imho people have been assuming they knew WHAT that decision is about...
before this last week it might have been
- whether Rwd would survive besides the Mustang (or even that)
now I get the feeling it's more like
- whether to go whole hog for the GRwdP or just the minimum, Falcon & Mustang
WHAT IF it's along the lines of prioritizing, sequencing, or even just finalizing the PRODUCTION
& ALL the planning-engineering for the actual vehicles is as good as done Now?
from reading the forums, it doesn't take more than a year to re-do an assembly facility for new product, perhaps a bit less
signing on the dotted line sometime during 2011 means the first model's Job1 could happen almost in any part of 2012 or even a bit earlier...
...just something to ponder
after posting ^that^, a vague bell went off in my memory
= Project Gemini**
wish I could remember where I heard that or something like it -- don't have time to try to run it down just now
but here's a Link to an old FmcNews thread
in which I mentioned it back in May '08
as in "Mustang will be twinned with Australia's own Ford Falcon"
