mad Motor mag are idiots

I checked out the Australian LS1 and Holden forum and there is a post form 'UNDIETAKER' saying that he bought the June edition of Motor mag and he said that it has the AV Falcon unmasked.
Correct me if i'm wrong but did'nt Motor mag sign a confidentiality contract with Ford?
If this is true i'm very beered off because Motor mag went behind Ford's back and now i have nothing to look forward to

Motor mag didn't show an unmasked AV, it was an artists interpretation.

And why is it that these Holden guys seem to think that Ford have copied the Monaro?? Do they realise that the VT based Monaro was designed almost 10 years ago by Opel?? I bet everybody thinks that Simcoe guy did it!!. Fact is, the concept was around before Australia even had VT commodore here!

If it does look like a Monaro the AV should sell quite well

Just another Holden idiot, who has absolutely crap all idea what he's on about.......notice that his comments go along the lines of the majority of Holden morons, ie engines and horsepower. What about handling, ride and grip? Not to mention reliability. Ford is alrady ahead in these depts. and is set to fly ahead further with the new ctrl blade IRS and revamped production lines. As for engines, well when the AV engines come out, thier last line of defence will be gone too!!
