Thought that someone would like to know I spoke to a number of Ford Dealers in Melbourne last week (17/6/2020) trying to obtain a quote on a new Ford Ranger for a Gold Card TPI customer. I’m a new car broker based in Queensland, but looking after customers in New
Volkswagen And Ford Officially Sign Off On Landmark Partnership Agreement I found this story on the Ford Authority News website – there’s a link at the end if you’d like to sign up. But my question is this. What is the child of a Ford + Volkswagen partnership really look
If you have to ask how much, arguably you can’t afford it. Shown at the Chicago auto show, the Ford GT Liquid Carbon edition is only available in LH drive and will cost you circa $1,000,000. But you’d better be quick as only 12 of these highly desirable twin-turbo V6
Honestly, I can’t wait to see the Ford v Ferrari movie to be released tomorrow November 14th. A good friend and I will see Ford v Ferrari next week – we’re both car nuts and after seeing Senna I’m expecting great things. Entertainment reporter Kevin Mccarthy interviewed Matt Damon
I went to see Ad Astra on the weekend, but of more importance was the trailer for Ford v Ferrari due for release in November this year. Ad Astra? yea, not bad, not good. I’ve taken the following article from Wikipedia. The last ‘motorsport’ movie I saw was Senna and
Hi there, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with an exciting release courtesy of Wheels Mag. 2021 Ford Ranger engine details revealed. Most of you youngsters won’t remember the time when the Australian Government essentially killed off the muscle car when they prevented the development of the GTHO Phase 4 Falcon.
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with yesterday’s press release from Ford Motor Company announcing the return of the 2020 Ford Fiesta ST to Australia. Now, first things first. I am NOT a fan of Ford’s passenger range, even though that’s where I started in the motor industry in 1978.
I subscribe to www.fordauthority.com, a website that leaks out some of the interesting information from Ford US. I recently was able to find pictures of the 2020 Ford Mustang for a customer. Ford Authority’s Shane McGlaun presented a story of the ‘still under wraps’ Ford F150 EV. Will Ford’s Electric
A famous man once said: “You only get one chance to create a good first impression” and this is my first impression on the new Ford Endura Trend AWD SUV I’ve just taken my Ford Cobra into Torque Ford at North Lakes for a full oil change – engine, gearbox,
Hello there – Bob Aldons, The Car Guy on this beautiful Friday in Redcliffe, Queensland, down under in Australia. Thomas Holland from Throttle House gets to drive some really cool cars.This week, he’s in the 2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible. If you remember, he wasn’t very complimentary of the EcoBoost version (no surprise there), so let’s see what he thinks about the 5.0 V8.
Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!
I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.
I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
