    Don't know how it drives. Was only finished grooming today and fairviews are sending it over to Tauranga for display on wednesday night at Ultimate Ford. Will be back for the weekend so if the weather is not crap will have a go in it then. FPV drive day at puke on the 11th that will be good chance to stretch her legs. Can't wait!!! I will just have to dribble over pics for a couple more day's.

    Mate.........That's awesome. Great

    I've seen a few FG out on the roads over here in Aussie and the dealers all seem to have an FG Ute or two as well.

    Mrs FJ and I seen a nice manual xr6 Ute at a dealer on the Gold Coast in the weekend too. Very Happy

    Mate what an awesome looking car, I am sure you are loving it.
    I head to Christchurch on July 18 to test drive both GT and F6.
    Boy its a tough decision but after drive day, things will be a lot clearer and I was looking at a car in the blue senstation colour but after seeing your lightning strike beast I am not so sure about blue now Rolling Eyes

    We were driving through a small NSW town yesterday and seen a GT just like Fordace's one so we doubled back to have a closer look and the owner started it up and drove off so we followed him for a while. Great

    The GTE looks a little bit pussy compared to the GT or F6. Embarassed

    They don't do tours anymore but they are starting them back up again soon, they said it had something to do with closing down the Geelong plant and some pissed off workers I believe, but they took our phone number and tried to talk to the boss about letting us in but he was busy so if we're lucky they will give us a ring........They only did it because of being members of the Tickford & FPV Club. So we have until Sunday to see of we can get in. Thumbs Up

    Thats the advantage of your new F6 Ute CJ - you can throw the ice in the back and cart it directly to hell with you :hello:
