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.

Ford Flex Follow Up

Back in March when we had the Ford Flex in for review, out major issue with it was it's lack of power, and stated at the time that the EcoBoost motor would probably answer that. Well, yesterday, we had a chance to try it out. Thanks to the Mark and Joe at the Movement Design Bureau we attended Ford's 2010 Model Year Event. There, we had an opportunity to drive the EcoBoost Flex on the high speed track at the Dearborn test track. Here is the video of that.

Five Days With The Ford Fusion Hybrid

When we drove the Fusion Hybrid back from DC, we liked the car very much as you can see from out earlier review, the question was how would it be on a day in and day out basis.  While five days isn't very long, driving it more surface streets, running errands and such gave us a clear view.  Have a look.

Ford Focus RS

Since this car was announced last year, enthusiasts all over the US have been clamoring for The Blue Oval to drop the achient, hideously styled Focus currently on sale in North America, and bring the current and award winning EU model over to replace it.  More so when the 305HP RS version was released.  You CAN get this car, kind of, the Volvo C30 and the new Mazda 3 are all built on this chassis, but non comes with this beast of a motor.  Top Gear got their hands on it for this weeks show!
