    This is why Ford hit a home run with the Territory. Docile car-like driving manners, and its high level of utility meant it didn't just have to be a family hack.

    Truly an opportunity lost, the Territory could have been so much more.

    Everest is a different market. It's an MC car. Like comparing a prado to kluger.

    Budget constraints mean I'm limited to SZ.

    If you dont mind me asking, what is the budget? $25k will get you into an SZ Titanium petrol, with around 60-70,000 on the clock. Which of course isnt an issue for the powertrains in use in that particular model.

    I never would have picked it But when you see a good specimen it sure is a nice colour.
    Just depends what you prefer seeing in the sunlight - the speck/fleck or full colour look.
    Decided to leave it as is Maurie... I am actually enjoying being able to take it anywhere without fear of carpark damage, I still turn around and look when I park it tho'

    BA is in for its final modifications a true fire flames respray... Hopefully this time I can pump my chest up with an awesome car because the previous respray and ultimately the wrap job that broke my heart I thought had turned me off this thing forever...

    I just took it for a run past the Indy pits , not sure who they were that yelled out but I got spotted lol


    Cars sound awesome today shame its the end of the v8's era and also about the weather forecast for tomorrow

    Have a good weekend guys.

    $15k give or take, or about $8k changeover if I trade.

    Titanium is off the list. They are too heavy. Page 150 in your owners manual spells it all out.

    So you can see with my small budget, even a TS is a stretch. I'm not camping again until Easter next year so no rush to do anything, but once you get the idea in your head about new toys, its hard to slow the momentum.

    Avoided a head on with a mazda2 at 3am this morning by less than 2m...

    Her car was trashed when she finally rolled to a stop.

    Showed dashcam to the police, far out there are some stupidly obnoxious people we share the roads with !

    What's new about this?

    I have never been verbally and physically attacked before while rendering attention to someone injured and clearly in the wrong ...

    I can only imagine what the ambo's have to put up with on a daily basis

    One of my favourite bookface pages. Entertaining and frustrating all at the same time. The comment section gives a scary look at the intelligence of some of the drivers we share the roads with.
