If they hit the ground hard enough, would it make them Thunderbirds?

Lulz. I always snickered a little when the guys at crownvic.net were crying that the Falcon should be Ford's panther replacement because the new "FAIL-body" and "FAIL-wheel drive" Taurus sucks. :violin:

I wonder how long before this news will show up over there.:food-snacking:

Its unfortunate that this car didn't make it here. Over its five decade span, they sold three million of them which is impressive for a sparsely populated island nation. The "one ford" global product plan unfortunately means that for the sake of operational efficiency, a few winners have to go.

GM gets this huge (for Australia) market to itself.
