I’m amazed with all the rev heads and bogans on the Forum nothing has been mentioned

Its sad what is happening , but Holden can only blame themselves

The only thing you would within a 1000 miles of is their utes …Ok Ford 1st efforts weren’t much better …but as they go they improve markedly

As for Supercars it will never be the seem no matter what they come up with …Red and Blue is dead

Thoughts

Summernats will never be the same!

Holden died the day they stopped production in Australia and it was only a matter of time before the brand was dropped.

Putting the Ford v Holden rivalry aside it is sad to see it come to an end. Our politicians should hang their heads in shame, they killed off manufacturing in Australia.

If you get a chance watch the Shannon’s End of Era series hosted by Shane Jacobson and if that doesn’t leave you pondering where it all went wrong or doesn’t bring a nostalgic tear to your eye then i guess you were never a car person or didn’t grow up in Australia between the 60’s through to 90’s.

Agenda 21.

I don’t know much about Agenda 21.

I just know that cars, like the tigers are a big part of my history and it’s a shame that in our country we don’t make cars anymore.

Ve’s had a problem with the timing chain and the fix is about 2k. But most cars have had problems. Some of the worst cars from a reliability perspective have a supercar badge on them and cost $100000.

VE had 9 recalls in 7 years
( just sayin)

Ok true the ve might not have been the crowning glory of Australian motoring history but my point is still valid.

Holden never evolved …
The Falcon ( Aussie built) turbo 6 was a far superior product compared to the SS commodore…
Falcon wagon became the Territory
Falcon Ute became the Ranger
And the a Falcon sedan became the Mustang …
Holden brings in a crap box Daewoo and calls it a Captiva …
Brings in a front wheel drive Opel and says “ here ya go “ … here’s the new commodore .
As for manufacturing in OZ it costs too much cause we all earn a motza .

The Australian car manufacturing industry died the day the iconic Mitsubishi Sigma hit the market.

Ice -T …colors was massive when I was a kid …loved it …
Probably classed as lame these days !?

Ice T, isn’t he the guy who plays Finn on Law & Order? Probably did better out of that than a music career.

On the music itself, I can’t really comment as I haven’t really listened to much rap or hip hop over the years. Not really my style and as Willow said, I prefer to listen to a real drummer and a band playing real instruments, not electronic backup stuff.

That said, the guys that can do drum beats and music with their mouths are pretty impressive sometimes.

Yeah Ice -T is Finn from law & order
