We need aussie Fords out here in the US

we definitly need the aussie versions of fords out here in the US because they are soo much cooler than a lot of the fords out here in the US, i mean the new gt and stangs are nice, but fords aussie line offers more appealing cars, eh?

Re: We need aussie Fords out here in the US

Yeah o would think the BA would sell well oer there, with its decent build quality and more of a drivers car than the Taurus and any FWD car over there is.

Would be great to see the new Ford GT and the Shelby Cobra if they build it available over here too!!!

Re: We need aussie Fords out here in the US

Im not sure what the effects of the FTA as far as when the restrictions will be removed but even then there is the problem of the Auto workers Union pressuring restriction of imports

Re: We need aussie Fords out here in the US

i gotcha, i also kinda wished theyd also import holdens to the US. when it comes to fords, Aussie fords are the best, hehe. I should just import one, go down there and ship it back, a xr8 maybe, hehe. if i had the money. someday perhaps

67 they are already importing holdens. Some of them. The new GTO is the Holden Monaro and there is talk of the Ute appearing as a revamped ElCamino.

I'm sure these new BA Fords would sell well in the USA ,they are big look good and with lots of power and the quality is world class as far as im concerned.
Cheers John

Re: We need aussie Fords out here in the US

Hopefully the next generation will be designed to cater for LHD even if there are no export plans for it immediately, and the same for the Territory. Leave the option open. I think the Territory would do a lot better than the Freestyle on the US market.
