Smile Forums Gets a mention in E-news

Just was reading an article about FPV in the latest John Mellor E-News and came across this little statement...

"The debate over what FPV should bulid next is currently bubbling along on the FordForums.com website, with a hotter XR6T grabbing over 50 per cent of the votes, and FPV fettled Focus and Raptor models neck and neck at about 24 per cent."

And the article goes on.. interesting to see we are making an impact out there (being everywhere.. hehe :s6:)

The rest of the news can be read here:

Excellent stuff indeed! Now how many publications have we appeared in to date - I'm guessing it's about 4-5? We've had AP's interview, the leaked VY pics in The Age and another paper I'm sure, and I'm certain there's one or two more?

As for you JR, why aren't you camped at the dealership? GET OUT THERE AND PITCH YOUR TENT!!!! ... err... perhaps not the best phrasing... anyway, you know what I mean!

Great to see!

FF also featured in a small article about the raid last year in one of Ford's general interest press releases.

The website has also been mentioned in a local paper here in NZ -it is also great to hear that we got a mention in John Mellor's e-news.

I hope the word continues to spread.

I'm a happy camper!

Leaked VY pictures in the 2 biggest selling papers in the country.. The Herald Sun & The Australian. AP's article was also in the Australian.

On a persoanal note it makes me very proud to be involved in this place when you see this sort of noteriety happening.

And it's all due to the quality of the membership of this Forum. [/blatant suckhole!]
