    I am so glad I found this video. I own a 2004 GTO and I will never get rid of it. I have a few videos it you wanna check it out. Of course it now has a LS3 418 stroker. Most comfortable car I ever owned. The seats are the most comfortable I ever owned. Wish I could get a UTE. 🤤 🤤

    I believe there was a VT type Caprice with the American V8 in it that was also sold to Americans as a police car because they were not making any rear wheel drive front engine cars and you also did show a picture of the VK Commodore but there's VH Commodores and all the way up to the Commodore that they put their Nissan engine in but you should have covered cos that was they were some beautiful cars those ones the VK with the body kits flares that was some of my favourite Commodores especially the Blue Meanie also you could mention the fact that Holden's were sold as SS Chevrolets in Africa and there's also a rotary engine put into a Holden in a Mazda type deal
    I think it's kind of unfair not to cover every model a little bit because some the H I believe was one of Holdens originally one of Holden's most popular cars and the HQ Monaro was then a major seller he didn't show those either they deserve respect all of the models that they created

    The Death of Holden can only be Blamed on Holden and GM. Politicians got fed-up with all the corporate lies 🤥 in order to get funding from the Australian government and cut off the money so GM decided to close all the Factories. In true was GM decision to shout down Holden and bad management through out the company.

      We were THIS CLOSE to having the Ute/Maloo...
      Pontiac was set to release a 2010 G8-ST (standing for Sport Truck), which had the base model LS1 and optional LSA & LSX 454... I was losing my shit and giddy like a schoolgirl and then GM axed Pontiac in 2009!
