confused GMH's Mitsublishi falcon!!!

Todays daily telegraph artical, did anyone read it?
well if you havent here are a few quotes. " Commodores that look like magna's. Falcons that look like commodores Whats going on in the new car market?" Falcons that look like commodores! Pffft, all i can say to that is Pffft. Quote"Holdens mighty fagship car has a problem: it no longer looks very different from its great ford rival" They wish. quote " some holden dealers beleive the latest commodore and falcon are now so close in appearance that they are hard to tell apart from a distance on the highway." I think these holden dealers are dreaming. Quote" Mr Handcock beleives the lines have been blurred between the six-cylinder giants to the extent" they look the same on the road"". hmmm.quote" Kim Nolan, of Blacktown West City Holden, agrees on the styling. Some people say the rear end is more like a Magna-its a matter of adjusting to the squarer look rather than the rounded style" Mr Nolan Said. The Falcon has very similar lines- it used to be a very different-looking car[to the Commodore]". I beleive it still is different. Quote " another holden dealer said: ford have made their presence felt, but it isn't worrying us."

Well um what can i say, i beleive the bit about the magna rear end but i cant really say that the Ba Shares much of the Vy styling, thats for sure. I can see( but only just) how they can say it has similarities to the Vx. but no way for the Vy.

Articles like these confirm why I continually refuse to read the rubbish that the daily tele really is.

We were always told that masturbation causes blindness. I think Mr hand(on)cock is living proof of that.

dont believe the ba looks like the vy either.....little bit like the vx though (note little).

they were sort of bagging the manufacturers for not being original (well thats the impression i got!), maybe they should be bagging the public! ford tried to be different with the AU and it hurt them badly, aussie public want something theyre used too - too different and it scares them!

as if the other manufacturers wouldnt be a little worried thinking/designing outside the box!

I was suprised that they didn't write that the other reason (beside being ugly) the VY isn't selling is because the BA is a far better car.

I guess you can't let the truth get in the way of a good story.

to people that know nothing about cars there are small cars, big cars and sports cars.. so anything that fits in a category looks the same as others. Some people just want to see their name in print so spout rubbish to whoever will listen.

The reason the subjuct of the ba being mechanically better is because these f******** reporters didn't bother to talk to anyone from ford, this artical was a point of veiw from only one side(holden) so of couse they are not going to mention the plain obvious on why ford is gaining some ground. I wish we had some law that made it illegal for articals containing veiws from only one side of the fence!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm it becomes more and more obvious



a)journalists from the daily telegraph are on GMH's pay roll

b) Holden salesmen are a pack of wankers
