Re: ford forums history

i think that aussie have that special bond with there cars that the yanks dont
there seems to be pride and heritage in owning a ford in australia, whereas there less of that in america.

probably due to the fact that your either a "ford or a holden man"

this site rocks ive been here for ages!!

Trust me it's pretty similar in the US. Over there they still have a lot of pride & heritage, but mainly in classics such as the GT40, Mustang and Cobra. I think it's a little diffent as the hero cars are more expensive but they still love them as much as we love GTs and Monaros. Also notice public reactions when an American company reborns a historic concept, the media is all over them... I must say though they put a lot of effort into them, I think they all look awesome.

Re: ford forums history

I think it's just that there are so many Ford fans in the US that there are separate forums - ie. Mustang forums, GTs etc.

Re: ford forums history

This forum took off when BON started to die back when i registered.

Yes it was originally Yank Based, owned by a Friggen Holden driver of all people.

That soon changed, and the database started to build.

Of course we had other people who saw the sucess copy the forums and start others, but none have reached the member number as Ford Forums

LunaticSVT owns the forums, has paid for it out of his own pocket for many a year, and thanks to all donating members and sponsers who have kept it going today!
