roll Trivia on new Falcon release dates

I was looking thru a Bosch manual in the Falcon section and noticed that all the release dates for new model Falcon occur in september
i.e EA 09.88 to 08.91
EB 09.91 to 08.92
EB11 09.92 to 08.93
ED 09.93 to 08.94
EF 09.94 to 08.96
EL 09.96 to 08.98
AU 09.98 to 08.02
BA 09.02 to present
so based on past history we should only expect a new model from ford in the ninth month of any year.

Anyway I found it interesting

Re: Trivia on new Falcon release dates

There are preproduction EA falcons with 09/87 plates on them iirc. Test/press cars as such.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

Re: Trivia on new Falcon release dates

Most would agree that ford should have held the EA back till the 4 speed auto was ready instead of releasing with VN commodore. It would be a different world now.

Re: Trivia on new Falcon release dates

Would be a better world if the V8 was never dropped too but here we are.

We will have to wait for next september to see if these stats are right though!

Just like a Tsunami.

Re: Trivia on new Falcon release dates

I bet the Series II BA will be released not long before the release of the VZ Commo? Which is September next year.

Re: Trivia on new Falcon release dates

Sydmosho apparently gets the launch of BA2. Infact, Sydney Motor Show has always been in september/octiber as far as I know - reason for the launch date ?
