I had no idea the Ford Falcon was that good looking. I need to move to Australia. The only Falcon I remember are the rust buckets from the late 60s. Ford needs to bring that thing stateside as an alternative to the boring Mustangs that are a dime a dozen.
Well there is a very very slim chance of that happening, I was reading Wikipedia article for the Falcon
and it is suggesting that the 2008 Falcon will also be made in left-hand drive and that since apparently Ford are closing down (or have closed down) the plant that produces the Crown Vic, the Aussie Falcon *might* (and a I stress might, as in they might just build the Crown Vic elsewhere) take its place, but this is pure speculation. So maybe in the future you might see some Falcon XR (most likely either a XR8 or XR6 Turbo) police vehicles or Falcon XT/Fairlane Taxis cruising North America and privately owned ones too
and if Ford do bring the Falcon to North America they should also bring the FPV vehicles (specifically the GT, GT-P and F6 Typhoon) as well.
Why get a Mustang if you could get this (see below)?
(no offense to the Mustang fans out there, I think it's a great car, Ford brought it to Australia for a while but it was pulled due to lack of interest)
I probally should stop filling a Holden
thread with Ford stuff now
...oddly enough I'm a Holden man myself, but I have to admit the BA/BF Falcons are awesome cars
ok I'll stop it now
