im in the Mustang owners club of Queensland and there is about 90 cars in total.
there is one S351 Saleen 96 that turns up. Apart from that all the others are classics. No-one has late model ambition. they're all stockers. the Real Holden eating combo ford released in the form of a straight 6 4.0 twin cam turbo.. think it is about 280Hp from factory 6psi.. they have been pulling 450 Hp stock block.. http://www.fpv.com.au/

I will get to that side of the world one day, I like to think it would be a great place to live. Enjoy your summer, It's cold all over the states right now (except Hawaii).

well dont talk about it.. just move here.. We need more mustang guys. as far as weather goes im in the northern part of Australia and min temp during winter is about 68F and summer an average of prob 90F.. unpopulated prob 4-5 mill people in the northern half of the country.. Only downfall we get your movies at the cinema 6 months after you.. to give you an idea Elektra was released last week..
if you ever come look us up before you get here

Keep the faith down under. We have 4.5 million people in my back yard here in Los Angeles. Is that 96 S351 red? I thonk I read an article about it sometime back. Like Nut said, I bet you love the slim competition down there.

No mustangs just ricers and holdens to contend with. on a plus side I get looks from every one cos people have only ever seen late mustangs in movies..apart from them being sold through ford since 2001 but they are expensive.. all cobras and are $95,000aus prob $65-$70kUS

Yikes! That's an expensive Cobra! I remember about a year and a half ago a friend of mine was in Aus. and the US dollar was equal to about 2 AUS. How much has changed? The US dollar is sooo weak in Europe right now, people are coming over to the east coast of the US just to shop!


take care.

not sure what the RAWS conversion is.. but a RH drive conversion is approx $18,000AUS. Includes all ADR compliancing. 2001- 2002 cobras sell here for approx $50-$60,000. so if vehichles could be bought and shipped here for $15,000 plus 18 for conversion theres probably some profit and a market in it.. same goes for F150 and Expedition which we dont have..
we do have available new from ford here.:
Focus
fiesta
f250.. these sell around $55,000.. the conversion is done in mexico from memory
f350
explorer the v8 model sells around $55,000 conversion done in mexico to.
aussie built falcons
mazda offsprings the courier ute.. 4cyl models..
and thats about it

I am from https://populationstat.com/china/, and it is my dream to move to Australia. This summer I was going to visit your country, but this quarantine around the world spoiled my plans. I still hope that in half a year, everything will work as before. And I will realize my dreams without a problem. The first time my trip will be for a month. And if I like everything, I will move eventually there.
