No more Opel ,sorry, I meant Commodore.

They have canned the Commodore name: https://www.whichcar...
With the pitiful sales Holden are getting across the range, I can't see them justifying the cost of the badge engineering and advertising under the Holden name.
How long before the Holden name is gone and we just have the GM brand and GM dealerships?

Good on ya Grandpa you gave the country away

To me, Holden died with the WB.
The first VB Commodore was largely an Opel with a Holden motor.

Old is good.

Remember reading a while ago that Holden spent $110 million on the first VB commodore
But still had a red 6 and trimatic from a HZ that dated back to the 1969 HG ๐Ÿค”
And thereโ€™s technology ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Since they stopped producing cars here in AUstralia. they are no longer Holden in my book. Its a name came into being on the back of an Australian made car. trying to make it anything else is just not on. I they had introduced a new model with the Opel and let commodore end with the VF i reckon the "ZB" would have been a lot better received, almost every comment you read about why people wont buy one, is based around Its not a commodore.... people power is a pwerful thing.

Yep agree there...
If Holden said at the end of VF we are heading in a new direction and not call the ZB a Commodore I think it would've made more sense.... more sales ? who knows....
