    1. "New" FGX still available?

      I saw a claim in another forum that there are still final Falcons available, sitting in a dusty Ford parking lot somewhere for a year.... I find that hard to believe. If there are any, I presume they are like base model with 4-cylinder donks and some ****ty color.
