The Oc­to­ber edi­tion asked whether the Ger­man in­vader is wor­thy of the Com­modore badge. My first Holden, the VK, was one of the best cars I’ve ever owned, cost­ing me vir­tu­ally noth­ing for four years. Then, be­cause I’d just got a job that paid me an un­taxed car al­lowance, my ac­coun­tant told me I needed to get a new car or I’d be pay­ing back-tax. What was on of­fer? The new Holden VN, the worst car I’ve ever owned.

So let’s wipe up the croc­o­dile tears and hope that the im­ports can do a bit bet­ter.
