    We need more Australian cars in the US. If you search this forum, you'll find many threads on the Falcon. Everyone loves it.

    I know everyone loves it, but not as many people are aware of the GT, its mostly the xr6t that has people going

    This would be like Ford's CTS-V to put it in perspective. Same type of car.

    I just got back from Australia and you see these Falcons all over the place. I also dig the ranchero-type vehicles from both Ford Australia and Holden. Those Holden Commodores are pretty bad-ass too.

    If Ford offered the XR6 turbo model in the US i would go down and buy one today. Cost be damned!

    The thing I wonder, looking at how much holden get the GTO across there (significantly less than we pay for a monaro). I wonder how much an xr6t would be.

    Its ridiculous how cheap the 04 GTO's got down to, it was equivalently less than a base model commodore with the V6. They should have just sold them as monaros over here for the same price, would have walked out the door and they wouldnt have had to ship them 1/2 way around the world.
