    In recent years the tribalism is mostly Falcon/Commodore rather than Ford/Holden so with the demise of the former for many there will not the previous prejudice in buying determination.

    And to this its never good for one brand to have market monopoly.

    On road aim is less than 90k.

    The current generation Camaro is said to be a better car, one of the reasons allegedly Ford is bring forward S650.

    On top of all that with competition in the market, once Camaro becomes factory rhd compliant, look to the delay in getting here to be improved. None of this waiting a year to be current BS.

    You can see us heading towards a Camaro v Mustang culture just as the case is in the states.

    Lets see Ford stay out of motorsport then.

    Word is walkingshaw want to race Camaro and are watching carefully what goes on with Mustang. If that proves too hard then it will make traditional tribalism much harder.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    I can see the future in Supercars now. All the non factory-backed teams running Mustangs and Camaro's leaving only Triple 8 the factory Holden team running the only Opel. Nissan is long gone.

    What's that saying? The more things change....

    So the leap isnt as hard to take.
    Yep, not a Ford badge in sight on Mustangs and it's been that way for years for a very good reason.
    Broader appeal because of the name, not the brand....how refreshing to break through old tribalism.

    In a funny way, perhaps the Camaro can do the same for team red.
