How about a high quality watch, not any of that cheap $100 stuff but something from casio, citizen or seiko.

On top of that, they should try and put the fpv cars and the xr6t into the next instalment of Gran Turismo for the playstation, whenever the next one is due out. Beach towel wouldnt go astray either.

Just looking at the "ford shop" and see the new ford racing logo is surrounded by a "wreath"
This is just my opinion BUT what are these guys on?

To me, wreaths releate to DEATH.

Gotta say they dont really do it for me and I dont really see how they promote racing

I am into merchandise in a big way but I certainly wont be buying any wreath logos

Could be wr..wr..wr..wrong

What do you think?

i don't live in one of the big cities so i won't get to see merchandise unless it's mail order. maybe that could be an idea, make the stuff more available to country folk.
i would'nt mind a new picnic blanket to toss in the boot.

Personally, I would like:

FPV/XR pillow cases ...so I can sleep and dream of FPV
FPV/XR polar fleece vest
FPV/XR mug....a slightly better quailty one than the current ford range
FPV/XR watch....the current one is good but an FPV would just add to the range
FPV/XR boxers and other general every-day clothing (shorts, socks, t-shirts)
FPV/XR deck chairs for the car when you go out on a FPV club trip!
FPV/XR plastic dinner set for the picnic basket (yeah!) and maybe the whole picnic basket thing while we are at it.
FPV/XR earrings for the ladies (and guys?)
FPV/XR halter top for the ladies

I think too that it shouldn't be just a standard products with a logo struck on...no, we need a stylish approach...like maybe having the logo around the edges or in places that isn't just in the middle of the product. Example...the mug coulod have the FPV or XR logo going around the bottom of the cup with maybe a image of the car where the current 'Ford' logo is. Or maybe on the dinner plates, have the various cars in the centre of the plates with the logo around the edges...

Soemthing a little different....

HSV do them, so why not?!

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
