Do one on Ford Australia. Like holden they made cars specifically for Australia. Some say they were better cars than holden but it's an age old debate.

I’m Ford at heart, but all Turd-runners are damn cool..... The Armstrong 500 @ 5:12 was 500 Miles and held at Phillip Island. I think it went to Bathurst in ‘63. And I’m not sure if I should be offended by “the accent”.

Aussie Moto Kid Better make it a slug, .410 shot would probably mutilate you and leave you alive and miserable. Seriously, I thought I'd heard Aussies call them 'Commos', but I'm an American who's never been there and as such very likely mistaken.

Donut Media needs to do an 'Up to Speed' on Ford Falcons in Australia. The Holden (Commodore) competition. 'Like the Mustang is to the Camaro is in America' Ps. Ford made an in line 6cyl (barra) which goes down as one of best in line 6's along side 2jz and the rb's, and the turbo model hands down puts shame to an LS V8. I'll be waiting and watching for the video 😁👌

My dad had a loaded Kingswood wagon in the early 80's,'radial tuned suspension' red interior with a great front bench seat,(cruising was different in those days) wind down back window with a drop-down tailgate like a pick-up,lotsa and lotsa space and literally bullet-proof,my first experience with a smooth sailing big 'luxury car' as I wasn't around in my dad's heydays with all the big US offerings of the earlier decades,I only heard about those days. I eventually had it as a hand-me-down when I got my permit in 88,he refurbished it in it's original 'silver-grey' by hi old friend's body-shop,it was like a second delivery when we went to pick it up,even with new asphalt rust-proofing undercoat. It always brought me home in dignity with it's six cylinders and and 'Statesman' like presence,none of my friends had a big cylinder car with two tail-pipes and a gargle!! (thanks to some nifty muffler work). I eventually sold it,yet another car I regret parting with during the years,along with a V8 Land-Rover swb, Mercedes 123 280TE and an EvoVII!! Kingswoods and Statesmans gave us the Aussie experience thousands of miles away and we felt included,we also had the Commodore/'common-dog' lol, and currently have some later model police car ones that seem to have come through a Gov't to Gov't arrangement as the dealer discontinued the brand a long time ago ,also a couple people have brought in a few of the newer HSV V8 utes and sedans....but yeah Holden was one of those youthful kinda companies that listened to it's customers and made them feel good with some treat or the other and plenty room to make it your own..There are even a couple of those old priceless Monaros here,hope Holden can reignite those old days once again where anything was possible, with the added value for money and a little extra for less that's associated with Holden..Long live the brand..

The ute was a Ford Australia concept in response to a lady who wanted a vehicle that she could "take the pigs to market, but she could also drive to church on Sunday" (paraphrased).

Holden were (as usual) "optimistic" with the GTS's power figures - using different dyno methods to Ford. The Falcon is proven to make more power at the wheels (there's a dyno comparison on BRvid). That being said, it sucks that both Holden and Ford started making such truly world-class cars, and then shut up shop.
