    General Motors today announced the saddening news that it will shut down Holden, its Australian car division, after 165 years in business. Holden already stopped producing its own cars back in 2017, being relegated to selling rebadged versions of other GM models like the Chevrolet Equinox. Throughout the company's many decades in business, it managed to produce some legendary cars. Only a small handful of Holden models were ever offered in the United States but some were so heralded, tales of their greatness spread even in the pre-internet days. Here are a few of our favorites.

    So this guy basically says the VE and VF were the best ones because he lives in the US and hasnt seen or driven anything else or even heard of a
    Torana A9X
    Torana XU1
    The Original MOnaro GTS
    Pretty much every SS Commodore from the VH onwards

    HDT Brock specials

    And those are just the performance cars

    Brocks A9X that won Bathurst by 6 laps when Brock , just to show that he could , broke the lap record on the last lap

    We just dont lose all the cars that might be built in the future we lose any new racing legends like that

    It's like a knife in the heart and stories like this from neville nobodies who know stuff all about the brand don't help
    Who the hell approved this abomination? Hidden Content

    I see your point about the "legend"

    but would agree the VF IS THE BEST car GM ever built in TODAY'S TIME and that "on paper" look is ONE accurate way to look at it
    I would say "big picture" the VF is BETTER then the new VETTE when you LOOK at all the different "jobs" it fulfilled WELL
