Definately a positive, even though it will probably be small numbers.

Well done to Ford Oz for acheiving it!

i like! the only thing i have an issue is that THEY WON'T BE CALLED FORD! :(

still, better than nothing!

look at the price though!!! 33,900 pounds!!! CRIKEY!!! $100,000 for a falcon... that's so bloody expensive! then again, the GTS (GTS-R over there) costs about $150,000 so yeah... it's still expensive!

thats great news....

whats even better is what was underneath...Viper in Oz!

I know it could potentialy take sales from the stang, but the viper is a damn fine car. It will be interesting to see how mitsu go with the conversion, cos tickford got bagged for theirs.
