ANSWERS TO ALL THREE QUESTIONS ARE BELOW:









Q1. A significant reason for the Northern Territory Government removing the existing 'no blanket speed limits outside major towns' in January 2007 was to reduce road fatalies in the Territory.

Has this reduction in road fatalities been achieved ?

A. Prior to the speed limit fatalities in the Northern Territory were 55 (in 2005) and 44 (in 2006). In 2007 following the introduction of rural speed limits of 110 km/h or 130 km/h they rose to 57 (2007) and then again to 75 (in 2008) before falling to 31 in 2009.

There were 50 Road fatalities in 2010, 45 in 2011, 49 in 2012, 37 in 2013 and 39 in 2014.

Q2. In what year did Ford introduce Electronic Fuel Injected engines to the Falcon, Fairlane and LTD range.

A. 1983

Q3. Australian assembly (and sales) of the Dodge Phoenix models commenced in 1960.

For how many years did Chrysler Australia continue building this model ?

A. The Dodge Phoenix was produced by Chrysler Australia from 1960 to 1973.

The Phoenix was introduced in 1960 as an Australian assembled version of the American Dodge Dart positioned above the locally developed Chrysler Royal as Chrysler Australia’s luxury model.

It borrowed its name from the top Dart model, the Dodge Dart Phoenix, but unlike its American namesake it was offered only as a four door sedan and only with a 318 cubic inch V8 engine.

The Phoenix was subsequently restyled each year in line with revisions to American Dodge models (initially the Dart and latter the Polara) until a change of policy for 1965 saw the Phoenix based on the American Plymouth Fury for the first time. Like the 1965 Fury, this model featured vertically stacked headlights.

A four door hardtop body style joined the sedan in 1967 fitted with a 383 cubic inch V8 engine whilst the sedan continued with the smaller 318 cubic inch V8.

The two body styles continued to be offered until the final Australian Phoenix was built in 1973.[img][/img]
