So what happens to spare parts and service and warranty etc. Is it a good time to buy or will the prices skyrocket now?

The life support plug has been finally pulled.
This bit ………… GM and Great Wall Motors sign binding term sheet for sale of Thailand manufacturing plant
I'm surprised they didn't just slap a Holden badge on a Great Wally and business as usual in a ever decreasing circle.

There could be a business chance for some enterprising company to take over the manufacture and import of replacement parts and panels.
There could be a 20 year life to such a business.

No way, I thought Motors Launceston had very few Holden badged vehicles for a reason. I think they may have known, unless they had just planned to stop selling Holden on their own accord. Yep gen spares will be a nightmare to get soon, I suspect. I'd better hurry up and buy the tailshaft bearing i had on my list, as aftermarket ones a junk. Need to figue out what else i need in the shed that needs to be gen before there is no gen options.
