Well, it's been a while now

And I'd like to see what people think of the FPV name change. It's been given time to allow people to stew over it now, so I'd like to know what you guys honestly think about it. :s5

No need to be so sensitive - I was just joking (in one of those moods I guess )

I was getting sick of it anyway.

So what do you think? I think it would have been better if they kept the Tickford name.

I would have liked Tickford to stay. Dunno why though. Maybe its the thought that the GT would've been tickford tweaked. I think the tickford image was a good one, and the wings look cool.

Same for me, I really think Tickford should have stayed, ok they didn't do much for the first few years but since AU3 onwords it was really starting to get better and with the range of tricked up Falcons they're putting out now, would have really hit the nail on the head and put Tickford well and trully where it should've been, on solid ground.

FPV is the right name. It's easier to translate to FPR - just like HSV becomes HRT. Tickford is the heritage, but FPV is the future. Now if only they could build the cars a bit quicker - at least Tickford were good at that!

While i think the tickford was awesome, I really think that Tickford GT woulda been detramental to the GT Name.

FPV however keep's it strictly in line with it's Ford heritage, not to mention FPV have a nice agressive logo.
