those guys are entitled to write about whatever they want! as to whether it deserves any attention, it certainly has in ford's top management but they're just brushing it aside. everything mentioned they're already aware of.

IF this P76 award is directly aimed at commenting on the AU than i totally disagree.

I love the AU more and more. Now i think it looks better than the EL.

Yeah EF FALCON GUY. It was aimed at Ford in general, though some points were directed at the AU. In particularly sales figures against Commodore. Love to know the true figures not the ones Holden PR give them. They also cited Fords failure to win at Bathurst this year which I think is a lame call. It was a great race, don't think Ford is giving itself an uppercut over it.
I'm with you on the AU. I drive one and don't appriciate articles like this that only serve to reduce resale values and undermine a great motor company. Maintain the rage!!!

Guys, there was a whole thread on this earlier.
