    Holy grail media reaction thread

    A thread for links to related content.

    The embargo gets lifted for a Friday posting.

    What will the reaction be?

    It will be huge if itís a positive reaction. Seating position, dated interior, chassis age should all get a (re)run.

    I would hold my breath but I am already blue.

    Motor mag have an article coming via Scott Newman in hardcopy. Dave Morely gets his turn tomorrow with his piece.

    I can imagine what they'll have to say. But let's not let them spoil the day. Hopefully they just celebrate the car for what it is.

    Disappointingly we were not invited to be part in anyway with the media launch so we will have to suffice with what’s said.

    https://www.whichcar.com.au/reviews/...-Falcon-review


    The article suggests it’s been fitted with a bigger intercooler. Let’s just say it’s been fitted with an intercooler full stop.

    Rev limit was 6250 not 6000.

    But apart from that wow.

    This is very unexpected.

    Couple of points that’s been raised previously. Suspension bushes do appear to have been altered and our much maligned chassis, concerns about it being overpowered, is this even the same car.

    10 seconds a lap faster around Winton than a 335 FG GT on the same day.
    And altered cam timing, new steering pump.

    This is far more than a simple tune and intercooler.

    Some good reading and glad its coming out positive to me and yet also sad what might have been, even not to this level of complete package but even half of it would have made us all dribbling at the mouth getting one.
    In saying that its a huge outlay and not I guess, when I think back what owners of very nice very modded GT's such as Colville's if I can say and many more have poured in their beloved's trying to find their own HG this is fair price wouldn't you think ?
