    Default Ford Australia - R.I.P.

    After 90 years of production, Ford Australia has announced that it will be shutting down its Australian factory in 2016, putting 1,200 workers out of a job.

    Rising Costs. The high Aussie dollar. Cheap imports - all brought a $600,000,000 loss over the past five years.

    I'll either have to buy a new one before 2016, or hope that my current Ford keeps on going for many more years to come.

    So if you like the Australian made Ford Falcon at the V8 Super Car race in Austin the other week - it will soon be gone.

    p.s. My son drives a Falcon, I drive a Falcon - but not a V8.
