Holden-Ford a joint venture.
I ask people their thoughts on the following.
Given the fact that both Ford & Holden use a majority of the same component suppliers, & in certain applications, exactly the same parts.
Also the fact that Ford's "concept" vehicle the R5, and Holdens cross 8, seem to have some startling similarities.
Would you support a joint venture between holden & ford to produce a common vehicle for both the australian market, AND for possible export?
Would you view is as "sleeping with the enemy"?
Would you see it as admitting weakness & asking for help?
Or would you just ignore it hoping that it will just disappear as a bad idea?
