Ford and Holden. Good start. Ford and Holden utes, at the beach. Getting even better...

Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commodore SS : Comparison review

History dictates that (power) wars don’t end in draws. When the Ford Falcon XR8 arrived in 1992 it made an identical 165kW of power to the Holden Commodore SS and with 388Nm of torque listed a crucial 3Nm ahead. From either side of the trenches the two 5.0-litre engines threw grenades until Holden used Yank weaponry in 1999 with the 220kW 5...

2005 Ford Falcon XR6 review

I see myself as a Holden fan, even with the brand in its current state. My daily is a VZ Calais and I love it. Yet when I sat behind the wheel of my mates Falcon and took it for a three hour spin around town and up the highway, I was impressed. I'm not saying the Falcon is a bad car, because it's not...

May 1974, and my hardtop rolled off the production line at Broadmeadows with a 302 Cleveland. It's now been stroked to 351 cubic inches. Pure gasoline therapy that is good for 23 litres per 100 kilometres, so it's lucky that it has a long range fuel tank to keep it on the street for those long cruising days...
