CAR OF THE YESTERYEAR

Brian Wood, via email

Extremely disappointed Wheels could not offer the VFII SS-V a place in this year’s COTY (Cars of the year, December).

Holden deserves praise and support for continuing to develop the Commodore despite its imminent exit from manufacturing in Australia.

With new engines and significantly revised brakes, suspension and steering, it would have been fitting to overlook the letter of COTY law and offer the last, and best, a wildcard entry.
