I've just read the entire thread and it appears that the last time there was no manufacturer support for anyone was in the 1960s?

Given Ford did not want to be associated with Falcon or V8 Supercars, isn't that irrelevant? In those seasons all they did was promote "New Ranger", "New Focus", "Ecoboost" on the race cars... They were told from higher ups to not promote Falcon after all and to kill the Falcon off.

Looks kinda interesting as a road car

In this colour, that massive crease in the doors is very pronounced.
It won't be a slabsided Commodore for the liveries to be drawn on any more...

Have heard the same thing. Thankless task in many ways, being the person tasked with finding the dough.

With the former commercial dude from HSV Racing now at Porsche Motorsport, maybe Mr Mc could do some work for Ryan? (Just don't mention the loss of HRT brand)

Yes, both Chevrolet (Lacetti, Captiva, Cruze, Equinox) and Opel (Corsa, Astra, Vectra, Insignia etc) products sold as Holden have traditionally been seen as poor quality in Australia by "most pundits". The Captiva, Cruze and Astra have particularly negative reputations...

[ In Australia, Toyota and Lexus are considered by many as being of the best quality, with other Japanese brands on the next tier typically (Mazda is unusually popular in Australia, although most people know by now that Mazda diesels are total junk). ]

The local Commodore is not much better (the V6 has a whole list of common problems, primarily timing chain stretch), albeit it is forgiven for the V8 engine option.

yeah that guy has zero credibility, so whatever facts might be hidden in there get lost.

Witness his dual personality while raging about VW twin clutches and loving Fords, which are about 7 years behind VW in the same drivability problems. I nearly ran over a pedestrian in NZ in one, that continued accelerating despite a brake pedal pressed to the firewall!

Depending on the location, you may've just about earned an honorary NZ citizenship

You sure you weren't subconciously pushing on the gas instead of the brakes-being in NZ and all?
