first time i had come across a falcon XR8 that was willing to have a go at the lights...

well , lets just say the good old exec got the jump and just kept pulling away from there.

I had a friend in high school who drove an early model Ford Falcon. White, with keystone slot mags. Very clean, very fast (for a 60's something car.) It would be cool to see the return of many classic old cars, like the Ford Falcon and the Chevy El Camino. But I think GM has learned that just because a car wears a classic badge (i.e. GTO), it won't necessarily sell. It's a small market segment of mid-life crisis men who respond to the car's name.

Got a link to some pics of the Falcon XR8? We don't have those in the U.S.

Ford AU's website is pretty crap - but here is an XR8 in blood orange and a GT-P (the top of the range performance model) in purple with orange stripes.

What do you mean the return of the "EL CAMINO"? What do you think that SSR is? LOL

If it was the return of the El Camino, then why wasn't it named so?

Let me take a stab at this... ummm because it is NOT the return of the El Camino.
