    BWCP stands for Broad Water Car Park. Its a massive car park on the waters edge at Gold Coast broadwater where it just gets totally packed out on saturday nights with anyone and everyone in the car scene. Gold Coast is about 70kms south from Brisbane, and its like LA.

    The 'american' pontiac GTO is a rebadged and left-side-drive Holden Monaro, another Aussie muscle car ... So I guess it's one of those "you all look alike to me situations"; where you seppos think all our cars look alike, and we recoil in horror at the mere thought of saying something like that in Australia ... !
    Something like ... Damn that Dodge Ram and F250 could be twins ...

    The XR6 is wicked though. My mate has a silver one, I have to walk past it on my way to and from lunch, best 2 moments of every day ;o) I think at one point they were the most powerful car under 50k? Something like that, maybe they still are in fact, I'll have to check ... Nice going but Stimps!

    That is a sweet machine... Ford definitely are on top of Holden at the moment,

    Love seeing all these Yanks moaning about steering wheel on wrong side etc. If they only knew the pedigree of the big Aussie RWD machine... Goes fast both in a straight line AND round a corner

    anyways, nice nice car, and nice system. the car resembles a mustang, is this what it would equate to in the states?
    Similar to the Mustang yes. Everything here is dirived from SOMETHING somewhere else in the world. The Holdens are all modelled on either german cars (commodore) or american cars (GM) but here GM is called GMH (general motors holden)
    and Ford are all similar. All the jap stuff of course is still grey imported.
    One thing different here is the FORDS have CAN OBDII interface, not PWM as listed on the net.

    What I meant was that I could see Ford using a similar chassis with different skin. I am by no means a fan of the Taurus, but looking over the American line of Fords, IMO it looks similar in size. But I think it was mentioned that the XR8 is RWD so that is probably not the case - it is probably a different animal all together.
