Does the FTO actually stand for anything? Does anyone know?

Serious answers please guys - there is another thread in jokes for acronym derivations of car makers names:lol: ;)

Probably easier to look at my profile, it's not called money pit for nothing most of the mods were wanted but we're on a third engine!
first one a spark plug blew (NGK platinum) and knacked the cylinder. Had that replaced and reconned and I'm afraid the con bit should have been in capitals:sad2: as it developed major problems with the cooling and was too rusty internally to try to salvage. it was unfortunate that the car didn't get used much that year so it was to far past the repair to go through the agro of complaining!
the third seems to be OK
The car is actually my wife's :embarrest: as I am more of a two wheel man (old skool harleys) but I get to play. But we still have it cos I think wifey wants to be buried in it :blink: and will not part with it.
