Only a Ford sounds as nice as a Ford.

Others (like HSV) can try and fail.

(a bit like Harley vs Jappa really).

... the deep, prominent sound of the Blue Oval's 5.0-litre V8 is a winner with enthusiasts, something that has not been lost on Holden insiders, despite the public denials of any issue.


Quote:
As for Ford, the sound is right but its fuel-slurping 5.0-litre will be replaced next year by a new-generation 5.4-litre with overhead camshafts.
Does this mean that Fords are thirstier than GenIII?:redgrrr:

Wouldn't a better solution be to have people driving Ford V8s and get the lawn mowers off the road
