Marcos Ambrose Championship Winning BA Falcon

Post by Oldtimer » Fri Feb 07, 2014 10:15 pm

Just acquired one of my Holy Grail V-8 Supercars (even though I am not necessarily a Ford Fan).

Marcos Ambrose broke into the V-8 Supercar Series in 2001, and finished 8th in the championship; for 2002 he finished 3rd; but in 2003 he dominated the Series driving the #4 Pirtek-sponsored BA Falcon for the Stone Brothers. He repeated in 2004 in a similar mount, yet carried the Champion's #1.

I already had the #1 2004 in my collection.

But the #4 in which he won his first Championship had eluded me, until now!

Enjoy! :beer:

Very nice livery. I don't have many CC cars, but I know there quality is very good. How would you rate these?

I will say that the highest "quality" model I have is the BBR BB512 LeMans racer (which is absolutely magnificant), but I also have numerous Exoto's, contemporary AutoArt's, and older UT's/Lane's/GMP's/etc. Being a Nascar fan, I also have numerous later model Action versions (which are the most detailed of the 1/18 scale Nascar stock cars).

To me, the CC V-8 Supercars are among the best detailed models I have in my collection. Not only the livery, but the hose and wiring systems, suspensions, interiors, and chassis are wonderfully executed. I do not have any of the Biante versions of the Supercars, and have only one AutoArt, so limited ability to compare, however I really like them (enough to have over 30 in my collection).

Good to hear. Thankfully they don't produce many models that go with my themes or I'd be in serious trouble financially :)
