In recent years, LCVs (light commercial vehicles) like Ford’s Ranger, have been turned into SUVs. Everest is one such result. I saw Ford demonstrate their Ranger at the last Sydney Motor Show and here are some pics from inside.  Ford had cunningly set up a display by stacking shipping containers. With several together at angles and 45° ramps [...]

    My previous favourite Ford, the Focus ST comes in at $43,325 (on road NSW) which is a full $12,520 cheaper than the RS, so is the RS worth the extra bucks? In a word, yes. It is glorious. The 2.3 Ecoboost the star pony in Ford’s stable. In various modes of tune, it powers many models, including Mustang. [...]

Is Ford’s Mustang a Must-have, even the 4 pot screamer.

    First, a little about phone mirroring: Ford is equipping 2017 Mustangs with Apple Carplay/Android Auto, hoorah. It turns the car audio system into an extension of a smart phone, and at last, makes hands-free use easy. Most people have trouble reading car manuals, but worry not, every smart phone user knows how to recharge their trusty personal assistants. [...]

Pony Up, the GayCarBoys Posse is Moving Out: Mustang GT Fastback

By |2017-03-10T14:23:56+10:00March 26th, 2016|Ford Reviews, V8|2 Comments

  Mustang is Ford’s new Muscle car imported from the good ol’ USA. It is ferociously fast and drinks like a drag queen.

When I’m old (er), I’m going to sell up and head for a mountain where I shall build a cabin with my bare hands. Actually it will probably be a couple of fitted out shipping containers off-grid. I picture myself surrounded by green trees with thick ancient trunks, and a view out to the ocean in the distance. I can [...]
