Holden Commodore

The locally-built Holden Commodore is 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 big sedan is the best Holden has ever made. However, the end of local manufacturing means that future Commodores won't be from next door; they'll be from the other side of the world. Current prices range from $33,690 for the Commodore LT to $55,990 for the Commodore VXR.

The Commodore name will live on, however, with the badge likely to adorn an imported sedan from GM's European division, Opel. But that works, in a weird way; the original Commodore was basically a reengineered version of the Opel Rekord, so the circle can be complete.
