Re: November Sales (03)

Does that new crewman count for ute sale's for Holden, if so that could be an advantage for them, because there is a hell of alot of them getting around Bendigo of late.

Re: November Sales (03)

Nothing to worry about in regards to the large car segment, there isn't much Ford can do about this right now. I think they need to look closely at what they can do with the struggling Focus.

Re: November Sales (03)

when i sit down and think about it

ford cart really take the v8 supercar win to the full

due 2 the supply and demand problem

every falcon been built is been sold but the problem is that the coustomers that have to wait just go down the road to holden

as geoff said its not a problem as long as ford sell all the falcon thay can build

but to me it is a problem as all i see and here is holden is no1

when we all know the falcon is a much better car
but i carnt it carnt be shown as so because of supply problems

holden know there only ontop becouse of there 3erd shift

but thay sure rub it in in others ways

I agree

1) Review the stupid pricing structure
2) Get FPV invovled with a small bolt on turbo!
