    Can confirm part of the end of the video - Holden Acadia is built right here in Spring Hill, Tennessee alongside the GMC Acadia (no way, really?!?!), Cadillac XT-5, and Cadillac XT-6. Even though they are essentially a sticker swap of the GMC version I actually think the Holden version looks incredible!

    Holden wanted to End off the non-HSV Commodore by fitting one with an LS3 containing 304 Kw (407 Hp) on a Performance-Oriented, 95-98 Octane Sedan: The VF2 SSV Redline. I know this because my mother has one in Blue.

    Very good video, the "ute" was actually first designed far earlier by ford. And it was a car to take pigs to market during the week and nice enough for church on sundays, do one on the aussie ford falcons as they had alot going for them also (fastest production 4 door in the world at one point)

    Many mistakes. Bathurst was never 500ks it was 500 miles until the end of 1972 then it became 1000ks. The A9X Torana was a Holden 308 CID making 400BHP in race trim with a super T10 and ten bolt Holden diff it totally dominated touring car racing through out 78 and 79. winning Bathurst 78 by 1 lap then winning Bathurst 79 by 6 laps or 37 ks starting from poll leading every single lap of the race with Peter Brock setting the fastest lap time on the last lap and incase your wondering our races here are a standing start not rolling start. Its Walkinshaw not Wilkenshaw. The VL did get the Nissan 6 but it also got the Holden 308 redeveloped for unleaded fuel. As for the 3rd gen Commodore / Monaro the sketch was based on the VT not VX and that's what the concept car was but by the time they put it in to production the VT was replaced by the VX
