They are really starting to make appearances everywhere here in SA. I don't know about the other states.
Although I've seen quite a lot VY's & Camries around, I think the barra has gotten the upperhand. There everywhere I look, and everytime I see one I drool, even XT's !
They look so good on the road, it's like they're integrated with the asphalt. I haven't seen any turbo's yet, but I'm sure they're around. The utes look absolutely fabulous, I saw an Phantom XR6 ute, lowered with big wheels yesterday...absolutely HORN !!!
Has anyone dragged any of the new fords yet? (yeah,yeah i know it's wrong) Are they quick ?
Anyways, I'm happy and proud to drive a Ford (always have been) and I can't wait to see (and hear) some XR8's & GT's on the road.
I have seen only 6 VY's, all but one of them SS's (3 of them on a very long trip out of town), and a whole truckload of BA's. Hooray! Must help that my dealer is in the top 5 in New Zealand, and the top seller of V8's... Ford Country! (tm)
Reckon the SS's are doing well over here as you can't get a Turbo until March, and of course we don't have the XR8 or FPV cars until even later.
Im starting to see more new fords than new holdens around my area too. On my way home from work 10 minute drive. i saw 2 BA XR6's 1 XT and only 1 SS parked on the side of the road. I hardly see any VY base models. Ive seen about 3 all up and ive seen heaps of XT's they look so good.
Here in the western subbs of melbiurne ive seen heaps of XT's and 1 in 3 XR6 is a turbo :) I have seen a P plater in a TURBO is that Legal???

I've noticed the invasion as well..... I saw 5 blueprint xr6s today and about 4 XTs... and thats just walking to the shops!!!!!!!
btw do they even make executives anymore? I didnt see one at the motorshow and even the local holden dealer has SS and Calais everywhere. Must be because base models look... well.....err.... interesting
I must say though.. the Calais has grown on me... still wouldn'y buy one
