cool Your Thoughts

I would be interested in your thoughts on the following;

1) Tickford NOT producing anymore XR Series after 2003

2) The Demise of the T Series Range

3) What is the New Color Scheme that Ford will bring out for the New Model?


My thoughts would be that the XR Range is the only thing that has kept the Tickford Name running so long and the T series has been nothing but an embarisment to Ford.

The Color Scheme is a tricy one though!, beats me what they will introduce

Not too concerned as long they continue producing performance cars probably with a different name that are affordable.

T series no sad loss. BRING BACK THE GT!

Colours I hope there would be more variety as long they're not too daggy.

1) If Tickford don't produce the XR series it should go to ford to produce so tickford can concentrate in the T series

2) T Series should stay, get some decent motorvation and they will sell quite well, they need to put a bit more effort into selling these cars...

3) You tell me and we'll both know, I would like to see a return of a gold style colour though (Like whats on my XF) Paint code "W" named "Olympic Gold Metallic"

Once the T series have a decent Motor I can't see why they can't sell. Ford should do a lot of advertising just to get the name out in the public car buying arena, only car people really know what the T series cars are at the moment.

I don't think you are giving The T series enough time. I think it will build in popularity if Ford's image improves as i'm sure it will with more POWER on tap. Ford's image and the T series go hand in hand. I should have said the Falcons image and the T series go hand in hand.Improve Falcon's image and you'll see the top line get popular.Keep Tickford rockin .

Re: Your Thoughts

Hmm... here goes..

1. Ford would want to be on the ball to take over the XR Series. I wouldn't mind if Tickford wern't involved as long as Ford put the same kind of effort into the Falcon XR name.

2. T- Series, Fte, or equivalent is needed, with the correct advertising/exposure/MERCHANDISE!!. HSV cannot be allowed to run riot in this segment alone. Look at what's happened in 10 years since HSV was launched. Leave them go any longer and you have a bigger headache than what you have now.

3. As for new colours, give me the FTR blue. Ohhh baby is that a sweet colour. XR8, full body kit, FTR blue. Yeah, Yeah!! :D :thumbup:

Question

How about the silver on Lowndes car.
Whatever happened to the old Gun Metal Grey that was all the go on the EF XR's, do they still have it?. I know of a charcoal color on the current Falcon but is it the same.
