Looks Like Holden Built An "AU" "Edsel"
:dog3: If You read the Editorial in Wheels, and scan the Gushing praise for the Turbo, indeed the entire BA range but especialy the Turbo, it's a good bet the media perception has changed for the Blue Oval.
I have never, ever in 30 years of reading wheels, seen them saying an Aussie engine (Barra 240T) was "Brilliant" or sounded like an "M series BMW growling". Let alone say more than 3 sentinces in one article containg praise form Ford without saying something else on the car equally sucked thereby ruling out the good stuff.
These guys loved it. You know what that means - C O T Y !!
But Holden - wow played it too safe - 2 years for the new engines. A mild facelift Woopee.
I guess history does repeat itself, when you get too cocky, seems like now it's Holdens turn, Ford paid the price, this time Holden got sucked in to the mistake that "we don't need to change it much, it's already great. Yeah great compared to an AU Forte Not compared to a Barra.
Can't wait for the comparos, and 1st 3 months V Facts.
