I have to get this off my chest. Tonight at work I spoke to a young person who is set to buy a new car. (He has 40k) I asked him what type of car he wanted to get. He said he had no idea. Being a Ford man i thought "Here is a chance to sell the man a BA and do my bit for the cause."
Anyway i told him "What you reckon of the new falcon, pretty nice hey?". To my amazement he goes "The new Ford! YOU LIKE FORDS!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA THEY ARE SHIT!!!!!!!!!" I usually cop this from ignorant mates so i said "Yeah, yeah but what you reckon of the new one, looks great, nice features and pretty decently priced compared to other makes eh?"
Ensteins replys "YEAH BUT FORDS ARE SHIT MAN!!!"
So i asked him are you going to actually have a look at the new falcons and consider buying one? He told me "Nah waste of time, HOLDEN RULES MAN!!"
Do you see what i am talking about here - if Holden outsells Ford with their VY you can put it down to this moronic attitude from the general public that have been influenced by the media as well as the V8 Supercars.
Now although i am a Ford man and always will be (I stuck through AU goddamnit!) i consider myself a car connoisseur rather that a one eyed dick head. I looked at both VY and BA at dealers on numerous occassions closely and thought without doubt and all bias aside the Falcon is better.
But how can we get people like these to do the same.........
Please God let the BA outsell the VY - prove me wrong.
