Its in pretty bad shape as you can see from the pictures with the doors falling off and everything. Not as bad as Salil's but still pretty bad. It comes with a spare wheel in the trunk and a rollbar that can be pushed up and down.and ofcoruse the wipers on the headlights.

Ill shoot the Lambos tommorow, or the Hummers if you want.

I dont want everyone to get bored with too many pictures comming in too fast.

Where are Dippy's pictures? Im dying to know what he got.

Im in half a mind to go down and shoot the Reventon outside in the darkness. I think it would look nice and evil in the low light. Im sure there wont be too many people outside to see how crazy I am either.

Wow dippy.. she is beautiful! good pick.. although an 1:18 kareena would be the icing on the Mustang!! where did you get it from? i am bored of seeing the same scale models at shoppers stop and lifestyle.. and most importantly, how much did u pay for it!

Dear BHPians, Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

A small detour from Ford Mustangs and Shelby’s automobiles. But nevertheless we keep you on track with products from another performance division at Ford, through what outsiders would call a very unusual collaboration.

Here is the link to our August 2008 issue which gives you more insight into this era at Ford:
V7-I8 Aug 2008.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

So get ready to view a whole new series of mile-munchers from Ford.

Best regards,
Neil D’Costa
