roll Im Loving it...

(I know this is a bit of a boring post, but i had to write it)

As far as i know every single Model is faster then its Commodore equivelant, The GT is back, weve got Turbo, we have superior technology, and of course, most important of all.....It looks better.

Have you noticed the glassy eyed Holden supporters? because everywhere i go i can spot atleast one, atleast one guy that looks at my Ford jumper and then immediatley after at the ground because he knows exactly what is about to happen to him and his beloved Holdens, every aspect of the Falcon is better then the Commodore.....haha.....I love it!

I say take advantage of it. I as a Ford fan have been in the automotive cultural wilderness for the last four years. I only drive a Lazer but ever since Barra I feel like I belong to an actual automotive marque. I think it's the smug feeling all Holden drivers have.
BTW, I am a self-confessed Ford Fan, but I honestly dont mind the VY at all - back or front. Interior is good (not BA good) but apart from those stupid dents in the Headlights, I think it's a devent design. If VY will do anything, it will make AU more publicly accepted. If Holden can meld two different design cues, people will see that Ford did it first.

The Holden lovers on FF are getting a bit "touchy" at the moment, as well as all the other non believers in the general community.

it allways helps when you have a good chuckle at their "cars" infront of them, and finish off with a good head shaking.

Best wishes

YES FUGGEN HOORAY!!!!

i got the latest MOTOR mag today (i think its the latest) and i was having a flick through it at work, (service dept at Holden dealership) got to the VY page and all the other mechanics started taking an interest, showed them the SS and they all started giving it crap!!! as in: "and this is our new VY magna..." "check out the rice on that!" i coudnt believe it!!!! i was loving it!!!!

and then got to the XR6T page, 240kW from 4 litres and 6psi!!!! yougottabefuggenjoaking!!!!! and variable cam timing on intake and exhaust!!!!!! they had a hard time believing the power output, and they were like, ford has DOHC and VCT, alloy head etc, and commo has an iron block pushrod V6... maybe ford has a chance...

THANK YOU FORD PEOPLE YOU ARE ALL DEAD-SET CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!! ALL HAIL THE XR FALCON, AND THE BA IN GENERAL!!!!!
