Melbourne Motor Show

Has anyone received tickets this year from Ford Australia for free entry to the Melbourne Motor Show? I got offered them last year but I could go due to work committments.

Anyone seen freebee's this year?

AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: Melbourne Motor Show

I have apparently won some...same way I won tickets to the Boxing Day test match...just by following a link on a Ford email and filling in my details. Am waiting with baited breath for them to come in the mail.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

Well we have seen Commodore based: sedans, wagons, "SUVs" - yeah right, "commercial trucks" again yeah right, limos, cop cars, panel vans, hatchbacks, coupes, convertibles, utes, crew cab utes. Seems like the market doesnt demand anything other than Commodore based...

Holden, please make a car that is bigger and better than a Commodore with styling that does not relate to a Commodore

That's why I think Ford's on a winner with the Territory, its a new body style.
Lets hope theres an FPV version with the 270kw/550Nm

While that would be nice, its just feature creep on an already confirmed car.

F6 Typhoon is going to be a head turner for sure, however its "Just another Falcon".

What i'd like to see - and I doubt it, would be a roadster based on the focus or something similar. Something REAL concept like. Use the focus as the base - create a low slung low weight, rear wheel driver with a turbo 4 or the 5 litre cammer V8 engine. Come on Ford INSPIRE ME!
