What's the most popular brand in Australia????

Ok guys take a guess whats actually the most popular car brand on autralian roads.

Noooo it's not Toyota or Hold'en it. Yep you guessed it it's actually Ford. Taken from The Sun Herald Jan 27th 2002, the last census 2001 showed that Ford has a 21%, Holden 19% and Toyota 17%. Contrasting that to back at 1971 where Holden led by a mile at 37%, Ford 18% and Toyota at a mere 3.6%.

Just an interesting article i thought, that despite holden leading in sales ford is still the most popular car on the road adn particular the falcon.
