Re: convincing dad 2 buy a ford?

Tell him why all taxi's (well, 99.95%) are Falcons. Because they're the only locally made car on offer that can cope with 1 million+ km on the original engine. That should have you set in the quality stakes.

Re: convincing dad 2 buy a ford?

did you say crewman?????

Have him ask the 40% of crewman buyers who have already sold their car - even with bad resale prices......and been happy to lose.

I'm sure they can shed some light on the beauty of the crewman.

Re: convincing dad 2 buy a ford?

He's probably seen more fords broken down because you say he likes fords over holdens so he probably cringes evertime he sees one and remembers it, when if he sees a holden he miht just laugh it off and forget about it.

Re: convincing dad 2 buy a ford?

If he wants a duel cab, Ford dont have anything to offer, thats why i bought a Rodeo, the Courier just does not compare.
If only Ford made a duel cab 4wd BA ute, i would own it.
