    Nothing about Ford or Chevy Trucks, eh? That's right, they wouldn't DARE offend one of us.

    Guess my old black '33 ford didn't qualify for comment nor did my red Eddie Bauer Explorer. Oh well...I like(d) them.

    My 92 F-150 says I'm poor :)

    I had a Dodge Dart once actually pretty nice '75 Special Edition 318. I used to love it when people would look down their noses at it, give it the gas, kick the Holley 4bbl in and get that nice whoooomp out of the turbo exhaust.

    Don't feel bad Jerry, I drive a '87 F-150! I do have an '01 Ranger also though .
  8. Doglips,

    You didn't mention the Chrysler PT Cruiser--------the 'look at me...look at me...look at me' car, lol.

    Heck Jerry I'd kill for a F-150, they've only just started selling them again over here. Cost- $55 000, for the base model F-150.

    Tell ya what Mick old mate, since I like ya I'll put ya in a '87 F-150 for only $10,000....deal? :rolleyes: :p
  11. NRA does that include shipping and handling?

    That's an extreme mark-up!

    Yep AlanC: Everything's included except the motor, wheels, heater, body, frame,... That's the cost of a model F150 plus a picture. (ha)

    Seriously, I wonder why an F150 would cost so much in Australia? Is the tariff that high?
  13. BattleRifleG3

    BattleRifleG3 G&G Evangelist

    What's the currency conversion? Maybe 55k Australian isn't as much as we think.

    Yeah Mick,
    gotta put it into perspective. I'm pretty lucky. It's a bad disease we Americans have, allways got to be more :)

    1*, I think you have it backwards. Look at the numbers again. $55k Australian is about $30k American.
  19. Oxford

    Here's how I'd figure the cost for converting Australian dollars into USA dollars using the following conversions:

    1 USA Dollar = 1.8286 Australian Dollars
    1 Australian Dollar = 0.5469 USA Dollar
    $50,000 in Australian currency for an F-150 Ute


    0.5469 x $50,000=$27,345 US Dollars

    What does it cost for a new F-truck over there, trying to work out the import taxes our democratically elected theives are making of us.
