Wiiiiieeeerrrrrddddd.... it's like my Sable and Ashley's Taurus mated! Made the color and everything. I think she has daddy's "eyes" he he he

Nice Taurus!

I think it's a too bad that didn't add the hand brake in the US that woulda been bad ass.

It's more of a mindfsck driving, you go to make a left turn and since turning left in the US, you go towards the middle of the road for the turn lane... you find yourself going right instead... hard to explain, but it can screw ya up a bit.

Um, actually, it looks like you lost that bet. :icon_cry: The pedals are in the same places. Gas on right, brake on left.

Anyway, lookin' good wozza! :chili: :coolgleam:

Looks great! B) Do you have rear disc brakes? It's hard to tell from the picture... I'd love to get a hold of a center console out of that to put in a handbrake (if I still had my Gen 3) ;) Also, what does Ghia mean?

I believe the "GHIA" is the US's version of the LX

I was thinking the same thing... it'd be awesome to have that console so we can have the hand brake.... When I saw that I was like son of a ........! I WANT IT! :p

Forgot to ask... Where in VIC are you? You mention the bay, so I'm going to assume the Melbourne area... but what city?

I live in a Suburb called Brighton. Its like the nice area of Melbourne. The car has a Duratec engine, and its rated at 149kw (i think its the same as the American one).
The Ghia is pretty much the LX, its what Ford puts on Top of the range models here.
And yes it does have rear discs.

mmm, hope I answered everything
