mad ****ing H*lden

Is i just me or is Holden trying to take over the world.

Seems that they're starting with http://www.tradingpost.com.au. It might just be me but anytime I search for something containing the string 'ford' it brings up a ****ing Holden banner instead of the search results.

NOT HAPPY!!!

eek

Karma mate. I was liurking over at LS1.com earlier and there was a Mustang banner on the top of the page! :D

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I probably wouldn't mind so much if it still showed the search results. Instead, JUST THE BANNER :(

Try it yourself.

Unfortunately that Mustang banner is showing the back of some car powered by an LS1, and stating that this is what mustangs see.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Interesting quote about the Monaro..

Quote:
Holden's marketing manager for large cars, John Elsworth, said: "That was the biggest hurdle internally. The bean-counters were wanting to justify every dollar and cent, but you simply can't measure the halo effect a car like this creates."
