Thumbs up Falcon sales go through the roof !

Quote from drive:

The June result will also reveal fast-improving sales for Ford's Falcon in the hard-fought battle for the top-selling slot. Almost 7000 Falcons were registered in June as Ford continued to close the gap with the top-selling Holden Commodore, which sold more than 7500.

Doesn't matter.

As long as well can sell all we make.

Which looks as though that is happening.

Top work GP!!

geezus if Falcon is within 500 units then I think we will see the falcon take back the crown.
