data_mine: I'm one fussy mofo when it comes to this sort of stuff.. looking at something done half-a*** on my car will really piss me off.

cthawas: Thanks for the heads up i'll check with Ford. I suppose $400 isn't too bad if all i need is the insert.. at least i have access to Ford employee discounts :)

Fairlane by Tickford.. basically a Fairlane with GT running gear. Also had 17" speedline wheels as opposed to the GT wheels and a sexy grille that i've wanted for many many years lol...

EL GT grille will set you back $1,600 (that's if you can get one anymore).

No I don't have a pic of it on a car - it's not mine, and the owner realised before it made it onto the 'concorde' that it'd look very dodgy so he didn't.

I'm pretty sure you need a VIN number to purchase one of these from Ford if you can find one with one lying around

The real deal looks the goods - much better than a mocked up insert...although I do think one could be fabricated if you knew someone who was good with steel...
