Maracoonda F650 – do it for the environment

Maracoonda F650 – do it for the environment

This is how they roll in Queensland. They take a Ford F650 (with engines up to 7.2 litres, making 300+hp and over 1100Nm of torque), and convert them to right-hand drive.

That would be pretty intimidating if it was for use on urban streets, but over in Ozzie it’s all relative because there’s the ever present threat of having your manhood shriveled into submission by a passing road train.

But, the Ozzies don’t do it as well as the Yanks, who have been pandering to redneck requirements since records began.
