Re: Wheels XF Falcon Article

That would awesome xcgxl!!! Those articles would really be interesting, are you able to scan them? Or will you sell the magazines?? (I know probably not, because you can't get them anymore) I am really interested in ready the comparisons for the cars of the time, and to see what they think when they were brand new. It really would help out heaps man, and I really thank you for you help! :-))

It will take awhile (after Fathers day) as I used to collect every Wheels or Motor from the release of the XD until about 4 yeaas ago. If I find the copy i'll photocopy the pages and PM you to get a postal address.

O/T. My favourite read when on a nostalga trip is the XE Ghia ESP 4.1 m4 vs an optioned VH SL/X m5....it finished by saying.."and that's the crux of this test, what the Commodore does, it does well, what the Falcon does well, it does better then the Commodore". (not exact quote)

Re: Wheels XF Falcon Article

Thanks guys!! That would be fantastic!!

This forum rules!! Everyone helps everyone out!! Its better than any other car forum on the net.

Ford enthusiasts help other Ford enthusiasts out! Its great!

my best comment from a magazine article is when they said in one how an Brock HDT car is compared to ESP Falcons, despite the Brock being a single car and the ESP a mass production car, thats how highly respected the ESP is.

Re: Wheels XF Falcon Article

I'd love a manual ESP 4.1!!! It's like the underdog of the ESPs
