Whats HSV up to...???

Just around the corner from work, off silverwater road in Sydney is a dyno tuning shop...sitting out the front today, was the Generals finest. One mint condition HSV painted some sort of midnight blue/black with silver HSV logo's down the side. Great looking side skirts, and...........wait a minute, a rear spoiler of the new Tickford AV. (no kidding) Now, Im not one to bag Holden, (smirk, chuffle, gwaffaw)...but I gotta say this looked better on the Holden than on the Ford.

and since when was the 250-255kw mark trademarked to holden? hehe

look at the senator grille! what a rip-off! it's a bloody AU ute grille which has been blown up, and stuck on a commodore! and the new angular look? uhm, sorry, ford had that a WHILE back!

the truth is, and you have to accept this whether you like it or now, holden can't design anything original! name one original car holden designed in-house in the last 20 years!

I think I saw that car too.

I saw a dark VT/VX with silver holden stickers down the side and on the front of the bonnet 2 days ago going past west ryde shops.

um not sure I said any of that

here something from autoweek though

When Bob Lutz came on board at General Motors two months ago, he looked around for a company for GM to emulate. He found one, not in the ranks of the competition, but within GM’s far-flung worldwide operations, embodied in none other than Australia’s Holden.

“It’s just a bunch of guys who all like cars, working together very intimately and doing unbelievable new products for almost no money,” says Lutz. “It’s the most successful GM division in the world.”

oh, i don't doubt that holden employees love their cars, but then again, so do ford employees... but that's beside the point.

what you said was:

"and ye opposition shall match current power level versions"

well of course... it's called competition. it's different to plagiarism. :D i stil claim, holden doesn't design cars. the most original designs holden has produced with the commodore are the Statesman and the Ute!

don't mind me, i'm a dedicated commodore hate! :)
