Bogans are all licking their lips at a big pay day!!

Their clapped out, rust bucket VL’s VN’s VS’S VT’s and VE’s went from basically worthless to future classic in the space of a week!

Now that $200 VS that was a FIXER UPPER is now a $5,000 ‘future classic, appreciating asset, they don’t make em like this anymore, NEVER SEE Anything like it again in the whole world ever!’

The problem Holden had was it had ONE model that propped the WHOLE company up, when that model failed because it was shit, they alienated the last people buying them by going from locally made, RWD with a BIG FUCKOFF V8 to German made FWD sensible piddly 4 cylinder.

To put it in American terms, imagine Ford took the F-150, stopped making it in America, and imported a Honda Jazz and called it a Ford F-150
THAT is what Holden did, and that is why they failed.

It’s a real shame too, because just as Australian cars were catching up to Japanese cars of the late 80’s in features and handling, they’re all gone...

(Big fuckoff V8s are great fun though)

More and more rare rust bucket cars will be worth tonnes soon.

Computer issues plague modern cars after 10-20 years so people want an old shitbox they can keep using.
