Australian Cars

Like in the US, where there is a big rivalry between Ford and Chevrolet, in Australia the rivalry is between Ford and Holden (Holden a GM marque like Chevrolet).

It won’t be easy for the police to catch these, a ‘73 Ford Falcon XB and a Falcon Race Car from Hot Wheels.

  1. Yes, prompted by your article, I went off and did a bit of research, and it turns out Hot Wheels produced some Holden models too. Which is quite impressive because it is quite a niche make. I am only really familiar with Holden due to computer games.

    • Holden is like Vauxhall. A brand of GM specific to one country. Some high performance Holdens were rebadged as Vauxhalls for the UK market like the VXR8 (which was basically a Holden HSV R8 Clubsport).
