They're are no GT haters... even Holden supporters respect the GT name..
Its an Australia muscle car icon, and the new BA GT is no exception. Its a true performer...
The MINOR problem with a few people is that it looks too much like an XR8 to them.. these are the people that haven't even seen the XR8 in real life to compare.
Once everyone starts seeing them on the roads (and they get familiar to the XR8 aswell) they will notice the differences and except the GT for what it is.
Personally, I'm hoping they 2 tone the bonnet, in series 2 if its too late (not that it is a major thing). Either way, there is going to be a future models to add certain things. Just like the XR GT was a 'naked' GT to the XW, XY GT's.
I absolutely love the GT and the colour range !!!!! I'll have one in Congo Green thanks!

But seriously, GT does look the goods...remember fellas it is only supposed to be, and always was a finely tuned, souped up, perfected Falcon road muncher.
If I remember correctly the Phase 5 had splitters on the front guards like the HDT Commodore, it also had a roof wing, a bonnet scoop, front splitter and rear wing.
The kit was made by Phase Auto's in Melbourne (correct me if I'm wrong) At the time I thought it was extremely cool but, now that I am older, I am no longer a fan of body kit add ons.
The only Ford that I have seen from that era that stills looks incredibly tuff, was Dick Johnsons Tru Blu XD and the Greens Tuff XE. The flares, rear wing and front air dam suited the car perfectly and the car still looks fantastic alongside todays model cars. I think this is because the wheel/tyre combo suited it, however to it would require an engineers report to have wheels that big now on an XD/XE.
