    In similar news Ford isn't importing the XR6 Turbo into the states

    probably because it would be faster then a mustang, and more refined than a taurus

    It's probably due to emissions on that car. Well that motor.

    I read somewhere, probably over a year ago, that the i6 turbo, think even the i6, is going to be dropped by Ford Australia due to emissions.

    they re-engineered it to meet emissions and it will continue

    Guy I know from the golf club has a few dealerships. He's basically closing up shop because its not his main business. Anyhow, he's been fighting for insolvency for the last few months...and this week, he got a letter from them congratulating him on being selected to remain open. :hsugh:
     
  20. How the fuck is anyone NOT convinced that GM and Ford hate and insult Americans?

    That's not a GM decision anyway, because you know they'd love to see something like that; that's a Government decision, they don't want to see anything but little GM Priuses running around.
