    Default Ford vs Holden



    i found this interesting this was wrote in by xr8er

    what do you think?



    I feel the Ford vs Holden arguement is beginning to run it self of the rails. On the race track they are not BA falcons and VY commodores, they are merely chassis with 5ltr engines and exterior panels to represent the current model. On the street however is a different story. Both cars running different engines, suspension, software etc. To watch a V8 race and bag out the losing team with the cars on the street is rediculous. I feel we should all be proud of our aussie V8 production cars as they now have the ability to knock over european cars. Americans envy us, the Brits dream of owning our V8 utes and sedans. And to think these machines are heavily under powered. I feel off the track Holden and Ford should battle the international market not each other..

    very true but they are different in the chassis or why would they be looking at the controlled flor plan, they would already have it. with the rest of the car they are the same just different people make the same thing

    Its actually one of the worst cars out on the market. Im a Holden man myself, and my uncle is one of the designers that worked on the VE, and since the VE has been released it has been re-called twice for problems with a third recall on the way
