too right Madeas GTHO Phase VI!
can i hear you all say GTHO Phase VI?????
The name that once was a cat amoungst the pigeons to Holden is now back and it means business!
If it was'nt for Bill Dicks, CEO of the time if I recall the EA Falcon would have been far more revolutionary. As far as I know he and his bunch of conservative pooftas killed of the 351 Clevo in the XE and was not willing to move to the newer Windsor V8 in the XF when it was released in 1985 in the Mustang there! We could have been light years ahead of Holden if we did that. Though we had to wait till 91 to get the Windsor finally in the EB1. Rumour has it that the Windsor was to be in the EA S but got canned? or words or name to that repsect. Weather the code for it was Falcon S/SS/SE/R?
and so on.
Finally where getting the Triton 4.6 donks in the AV from the states when they where released back in 1994!?
Gee whiz if Ford had its act together back then HSV (Holden's Slow Vehicles) would be the slang name for it by now. Finally the good Yank bloke Ford CEO has smelt the noise of a horny V8 like a red rag to the bull. He unleashed the 'petrol head' (from what I've heard the've been itching to did big V8's for ages) designers and engineers to win back the lost souls from the sinister scourge that is Holden. The Triton 5.8 '351' stoked HO donks bring out 350KW easy and may be in the GT or GTHO if rumours persist.
They released the stroked 5.6 which they said they "never would build". As for the V10 tarmac slayer im in no doubt that it is possible and well as a instant seller, with what we've done to a EA anything is possible! A V10 440+kw 4 door family rocket car jimminy crickets, why don't they go for mass production, instead of a limited run? :( A nice bunch of rich snobby old Fart invalid men or some rich coke snorting yuppie will get it instead. O well thats life is'nt it?
O well I can always test drive one or look or look at through a showroom window and if im ever so lucky some rich bugger will get one serviced out where i live :D
Long Live THE mighty V8- the Veeee8 ! (you know you want one you just don't have the money)
Grandpa Henry, petrolhead for life
