Alan Mullaly's First Big Mistake?

Yesterday during day on of the Detroit Autoshow, Ford's CEO Allan Mullaly announced that Australian Ford Falcon, would soon be coming to an end.  Because he has focused Ford on the One Ford strategy, there is no room according to Mullaly for more than one large car platform, and that platform will be the Taurus going forward.  

For 50 years the Falcon has pounded the streets and the outback of Oz, and it's legend at The Bathurst is long and deep.  To may down under killing of the Falcon would be like killing of the Mustang in the US.  

Rising gas prices have put a dent into sales of the rear wheel drive car and Ute, but it's hard to think that "The Last Of The V8's" could be in sight.

Old Aussie Car Ads

Season two of Top Gear Australia was much MUCH better than season one, if nothing else it was addition by subtraction with Charlie Cox being replaced as the show host.  A segment that they ran in season two was old car ads from Australia.  It was funny to see that their car ads were just has cheesy and horrible as the ones here in the US.

Michael Banovsky of vLane Blog has an affinity for old quirky car ads, I figured this was right up his alley.  Have a look.
