We already know that, come October 20, operations at the long-standing Holden plant in Elizabeth, South Australia, will cease. That's old news – we've known since January.

A side had to be chosen and God-forbid you changed your mind or sat on the fence...
Is the final fast Holden Commodore - the SS V Redline - the best yet? Matt Campbell finds out...
