    I dont own a Ford anymore...

    Sold my GT today to a guy who restores cars. I am now without a Ford for the first time in 15yrs, Ive ended up with 5 VW's instead.

    And I am fine with it.

    Dont know if it is just me or not, but the love just isnt there for me anymore. I am actually happy I don't have to deal with dumbshits who think they know more about my car than I do (or did), and I havent really enjoyed being a Ford owner since the glory days of BA's. My FG was fun, but it was stale, my AU's were awesome and I'll probably buy another one day, but for now I am happy without the pissing contest between GT owners, the stories of 'my mates dads uncles brothers sisters boyfriend' who owned a one off super special secret turbo V8 4wd XR8, and the general attitude towards it.

    In contrast, my VW's I enjoy, I am starting to like them more and more, are they the same as the Fords? No, of course not. The most involvement I have in that community is a facebook page about Amaroks, I spend more time cleaning the Passat than driving it but I like it once it's done. Part of that is me moving into a different stage of my life (I'm a dad now, running 2 businesses, uni degree almost done and spare time is a thing of the past), but part of it is just wanting something different. Never ever thought I would not have a Ford V8 in the shed, well after Friday I dont.

    Driving my cars as much as I can
    Good on you Austin.
    Nothing ever stays the same mate for those with open minds.
    I can understand your mind set but you shouldn't have allowed it getting into your head mate - its the bogan mindset which is quite small minded, water off a ducks back mate.
    If your a car guy like most of us here you get close to what hit the spot especially a local car such as Falcon, doesn't mean it has to be forever just as no more manufacturing.
    Enjoy to VW's.

    Big mistake. VW lied and manipulated there cars computers so they would pass smog test and were fined 1.6 billion. I wouldn't trust em as far as I could throw em. Good luck. Youl need it.
