Is it because they are worried the commos r gonna get beaten by a 6?? It seems to me trawling around there are alot of holden owners thinking of switching with the fg's. Yet ford is bringing out the most competitive car for 15 years and we have 2 threads....

I mean im no expert but surely there has to be sum1 here that is?

Us Ford people are in a minority compared to holdung lovers. We don't gloat as much because of that fact. We have more to lose if the Falcon is crap.
We just go about our business happy in the fact that we own the better car.
holdung has the much better advertising which is why they are on top of the pile.
Ford couldn't advertise and sell an icecream on a hot summers day.

I just wonder how many people will do fg seat conversion or steering wheels or try and do front end conversions etc etc or even putting an FG intake manifold onto a ba/bf

Centrelink cheques aren't big enough to cover the repayments on one.

mmm, FG typhoon..

You can only banter so much about a car that people dont have a great deal of info on (apart from listed specs). Wait till it gets into full swing and you start seeing FPV's on youtube etc..

What a dumb C***!
He'll go buy an FG Phoon, and get blown away by a modded VE. That would be funny as f**k!

Not officially yet, once the Territory Egas can get crash certified they will abandon the bf mk 3 wagon
