Thumbs up TS 50 write up in W.A.

Just opened the auto section in the Sunday Times (W.A.).

Front page,a red TS 50 with heading "MUSCLE CAR".
Has a write up worthy of the best.Half a page in p2 and p3.

Probably nothing that hasn't been said before,but good to see a continuation of the new Ford.

Good:Engine,Optional brakes,Handling,Sound system.

Only thing said in Not So Good:Rear vision,Driver's position,Lateral seat support,Fuel consumption,Optional brake price tag.

HSV,be Warned.

Jon

HSV uses 17.5l *cough wheez cough* premium per city driving. Goes upto 20l in any testdrive at mags. If you add little oil consumption problems, that means the engine needs reconditioning right out of the showroom.
Not to mention the excellent transmission!!
