Is VB still Australian? Didn't CUB get sold off in the recent ALH Fosters deal? I know Swan / Emu isn't anymore, neither is XXXX. Was Lion-Nathan, then Kirin Japan I think.

Holden has always been Australian from what I understand. They started off as the coachbuilders for GM Chevrolet Australia, then became GMH in their own right, the Australian division of the giant multinational GM. GMH vehicles are unique to Australia although sharing many similarities with others - aka the world car concept.

Drink Coopers green I say, Australian and tastes bloody good too. Drive Landcruisers - they are honourary Aussies.

Have a good one.

" Bloody Skippy get this, friggin Skippy do that, then the little c..t blew on that fvcking gumleaf again!"

It wasn't a repeat, Nudie is that old and confused he can't remember if it was in his first chilhood or the second or third ones.
Nudie is so old and confused he ordered a new cruiser forgetting that he already had one. 0:)))))
