Thumbs down Falcon is NOT Car of the Year !!!

Sorry Ford fans but after a study of the car Sammi Lucas showed thismorning during the weather on the Today show, the profile of the car looked more like a sports car with swooping back than a large family sedan.

I Hope I am wrong but It doesnt look good for the Falcon

:(

Who would have honestly thought Wheels would have changed their ways? Ford could build a Mercedes E class and sell it for Falcon price and they would never choose it. Since VT won and AU did'nt ive cut back to 2-3 copies per year {only if theres good Falcon news} but this will see me purchase 0 from now on. Ive said it before they test a new Falcon and its the best thing ever but when it comes to the comparos that matter all of a sudden they say its lacking here and there. Ive no doubt Ford has a closer relationship with Motor and i support it.

Never fear, as they showed this morning, winning COTY is no guarantee of sucess. Past winners include the P76!

Nuff said.

Dont worry guys... bugger what wheels think..

Ford have already won numerous awards for Barra, and even without these awards, the BA would've been a success. Its a great car, and he acceptance among the community reinforces this.
