DEAD CAT BOUNCE

Herald Sun - Motoring - - COVER STORY -

THE im­pend­ing demise of the home­grown Holden Com­modore and Ford Fal­con is al­ready spik­ing re­sale val­ues.

Per­for­mance cars from the red and blue teams are show­ing stronger re­sults and this is ex­pected to con­tinue be­yond the shut­down dates of the two brands’ lo­cal fac­to­ries.

“Com­modore V8 mod­els are all ex­pected to per­form bet­ter than they have in the past as they exit the mar­ket. The same can be said for Fal­con XR8 and XR6 Turbo mod­els,” Glass’s Santo Amod­dio tells Cars­guide.

“The re­sale of the ve­hi­cles is im­prov­ing sig­nif­i­cantly and this trend is ex­pected to con­tinue once they are dis­con­tin­ued.”

Even the less-ex­otic Fal­con and Com­modore mod­els are pre­dicted to stand strong over the next five years.

“Other mod­els of Com­modore and Fal­con are not ex­pected to per­form as strongly. How­ever there will be ad­di­tional de­mand for th­ese cars as they will have some ap­peal to en­thu­si­asts.”
