And some fine cars you build there Jenny!!! General Motors owns Holden and brought one of them here as the new Pontiac GTO and it just smoked everything right out of the box, virtually bulletproof.
We ourselves have an Aussie car that Karen drives to work. The parent company is Mitsubishi but our Diamante (called a Vicara in Oz) never saw Japan. A great car......and I have worked around cars all of my professional life. It was built to compete with Lexus and Infiniti but never caught on and I have no idea why not! Luxurious, powerful, good handling, and pretty economical....hard to beat!
Karen likes the Diamante better than her previous BMW. There is even a "Product of Australia" sticker in the window. Karen calls her Sheila(:<))
