Hmm what if??..
Holden had designed and marketed the AU?
Do you think it would of sold any better or worse? It popped inot my head while at work today. Could anything had been done differently (other than a re-design)?
Personally, for some stupid reason the "culture" of Australians (and most people I guess) is to go with the winner. The underdog thing is BS. Surely V8Supercars doesn't weigh that much on the minds on your typcial Aussie family. I think it would had done better if Holden made it, mainly because of superior marketing (ford has picked up its game), and secondly because alot of Holden buyers go for the badge no matter what.
BTW, I love the AU, and dont turn it into a holden bashing thread please... :)
