YES!! This is probably the first in a long line of fleet deals Ford will get.
Gentlemen, things are looking up.

Government and Fleet stuff is very important, so yeah it's great news. If this is the trend, large chunks of class leadership will disappear from the Dark Side.

Great news. :s5
I've had enough of these shit commodore wagons and utes. And they're all shitbox autos. I find the landcruisers more comfortable to drive.
The cruisers have better air con too.


All BA

I work for Defence and today had my first drive of a VXII (with only 376kms). Apparently the steering wheel is connected to the tyres but if it wasn't for the fact the car turned I wouldn't have known. Dead as anything. The auto feels dodgy too.

One for the Falcons, lets bash the bommodores where it really hurts, the sales, but if this is a lie, Tasmania will still be Liberal Free

This will most probably mean the Police will be driving the BA's too.
This means bad news for me :)
