RESPECT

Charlie, 11, Melbourne, Vic

I THINK that, out of respect, the Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore replacements should not be named Falcon and Commodore. This is because from the day they were released, Falcon and Commodore have been the names of Australian cars, not imported vehicles.

Thanks for a great magazine.

Ed’s note: Great having a bright young reader on board, Charlie.

We appreciate the sentiment and your love for two brands that have defined the local car scene for so many decades. It would be remiss of us, however, not to point out that both these famous ‘Australian’ nameplates originated overseas in the 1960s – Falcon in America and Commodore in Germany, as an Opel.
