It seems strange things are going on here in NZ, theres an XR6 Turbo sitting in the local Holden dealership - for sale.

I'm a happy camper!

Probably the only way Holden dealers can make money at the moment - sell second hand BA Fords!

Holdens just jealous that Ford have a far better car, so they want some attention buy selling the 2nd hand XR6 so they don't look stupid, sitting round with fingers up their a-holes.

Holden Hopoate.

there still sellin holdens by the truckload though

according to April figures

but Ford have closed the gap, its just that Holden produce so much more cars and with the Astra, Barina and Commo doin alright

ford will cant just rely on the BA, the Focus is good

and with the Territory and Fiesta coming next year things are looking up

but Fords current capacity is way below Holdens on production
