The locally-built Holden Commodore was kind of like Australia's girl next door – we fell for it almost as soon as it arrived in showrooms back in 1978.
Now, just like the girl next door who's grown into a beautiful woman, the last Australian-built VF II was the best Holden ever made. However, the end of local manufacturing means that the current ZB Commodore isn't be from next door, but from the other side of the world. Current prices range from $33,690 for the Commodore LT to $55,990 for the Commodore VXR (5YR).
This works, in a weird way; the original Commodore was basically a reengineered version of the Opel Rekord, so the circle can be complete.
