grev, have you seen the Australian version of 'Top Gear' ? Its even more tilted toward hairy-chested V8 muscle cars than the other editions, and they spend plenty of time on those old working class favorites, the Commode-door and Falc-hoon. You can imagine my surprise when I tuned in to see two fashionably dressed Asians in the studio audience - one was (gasp !) female - leading me to wonder exactly what they thought happened in a large shed emblazoned with 'Top Gear'. I've come to the conclusion that they thought it was a factory outlet for some seriously expensive clothes - one can only imagine what they thought of the sequence where the lads hooked a V8 up to a Hills Hoist and proceeded to spray the audience with water and wet clothing.
Way before the Commodore, Holden built real cars for real men.
