Off to the Ford Launch on the Gold Coast

Thursday is the big day for me this week, got my invite in my hot little hand now,
Ford Lauch of the Falcon, Focus and Courier,
Says on the invite to drive the new Falcon, and also a new jacket is on the way from ford, all complimentary....
Good to be looked after, the company has always had a fleet of falcons, nice to be recognised..... good job Ford.
And thanks, thurday can't come quick enough.

Cheers Benny

Thumbs up well well well...

Well all the waiting and the torment has finally ended!

This evening at City Ford I got up close and personal with some truly fantastic BA's.

1x Red (240Kw) XR6T
1x Mercury Silver (182Kw) XR6
1x Mercury Silver Fairmont
2x Falcon XT's
1x Falcon Futura's
1x FalconXLS Ute

They were incredible. After drooling over the pictures for so long, to finally get the chance to sit and touch these things was GREAT!

The change from the AU to the BA is just amazing. The interior is unbelievable. The whole car is just ACE!!!!

Apart from the obvious stand out 240Kw Turbo, all of the cars were totally awesome. I personally have a new soft spot for the XR6 N/A. The only downside was the lack of any V8's!

Only thing left too do now is drive one!

Cheers,

Jas!
