An EL GT is an EL GT. Keep them stock, because there will eventually be nothing like it on the Australian market.

Buy a 5L Mont and mod it's life away. It'll be pretty damn similar.

As ugly as they are, they are still rare as hen's teeth. It's more a respect factor that turns my head.

You say a blot of shame to the GT badge, the funny thing is the EL GT is more of a GT than all these newer BA/BF and FG GT's and for one reason only..... amount built. Yes some might not like the look of EL GT others love them, but dont call them a blot of shame on the GT badge. These new GT's and GTP's are built in there thousands, taking away any sort of prestige from the original GT badging. There were only a few hundred of the EL GT's made which makes them more of a GT than any BA/BF or FG.
I have actually owned a GTP before and yes i agree they are an amazing machine but i still stand by what i have said above.

as long as you do the el gt up right, then im definitly all for modding a high end car. Supercharge it for sure, it doesnt have to make moster power but at least look half decent when you open it up. Would be a nice weekender with a bit of power and something that any ford person would appreciate.

Thats all im thinking, make her sound nice and go reasonably well, thinking supercharger wud be best be as you can easily remove to get the car back to original.
