foot and mouth = Crennan

Quote:
"XU-6 we have phased out," said Mr Crennan. "We liked it as an entry point but sold only 20 per month - around as many as our opposition sold in total. We really don't have a time for its return, it's on our list of things we want to do."
i presume he means the XR6 but then again his head is so far up his arse its little hard to see anything, not only that but he just basically too all the 6 cyclinder fans.

Thank god we have great guys like Geoff and David running our favourite companies!!

No, I think he was referring to FTE which is HSV's opposition. I guess he meant that they sold more XU-6s than FTE sold in all their range.

XR6 sold real well!

crennan you arogant bastard!!!

read the last couple of lines of this article

http://www.goauto.com.au/mellor/mell...256C5900003AE7

quoting John Crennan:

"XU-6 we have phased out," said Mr Crennan. "We liked it as an entry point but sold only 20 per month - around as many as our opposition sold in total. We really don't have a time for its return, it's on our list of things we want to do."

is he talking about Ford/Tickford???
surely not even he is stupid enough to think that Ford only sold 20 AU3 XR6's!!!

Thats how i am reading it anyway ''only sold 20 p/mth - around as many as our opp. sold in total."

He must be talking about Ford, 'cos FTE never built a T-series 6 cyclinder.

If anyone else reads his comments in a different way can you correct me 'cos I am shaking my head at the ignorant, arrogance that this man has.

signing off.

I believe he was insinuating the T Series vehicles and I also agree with your views that he is arrogant. Although to take it literally it would mean that the 'opposition' would be selling XU-6's???

wouldnt surprise me one bit...remember this is the bloke who caned Craig Lowndes when he switched to ford, said that Peter Brock's V8 Supercar team would be "crushed" just like everyone else, and that Russell Ingal was "passed his used by date".

Cant wait to fly past his Maloo (most powerful ozzy utes according to him!!) in me XR8
