no idea why, but running 24hours a day is a fair commitment.

This is the long rumoured 3rd shift. It has always been going to happen as production capacity is needed. The Pontiac program is a part of it, but not the main reason. Exports to M.E. and Aust. sales are the major reasons.

No Way, Holden has committed quite heavily in new plant and equipment for the new AWD program and upcoming VZ.
