Nice quality work on the video and the description of what the GT means to you. Sydney is such a beautiful city. Thank you for sharing. Enjoy the ride!

Love your enthusiasm and articulation of all the great elements of why we all love this car so much! Great job!
A couple years ago, my wife and I did a two week cruise starting in Auckland and ending in Sydney. We stayed an extra four days exploring the Sydney and loved it! The people were friendly and helpful, food was great, plenty of great sites to see.
Thanks for putting this video together and sharing it.

Great to see this. And it looks like a stock pulley car. Beautiful shots of a place I have never been.

I like the video, especially since I find very few (if any) pictures of the GT that really do justice to how awesome it looks in person, but your side-view video from 8:58 to 9:10 show it pretty closely (y) :cool:

+1 on your enthusiasm. Fun to watch. Beautiful city.

Someday, if you can capture yourself going over the original Sydney Harbor Bridge with a Drone from above, Please share that!

Do you need a waiver to drive LHD car in Australia?

The FGT is the top-dawg in my modest little collection, but I dearly love Italian cars from the late 50's thru the mid-80's.

The Charcoal 330GTC in the video is incredible. Speaking of which, one with a Red interior is due to come up on BaT shortly.

How many GT's you think in Aust.

Well, safe to say 1 LHD one exists.

Didn't see any plates on the reviewed GT in the clip....hmm

I want to take mine back to Aust when I retire.
I know I'll miss the US's lazy enforcement of speed limits compared to the tightest country in the world.

Special import regs do help returning expats with keeping LHD cars from RHD conversion....but seems like they still have to meet the 30 year rule (max length before you're ok) to hit the roads.

Would be nice if there was 3:90 - 4:10 rear ends for the GT as city traffic (especially Sydney) isn't what the GT's drive line likes.

If a vehicle is "rare" or of high value it doesn't have to be converted, so Id say the GT's not meeting that requirement either.

Sounds like a deal breaker right there.

Just ask Ultrsportracing how legal limit drivers make up most of the users on the road.
If you drove 5mph around town over the limit, you'll get pinged before the weeks out, same for fwys... and that infringement will come in the mail two weeks later.
Hidden cameras and red light cameras, speed running red lights make hundreds of millions for Govt.
Americans heads would fly off it they did that here for 1 month. Nobody runs red lights in Aust

Thats why the GT needs a shorter trans for some punchy 1-2-3 rips and then slam brakes.

Downright Orwellian. I hope I can live out my years before Vision Zero brings us the same level of oppression here.
