    It seems Ford has read my mind, my letters, or perhaps even OT. :eek3:

    The US government can't ratify the FTA quick enough, when it goes through GM and Ford will be free to start selling their Utilities here.

    A new Chevrolet El Camino, and the Ford Falcon Ute on US soil. :drool: :drool: :drool:

    www.ford.com.au/falcon - the base price for the turbo is slightly over $30k US to give you an idea of what it would cost here.

    www.ford.com.au/fairlane - for info on the Fairlane and LTD, two old nameplates we haven't seen here in awhile, and the Panther equivalents down under. The interior on the Fairlane G220 is pimp. :eek3:

    The US has a 25% tariff on imported "trucks", so Utes would currently be taxed. The US Australian free trade agreement eliminates the tariff.

    A new El Camino SS is a go if it's ratified. :cool:

    If they sell it here relatively unmolested and around $30k...

    I will buy one, over a GTO, and everything else. Believe that.

    You're right, Ford could do some work to whittle the prices down for us like GM did with the Monaro.
     
  21. that would be cool if they brought the cosworth focus over here,

    For underperforming and being discontinued, it certainly hasn't affected the Marauder's resale prices. :o
