Jam3s should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Certainly a big moment in our manufacturing history. Must be a strange feeling for the staff there.

And Just Like That, The Noise Stops

And everyone goes home for the last time, never to return.

It is no more emotional to lose Holden than to lose Toyota, Ford, Mitsubishi or Nissan.

But they were the last to go, the last to keep firing.

Australia will never be the same again

Very sad indictment of successive government and business mis-management. Final down hill slide probably started by the Button Plan...

Very sad time. I feel for the workers. Hopefully in the future they can re-start manufacturing

Very sad day indeed....

I look at the industry in the UK and how it basically dried up as well, but today it has come back and there's a solid industry running.

One day, we can only hope....
