Thanks

Firstly, let me thank all of you who posted birthday wishes - unfortunately I didn't have much of a birthday because I spent the entire day en route to Detroit, but I got my best birthday present even later in the week when we got our new program approved.

We have had our Press Launch of the 5.6 engine this week in Tasmania. It went very well. The car and engine combination are seriously good, and I think the press guys enjoyed the drive. Only time will tell what the write-ups will reveal - but based on the early stuff, I think we will get a very positive response. Happy Jack and his boys and girls have done a great job.

All in all, a couple of good weeks for the Blue Oval - with plenty more to come.

Absolutely right!! Just what the doctor ordered!!

I have committed to the purchase of an AV T-Series (or whatever model range it will be) this time next year. I can't wait to see what is in store for me :s6:

And a quick question for both Geoff and HJ - have you guys snaffled a couple of T3's for your own, to replace the existing TS50's? :s5

Geoff, let me say I thankyou and everyone at Ford for turning the ship around. What a future!

By the way, the interview on Business Sunday was very good. All Ford need now is time to make some money (new products).
