Re: Monaro to stay Australian
At least the skills in Holden have given us enough credibility that the GM rear drive platform, the Global Head of Passenger Vehicle Styling and versions of HFV6 are all Australian contributions to world-wide GM product.
All the products we have in Oz (including the Territory and Falcon) owe there origins to some overseas engineering department - just measure the spring tower positions in a BA and a XY.
Doesn't stop them being among the best value performance drives in the world including German products. We should be proud of what both companies can develop with their limited resources
68 Cougar XR7 (302W), 69 Cougar Convertible(302W), 70 Cougar XR7 Convertible (428CJ), 70 Cougar Eliminator (351 4V), 77 Cougar Villager Waggon, XY Ute (302W), XG Ute (IL6 XR6 replica)
