    no engine covers AFAIK - only 200 220 and 250 motors
    Australian Muscle Car ... "It is a sensational high performance vehicle; a beautifully engineered and immensely capable four door Grand Tourer or 'GT' in the truest sense of that tradition."

    No prize for guessing what car they were referring to ... OWN THE ROAD ...

    The 185s had the engine cover on them too, Jeff. Maybe all Tickfords?

    Looks mint, James. My theory is that if you get the ride height nice and proper on nearly any car then even the factory rims on it will look great. If the factory rims aren't downright ugly, a good ride height with them adds to the appeal of a car in my books.

    Do the height and a straight-through exhaust will keep you smiling.

    Exhaust is already done youssef. The sound of this is what sold me on it. Quite possibly the best sounding stock Windsor I've heard. At least from inside it. Could sound like a donkey fart from the outside for all I know.

    Well, now I know why it sounds so good.
    thought I'd stick my head under and see what exhaust it actually has.

    Someone has loved this thing...

    Bloody hell, that exhaust system is probably worth close to half the value of the car! Great score.

    Took it to the drags last night for a run. Was picking it would run mid 16s given its a stock 5.0l and it weighs more than a locomotive.



    Was a few e series there too, and a fuckload of boosted b series.


    The Vl looks tiny next to the lane lol
