Discussion in 'VF Holden Commodore (2013 - 2017)' started by Ron Burgundy, Nov 8, 2019.
If they can't sell the new ones, they may as well sell the old ones. It can only improve their 'sales image'.
What will be next ………...Effigy, GTRX, Hurricane, New Torana, VT Coupe, AWD Hatchback VZ, Super Maloo ?
vc and cv8 seem decent value if ya can get them close to starting price.
Yeah. I wonder what VC will fetch
I saw the VF Calais on Wednesday. Have the VIN too. Wasn't aware it was a V8 until I looked it up and also confirmed on the sale page.
The journo in that article can't even get the model of the VE correct.
It was actually SS Z series, not SSV.
What does the auction say about Holden's (GM's) future intentions ?
Dump the history so easier to put the shutters up ?
For the most part they are nothing cars and I'm not sure why they were kept to begin with.
Yeah,but a bit of a worry that GM is chasing loose change on these models,just throw them in a shed somewhere if space is a problem,anyway time will tell.
The comments state they did it in the 80s with cars from the 60s and up as well
Nah decisions like this get made all the time. Makes no difference to GM profit, makes near-immeasurable difference to Holden profit, but Manager D from Subsection 427-D in Procuring gets to show they saved 37.2% on costs this year and makes Bonus.
^^^^ fixed it for you.
I read somewhere that part of the monies from this auction is getting donated to charity but haven’t found the link to that statement...
Either way I think Holden should donate historical cars to a museum to capture Australian car building heritage that was recently pissed away by our government
Seems a bit odd, clearing out only 8 of the presumably much bigger collection?
As above, might as well donate to a museum, especially the actually unique competition/endurance cars.
Does anyone really care about the first ever VF?
Other than the VC I could not care less about any of them...
Maybe not now, but who knows in the future. Some of the younger generation might be interested
Holden has responded to MOTOR's inquiry about the auction with a statement clarifying its reason for the auction. It says the sale of several cars is "necessary to ensure the safe storage and display" of the rest of its fleet.
LOL that reason sounds like a load of BS.

Yeah,bad time to be selling the family farm no matter how they justify it,sends a bad message at a bad time with some Journo's predicting GMH will withdraw from the Oz/NZ market completely.
How did Ordinski's VR get away with the Driving lights on the Bonnet?,i did a bit of Rallying back then and you weren't allowed extra driving lights to sit above the level of the standard headlights.
I'd like to try and count myself amongst those!
If it were a "launch edition" (like the new Alpine or others have done) where its a top spec car with special options as the first run, then maybe it would retain some attraction. However it looks like a standard evoke, same as 10000 others.
holden is gonna withdraw from the only market there in. and do waht?
Nothing, they won't exist. Dunno how much I'd want to put down ~$150k on a Corvette, regardless of any guarantees of Chevrolets being supported, not when I know how cheap new Opels were after they bailed.
