IF THE VFII launch was anything to go by, Holden has moved on from Commodore and shifted its focus to being an importer. We all knew the time was coming, but I didnít expect the whimper that was the VFII launch. I still remember the excitement I felt as a 13-yearold when the VB Commodore launched in 1978; this recent one was more like a wake.
Gone are the days when a new Holden commanded extensive media coverage. Not this one.
Yes, the car landscape and industry in Australia has changed irrecoverably. I guess the overall lack of interest by both Holden and the media finally has me convinced, too.
