Anytime anyone tries to bring somthing up about the falcon they just get shut down. Main thing, ITS A GTO. pontiac AUS took the same body style. Fords only worried about gas. the thing that kept performance in ford is now being dissasembled(special Vehicle Team)

Umm, no......the Falcon is NOT the GTO. Pontiac's grand mistake with the GTO was 1.)Calling it the GTO....and 2.)Leading everyone to think that they had designed it from the ground up for the U.S.

The Falcon is a mid-sized 4 door RWD v-8 powered car.....and there aren't too many competitors in that segment in North America right now.....if any. GM and Dodge better pray Ford is dumb and stubborn enough not to bring it here.

umm... yes, the new falcon body style has been copied from the GTO. (not four door). the thing i love about them is, theres soo many different models, v6, 2 boss engines, and the turbo. thats why australia is selling cars

If FOMOCO had the insight to bring their aussie line over and cut the prices about $10K US they couldn't keep the cars on the lots.

Look at the Evos/WRX as an example of high dollar rice.
