    Sorry I will be the wet blanket here. Love the stance but the carbon add ons just don't do it for me. The rear wing is OK but not a fan of the rest. Hats off to Tickford though for their continuing work. Love what they are doing but this one isn't for me.

    If they removed the blue on the sides i'd be more at peace with it.

    The Retro livery (like the Moff 77) will polarize people, to many just because it was cool in 1978 doesn't automatically mean it has the same impact in 2018.

    That said its a tribute car so it will be aimed squarely to appeal to those who feel a connection with the 78 Cobras.

    For everyone else you can probably just peel the stickers off or order components of the package to suit your tastes.

    While the wheels look ok remember the whole of Australia is not in Sydney and Melbourne and 20" wheel do not play well on shit roads.
    On the other hand $2750 for a 400kw tune with a warranty on a $60k car will be the "fries with that" of the century.

    Yeah 20's with low profile tyres are getting sketchy on outback roads.

    More like 70k DA+ now, Pony got a price hike for its birthday.

    100% agree norm. Tastes are a funny thing. I liked the Moff livery on the Mustang and thought it worked really well.

    I love everything about it except those blue stripes. The widths just don't look right.

    Is that price actually right? 3k for the 400kw tune? Some spend more than that with the Ming mole.

    Exactly right. And with the shop in Northlakes there are a lot of Mustang dealers within rock throwing distance.

    FPV has vanished. In its absence, the sinister Comaro has risen from the ashes of HSV and will not rest until Mustang, the last Ford Performance Vehicle, has been destroyed.
    With the support of Tickford, General Bernie Quinn leads a brave RESISTANCE. His goal is to restore Ford to its rightful place of grand master of touring.
