The Ford GT club put on a Ford GT Muscle Car day so I had a trip to heaven today when I went down to Maroochydore to see the Allan Moffat race cars along with a heap of other FORD & Falcon 351-GT's & GTHO's.
Many of these cars are worth $100,000's & the race cars are easily worth $1,000,000 yet people drive their cars on the road. I was amazed! Most of Moffat's cars were driven to the display although they didn't have far to go. They all live at Buderim.
The 1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO phase 3 gave Moffat his first Australian Touring Car title in group 3 racing in 1973 & the first year a Ford Falcon won the Touring Car Championship.
Ah.......... to return to those heady days...............
