    But Richmond are convinced they need to go all tech savy and hipster because Motorsport/Blokey/V8 doesn't work.....




    My head hurts.
    Yeah and passing on Mondeo Sport with TTV6 was IMO opportunity lost
    especially if there's delivery gaps in Mustang supply........

    The excuse offered by Ford that XR6T buyers wouldn't buy it now seems so lame after the
    strong embrace given to the GT Mustang by enthusiasts...Sure TTV6 Mondeo is not and
    probably never will be a direct replacement for the mighty XR6T but without trying,
    we will never know what actual sales could have been..

    One thing is for sure, if Ford tries to sell white goods like Toyota or Hyundai, they will get killed.
    errr, are getting killed...

    MASSIVE opportunity lost.

    And this fear of "blokey" image hurting them has backfired because i see heaps of Women in GT Mustangs and Focus RS's.
    My Falcon family heritage: XY V8 Falcon 500, XYGT, XBGT, XC 351 GS, XD 4.1 Spack, EF wagon, AU Wagon, AU2 Wagon, AU2 XR8, BA XR8, BF XR8, FG XR6, Lucky last: Sprint 8. Oh wait, AU3 XLS Marlin Ute!

    See, that right there is an example of how diverse the buyer pool is.

    I'm still filthy about Taurus being developed in Geelong for China and no RHD..but I digress..
