Guys, it just my opinion but here it is.

No crap, there is no such thing as holden vs ford anymore. Anyone that would kill an XC 2 door because it's a Ford and not a Holden doesn't deserve to have an old AUSSIE car.

In the age of RICE and plastic, we should all stick together with our Ford and Hemi brothers and sisters and appreciate all things AUSSIE. In the coming years when Holden and Ford both stuggle even more to produce Falcoons and Crumpledoors in Australia we will be forced to call imported cars our own (Taurus's and Opels probably).

I am a Ford man at heart but still love my old Holdens / Fords / Hemis. Basically, anything built prior to 1979 is a real car in my eyes.

Just to conclude, who can tell the difference between holden and ford in the V8 [Naughty Pottyword]cars anyway. They all look the same and go the same. That series sux. Bring back the days of the production cars where the driver had to actually drive the car.

Nuff said.

In new car terms the biggest player now is Toyota, watch this year & see what happens with sales figures. Also the coming release of things like the TRD supercharged Aurion will liven things up a bit more.

I lean towards holdens as IMHO, they are truly Aussie in desighn as opposed to fords. IE:-early falcons are an amaerican desighn etc. But I love anything that was built here, and has a bit of the OZ engiuity in it!! I think that when I'm finished with the cooks 57 morris minor, I will go for an old fc--ek or a Chevy ,something different! I have owned a heap of fords, the last one worth a mention was a Faker XY Ute with all the GT fruit -- Including the 9 inch 351, Top-loader, 4v heads etc. I look back in anger because it was when they were a dime a dozen!
Your totally right in regards to the so called production cars/ bathurst etc. I think its all a corporate race these days. The car with the most stickers wins!

TELL SOMEONE WHO CARES

You are right on the money my friend. I agree totally.

I think you'll find most people do. The 'Dead ford is a good Ford' morons have almost all disappeared these days.

Personally I like any classic car, even Japanese ones. I appreciate engineering and design and the way it relates to certain eras and times in history. Doesn't matter what the nationality of the people that put it together.

My gauge for 'classic' would be -

Aussie / Yank / Pommie - pre 1975
Japanese & European - pre 1970
The rest of the world - pre 1970
Any make of motorbike - pre 1960

Very true about the Holden and Ford rivalry dying out. 10 years ago there was almost no import scene in Australia, now due to globalisation and changing preferences a lot more imports, Jap and Euro, have made their way over to Australia, which has seen Ford and Holden lovers set their differences aside :P

I'm a Jap car lover myself, particularly Nissan. And there is definitely a huge rivalry between jap and oz spec cars. However I'm open minded love any good car, including Holdens. Any well kept Torana, Monaro, H series etc. has my respect. What I don't like are the bunky thrashers with giant metal mulisha stickers doing burnouts outside McDonalds, but who does?

Unfortunately the import/muscle rivalry is a dirty one. At last year's MV my car club copped a lot of "take your jap [Naughty Pottyword] back home" etc etc, but hopefully with time more muscle lovers can learn to appreciate a nice import too.

Its good to hear that you belive that not everybody who drives a muscle car is a meat head. Jap and [Naughty Pottyword] dont always go in the same sentence.

Makes sense mate but your posts are very tricky to read.

Maybe you need to run a spell checker over your work.

Dunno, just bugs me [Naughty Pottyword] is harder to understand. :P

old fords were built in the same place, and by the same people, as early holdens. in Australia, by Australians.

i'd sooner drive a pre xd falcon than my missus's VT. too much bling. windows were ment to be wound up by hand, doors unlocked with keys, and if it has a quarter glass even better.

but i'll still stir a ford fan, just because it would be unaustralian, not to.

nobody.

Poor Dave ay? He camping in a tent ?
Gotta love them 2 door Valiants, i just got back from Whyalla and had a little memory lane thing coz my mate Johnny has bought my old VG Pacer coupe (265 4 speed) and is giving it a rebuild . Geez i loved that rocket but got fed up with the torsion bar setup. If life and the garage wasn't so full of [Naughty Pottyword] to do, I'd definately be yearning for another. I wanted to try sticking a holden front end under one of them. 265 into the Munro will satisfy me desires i hope.
