Australia Ford cars

Have any of you guys checked out Ford's in Australia? They are freakin SWEET. 5.4's in a Crown Vic, 4.0L straight 6 with a turbo, the crazyness just goes on. Check them out. OO, a 5 cylinder turbo Focus. Ford would be out of the hole if they made these available in the US.

Drool over these.

The Falcon comes with a V-8 option. I like the looks of that bad boy. Ute MkII I think it was...

I would compare the GTP with a Mustang. 390KW's. It used to carry a base pushrod 302 ( 5.0 ) as its engine till.. 2005? ( 2006? ). I think Ford should take a note from Pontiac ( aka/GTP ) and instead of closing a plant, retool and make a GT-P domestically. They have no 4door ' sports ' sedan outside of the Lincon ' MK ' series. The 500 is a joke ( they can rename it all they want ). I have seen all of maybe 3 ' fusion ' cars in my whole area.

Outside of the Mustang, theres not really any ' exciting ' vehicals on the market right now.

As sweet as some of those cars are, I just want to know how to "Tonk a Kiwi" I'd love to find a way to throw that out in a conversation one day.
