HOME TRUTHS

Drive through any Aussie country town, and you will see Commodores and Falcons in people’s driveways, mixed in with the odd Colorado, Hilux or 75 Series (‘Holden to shed 30 dealers as shutdown looms’, Wheelsmag.com.au).

While latte-sipping inner-city types might have long ago abandoned the Aussie large car for hybrids and small-capacity turbo Euros, and the ‘suburban family’ has ditched large sedans in favour of SUVs, nothing is more comfy and at home on a rural Aussie road than a Commodore or Falcon.

That’s where those cars will be missed the most.
