For those readers that are not Australian or have never witnessed it first hand, there is a huge rivalry in Australia between two car manufacturers. Ford and Holden. In Australia there is a motor sport created especially, putting the two manufacturers up against each other. Almost every week the two different makes battle around race tracks mostly around Australia in an attempt to distinguish which is the better brand.
In my family the rivalry is particularly strong!!! We are divided pretty much down the middle. My family and the Doebs family are very passionate Holden supporters. The Jorgo’s, and the Janson’s are very passionate Ford supporters. The Vhay family is a bit of a split, with different members of the family owning a variety of Holden and Fords over the years.
This means there is always fireworks at our family gatherings!!! Of course we can never agree which is the better vehicle, and I am pretty sure this will never happen.
As I said I am a Holden supporter, but I also have a confession to make. Since coming to Germany I have been driving around in Britty’s car. It is, that’s right, you guessed it, a bloody Ford!! Check out the photos.
I still maintain that in Australia I am a true Holden support, and in most cases I doubt I will ever buy a Ford. I must admit that Fords these days do look a lot better than they use to, and maybe they have caught up a little. Yes Fords have been performing well over the last few seasons of V8 Super Cars (these are not the typical Fords you see in Europe), but I still think they don’t look as good.
Here are a few pictures of Holden and Fords you see in Australia. You can see the Holdens look a lot better. 🙂
