Trip to the SMS
Greetings all I have just returned from the boringest motor show I have ever seen.
Nothing new and exciting at all, with the exception of the Pursuit Ute and the TS50.
I had a look at the world changing Monaro and found out it is a $60,000 Executive with 2 doors missing. The only feature that it had was the Holden Assist and that is mounted on the interior rearview mirror and the wire was wraped in isulation tape dangaling from the hood lining. The thing didn't even have climate control! If Holden fans go for this thing so be it, but I know it is nothing great.
The Ford stand was allright but not great, the whole T3 range should have been there. The video display(the big one on the wall) Ford should be showing alot more local content with the V8 Supercars and past Bathurst victories eg 1977 finish. F1 or Indy doesn't relate to the Falcon. Video's of skiing and motor cross, what was that? Give the image that the Falcon is all Aussie, like (dare I say it) Holden, Showing nothing but the product on display, local motorsport. I know GP said that you are talking to yourself with Motorsport, but you gotta relalise that it is very influential. Ford need to show the product in action sounds and sites of it. That goes for it's TV ads too!
And get rid of the F series it a waste of time. I saw that F250 there and read the info board. The thing only carries 1.08tonnes! $70,000 for a over grown ute! I might aswell just go out and get a Falcon ute with a tray for half the price.
OK enough of the winging :p
The new TS50 is great and so is the Pursuit Ute, this is what Ford should have done earlier. I got lots of happy snaps to tak to bed with me...hehe
Ok I'm done...lol
