Haven't heard from GP or HJ lately. Have we lost them?

Oh BTW; I think Ged Bulmer (Motor Mag Editor) shouldn't ask favours of GP after saying GP doesn't know a thing about fashion etc... :eek: :rolleyes:

You made up with Bulmer yet? :p

By the way - new XR8 next week if all goes well, can't wait. It seems so long since I ordered it (May 11). And hats off to the turnaround we're seeing in sales at last. I just hope it isn't just the rental fleets driving numbers and not margins.

Regards,
Aussie!

I haven't spoken to Ged yet.I am shattered.Here was I thinking that I was looking OK but clearly I will have to up my act.Still what matters most is what we say and do.How we look at the time is secondary,but having said that I may well do the next briefing in a Tux.

I likes that first sentence.. :D

Man would you get a laugh if you did the briefing in a tux!! I'd pay good money to see the looks on the scribes faces when you walk in!! :D

Gday Geoff

Glad to see you are still here, its been quite for so long!!!

Alot going on with ford and their image at the moment, great to see, congrats

Now can YOU tell me where the REBEL idea came from?

I recently put the body kit on MY XR8, and I can assure you its been turning more heads that you would ever imagine! Someone in Ford needs a promotion!!

BTW, would be more than happy to personally show you my beast, and why you ask?, well its the only 330+kw Rebel on the Road, but I must admit I would have preferred Laminge as the name!

Shhhh.....he might actually believe you! :D

Nah, the person who primarily came up with the idea of the kit and showed it to the marketing people is well on the way up!
But that kit truly was a team effort...from engineers to marketing analysts to buyers to managers. They all did a good job.

And one of these was of course Rallyman which explains the link we got earlier than the press releases etc. It all falls into place.

GP:
I reckon Ged would wet his pants if you wore a tux and had a small badge in the button hole "For Ged". What a PR coup that would be - a head honcho with a sense of humour!
