Gee thats different a Ford Sierra with a 5 litre Windsor V8. How tough is that. Sure is a bit cramped in that engine bay. Imagine the,
"What the?" looks you would get from people as you pulled up at the lights.

Yah, I was born their, but my parents decided to move here to Oz when I was about 4 years old. Pity I didn't stay their long enough to enjoy their Tough V8's. I believe a V8 Perana won some big Race a few years back. Might of been a Targa rally type race :?:
