biggrin Is the trend starting to turn??!

I went to the royal adelaide show the other day and was very happy with what I saw!!

Believe it or not their was a ford display set up and no holden display!! I have dreamt about a day like this!

They had some lasers, mustangs, falcons, but the key to all of it was a TE50! the center of attention to everyone!

They were also selling ford merchandise, such as bomber jackets, hats, model cars, badges etc... sporting the XR, craig lowndes and ford logos! It was finally good to see people looking and saying how great the cars were! and actually buying FORD hats!

well done to maughan theim ford on this one! about bloody time!! :s6: :s6: :s3

I dare say in the last 8 months Ford has started to realise that merchandise sales is a huge way to hightlight its brand name in the market place

we all know how great HSV are at selling G strings, we just need Ford to jump on the same band wagon.

excactly. we went to a small show up here in the sticks about a month ago and there was a little van there selling hsv gear. but alas no ford stuff.
there would have been about 5 to 1 ratio of people wearing hsv to djr, seton etc.
