Always had Fords when I was a kid - a string of Fairmonts and latterly a company Cortina (with a Mazda 929 and a P76 and a Datsun 120Y in the middle somewhere). Bought a Camira in '86 and traded it in on a VN Commodore wagon (with air conditioning - was a prestige vehicle in New Zealand). Moved over here and bought his'n'hers VT Commodores. Realised that apart from the badges the Falcon and Commodore were pretty much interchangeable, so bought a BF Falcon on the basis of better rear suspension and a few hundred bucks better trade-in. So the whole Holden vs Ford thing goes into my "too stupid to think about" bucket, and in any case it is now a dead argument.
