Somehow your pictures make the FG look good.

Nice one mate.
Are the 290 engines in the XR8 the exact same as the BF MKI 290? or are they making them different but with the same power?

love the front, pity about the interior and rear end. Then again Ford Australia are wadeing through some pretty heavy poo at the moment.
The 290 BOSS is a nice edition though. That motor in the AU would be a sight to behold :P.

engine:

I reckon the interiors the best bit about the FGs.
Looks good mate, the youtube links to the skids aren't working though? :P

those FG's are everything the au and ba's were not. Loved it since I saw them at the motor show, still do. saw a silver one of these at werribee plaza (obviously a dealer). Its amazing to look at them, they look so small. especially sitting beside a BF. amazing work.

that thing could be the next KIT.
