Question Jack to Bow Out?

http://just-auto.com/news_detail.asp?art=35089&dm=yes

Probably not much of a surprise, given the last 12 months.

Thoughts & Comments?

And the return of the V8!
But without a doubt the best decision is as you say

Well it looks like the DRIVE editors have been reading our site again. They have the story now.

I don't think Jacks departure will be a good thing for Ford Aus. He understands our market and the importance of Falcon. Also, from what I understand project "RAPTOR" the AWD Falcon platform is still not signed off by Detroit and that the US is starting to turn away from what they term SUV's.

Not Good!

Ford needs RAPTOR (R5?) to add much needed volume.
