Wow btw just saw the Maloo and FPV's! The GT looks more low and aggresive and i like the Territory very very much! The Commodore wagon is very very sweet in that trim as well! I see the Maloo got itself a few Ford S-Max style vents behind the front wheels...

lol. Mazda has been advertising it as a super little model and sending me mirrors and fashion tips and so on.<p>Feck off, send me specs, tell me how fast it goes arround corners, and send your little mirrors to hell!<p>Mazda 6 wagon will be there! Woot! So excited!<p>FPV Cobra GT is just anopther FPV (wow big deal), Terri FPV is just a Territory turbo with ricer style rims, and the Holden Ute will still be the official Bogan car 2007. But cant wait for the wagon!<p>Apparently they now have a Calais wagon :Thumbsup:<p>Stupid Ford is sticking to their panel van *cough* wagon. Stuff ford.<p>There's a new Maserati there too...

Its not really 7 brands. Fiat and Jaguar.<p>Oh and Alfa, proton, rolls royce, and mini. Who cares.<p>Maybe Citroen will be missed too. But meh.<p>Having been to both Melbourne and Sydney motor shows, They're virtually the same. Maybe the Sydney one is a touch bigger.<p>Yeah pity the XF wont be there, or the 500. Otherwise, should be pretty good!<p>Any pic requests?
