Australian Ford Performance Catalogue

What are peoples thoughts in regard to Ford Aus. releasing an "Annual" performance parts catalogue, listing all Australian supported goodies, similar to what they do in the US. These catalogues could provide a "breeding" ground for streetcar / racer types, who want to fly the BLUE OVAL, as well as showing that for the purist there IS an alternative to shopping elsewhere. This concept shouldn't be too difficult to accomplish considering the interchangeability of some of the Ford parts from the US/Europe - Aus markets. This would be a perfect opportunity for the "Ford merchandising" people.If the price was right I'd most certainly have to add one to my collection of Ford Bibles.
The most important thing is that the catalogue requires REAL AUSSIE content, (ie Tickford), as well as an organised merchandising approach from the Ford teams (They support/sell Ford, so why not support them in return)
What other content do people suggest?

The whole idea behind this concept is to advertise goodies created BY ford FOR fords.Anyone who doubts that ford produces some serious equipment needs to take a look in the Ford Motorsports Catalogue from the US. This is the type of content I was hinting at. Things like cold air intake systems, Gearbox upgrade goodies, Brake packages, Suspension packages(like the tickford suspension kits that I can remember being advertised somewhere quite reasonably - why shop elsewhere if you can upgrade your car with factory supplied goodies - shouldn't void manufacturers warranty either)
What other content would you guys request? Crate engines perhaps? Upgraded Clutches???
Now how do I get Geoff Polites & David Flint in on the act???:?: :?: :?:
If they've read the thread, it would be interesting to hear their thoughts regarding this idea. If they're already at the printers they can forward a copy....for proofreading, or editing:D
Aussie Pete - if you attend some of the hot rod / street machine shows around Sydney from time to time. You can often spot the US Ford Motorsport Catalogues being sold by some of the guys selling other hi - performance goodies (superchargers , valve covers etc)
