In the back of the new Street Machine, Ford issue I saw an ad for FPV merchandice, in particular a model GT-P (Finally GT-P stuff).
I thought this would be a good little gizmo to have on my office desk.
So off to www.fpv.com.au
to order over the net but...... no FPV merchandice only a link to FPR.
So now the score for the FPV merchandice....
Sydney Motor Show 2003..... "Never heard of a GT-P we only do Ford stuff"
Melbourne Motor Show 2004..... "No GT-P stuff sorry"
Brisbane Motor Show 2004..... "No GT-P stuff, why not buy GT it is all the same"
V8 Supercars QLD Raceway 2004.... "No I don't think there will be any GT-P stuff"
Well ok, so you don't care about your customer base.....
Wandered over to one of the HSV merchandise stands and noticed 2 things:-
1) They had stuff for evey HSV model ever made.
2) They were selling shitloads of it, there were huge lineups
The only Ford stand with lineups was SBR.......
I did notice lots of family groups with Dad, Mum and the grebelers all wearing HSV theme matching clothing.
I saw bugger all FPV dressed family groups.
Come on FPV, get your act together. Do you really think that the only reason reason that HSV outsells you is because of their cars?
P.S. Donna, I know you read this stuff...
