    Holden to cease manufacturing operations in Australia by 2017

    General Motors announces it will close Holden Adelaide operations in 2017

    I guess the bogans down under will have to drive something else through the Hungry Jack's drive through soon.

    Noooo! The Holden is sacred! I learnt to drive in a Holden Kingswood, and other stuff... well, you could fit a double mattress in the back of a Holden Station Wagon...

    When OH and I moved back in 2004 for a year, he had to buy a Commodore just for the sound. He wanted to import one back to the UK...until I put my foot down, one motorbike following us around the world was enough.

    and the australian taxpayer breathes a sigh of relief that the government support of billions will end at last (hopefully will help ease inflation also)
