A Technicality for Falcon Buyers

If you have ordered a Falcon that was started body build on June 01st 2001 or later, you can now register for the production photos.

Previously it was XR/T only. Now it includes Fortes!
Go to www.ford.com.au virtual showroom for details.

And then the engine bedding in process whilst loading on the trucks (take it to s*x and drop it mate!)

(Sorry, I can't say that number.......)

Geez that'll explain why some cars are ok and some aren't. It's all luck of the draw how much they floored it before they arrive at the showroom.

Glad my baby is ok, i rekcon it will break my heart if i ever found out what they done to my baby before it came to Penrith. :( :( :( :(

Well i guess they gotta make cars tough to withstand that stuff.

I think Vilkas and I are exaggerating.......

On the loading of the trucks, manual cars on a wet day get a clutch workout and a half. That's about as bad as it gets. To put it another way, I always have and always will ship my cars with Toll (formerly Finemores) because the guys that work for them are above average for care of the product.
