    Bathurst is nearing the end as i type, so i thought i might ask who your manufacturer of choice is. Do you prefer Holden (GM) or Ford?

    Aussies, the first two poll options are for you.
    For those who just so happen to reside outside of our wide brown land, please select one of the last two options.

    I'm really not that fussed either way but I'll go with Holden seeing as I currently drive one.

    Voted Ford - that's what we have at the moment, but I've owned more Holdens (3) than Fords (2) if I exclude the rebadged Mazda.

    Edit: That got me thinking ... from the beginning it would be Fiat 850S, Fiat 500, Fiat 128, Peugeot 403, Holden EK PV, Ford Cortina 250, Chevrolet Caprice Classic Landau, Holden EK, Chrysler Valiant VK, Ford Telstar/Mazda 626, Peugeot 504 Diesel, Holden VR, Mitsubishi Magna, Volkswagen Caravelle, Holden VN (Police model), Volvo 240 Estate, Ford AU II. On two wheels ... Honda SL125, CB350/4, CB400/4, Benelli 125, Honda CB400/2, Ducati 750 Sport (pre-desmo - the yellow solo job), Honda XL175

    Ford must be a lot cooler down under. In the States their cars tend to be kind of crummy in the quality department.

    I may not be from Oz, but I'm definitely a Holden person.

    You need a 5th option: "I'd rather walk than drive GM or Ford." That's what I would choose. As far as Holden goes I've never driven one so I can't comment on them.

    I'd love a Holden. Is Skaifey still driving for them? Been a while since I watched any V8s. If I was to buy anything it would have to be a Holden Monaro, can buy them in the UK now as well. Yummy.

    Yeah, Skaife's still a Holden man. :cool:

    Monaro is old news. We're on a totally new platform now. :D

    Actually that was the old VZ model. There aren't any VE (new) racing V8 Supercars yet. I still can't believe what happened there. It's always been such a safe sport.
