No we never did. I think that may be a good thing though. Although I have seen that grill on a factory air vent once.

I think that was meant to represent a tent or annex not a sail LOL I would put money on that it was a 351 V8.

Its unfair to shame the Americans all the time when the locals are just as bad. I have often warned you guys of the extreme V8 element here. Here is some Australian Pride.

The Mexico stripes are a nice touch. I wonder what he thinks the connection is between his green monstrosity and a UK Mexico?

Nothing wrong with that Mk1 except for the front camber. That Mk2 rear light treatment is truly awful however.
If you're talking Aussie V8 OSFs though, how about this one, aptly called Overkill?35432095701_a9cd2f1253.jpeg

I suspected you would chime in and like that MK1 being the hotrod devotee that you are 😀. Only that it uses a 253 GM Holden V8, one of he most pointless V8 engines ever created you may not like it as much.

What's with the weird vents?

Yes that certainly is overkill.

I was thinking the same thing...

We use to chase down the 253 guys in our stock Escorts and you should have heard them whine so loud being beaten by stock 4 cyl that they didnt need blowers for noise!

15s and tucked in the arches. i am a 13" wheel guy but a pro street car usually has 15x15 mickey thompsons on the rear. smaller on the front. as well as classic fords i love hot rods and that type of scene too.
