Probably a lot!

I know the floor pan in my EB has a few dints in it, but no cracks, and it doesn't get an easy life.

I thought it was an attempt at traction control. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Sort of like how people throw various things in their ute trays to weigh it down.
most of you have seen the r8 vs f6 :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah about the commo's as taxi' yeah extremely rare, although as one guy said theirs a fair few of the stateman silver service cars, I just thought to myself if only he knew how few k's the silver service have under their belt in comparison.

lol forgot about the petty

fords are heavier because they have oversized performance testicles.

i have an idea to get a cheap small english chassis say a vauxhall .
bring it to australia at the same time source a american engine lets say a buick.
weld the ugliest possible parts and missaligned panels to it .
slap an austrailian made sticker on it and then mass produce
what can only be described as an automotive abortion.
it will be the ultimate car for all fat chicks circus freak,bogans,mining apprentices, drug dealers and 6 fingerd people from cessnock
