport to some, but i love to do it in style, and its a great feeling, when people admire something you own.

That's a big call mate.

I DO own my own place (picked it up for tidy $35,000 three years ago before the big boom down here). Since then me, the old boy and the father in law have spent plenty of time custom orbing the outside (FYI: it looks schmiko). I have also wacked in a new bathroom, toilet, kitchen, etc etc. Estimated value = $190,000. Not too bad hey :wink:


So yes mate, I do spend my money on things that will make money for me and make life that little bit easier.

It's not a good thing to ASSume...

I've never whinged about cops, I've never been pulled over by the cops (every mod I have is above board and legal) and I don't whinge about them (if ya speed, ya speed, that's your own fault). In fact, I can't remember too many people around here doing so...

If you are not interested in modding your Falcon, making it individual, or giving it that little extra bit of stonk (and lets be honest, which self-respecting male doesn't want more grunt :) ) Then, like I said before, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ON FORD"MODS"???

So in future, it's best not make assumptions about people, yeah?

So how about you brush your teeth, have a glass of hot milk and piss off to bed and leave the men (and women), who are passionate about our welded pieces of metal, alone...

I wish i was like Naughtyfalcon.
I just have this urge to spend more money on something thats only going to depreciate. It is stupid, but oh well, i'm only young once, and i can already see where everyone who's a decade or more older is coming from, when they say, you'll get over spending all this money on something that costs you more to insure, more to run, petrol and repairs, etc.
But sometimes, when you're driving them, there's nothing better in the world.
Good buy Downingj!!!
I wish i had of got in before the housing boom around here as well!

I don't want to get into a s**t fight about it, but please show me where in this thread, have you given advice?

Anyhow, if you don't care about this thread and the posts made. DON'T READ IT and/or DON'T POST. Too F**k' easy (trust me, I learnt that the hard way:) ). There are people that are interested in this topic and don't need people like you tellin' em that it's s**t and they need to grow up.

My sister owns a VS and i have driven it fairly regulary. My EL doesn't hold a canlde to it off the line, and whats worse is that my mates standard corolla beats me off the line too ('02 model i think)

Neither car can keep up once we start exploring top end though :)

the auto falcon is certainly no speed demon until 50-odd km/h. Haven't been able to fang a 5 speeder about before to know how it goes for above 80 odd km/h compared to the auto, but i'd imagine it's still got a fair old advantage?

naughtyfalcon: obviously you don't have a very naughty falcon after all?

downingj: let him be, he's matured and grown up :P
