New Commodore Supercar breaks cover

I really am not sure how the Aussies will take to the German built Insignia which will now be called the Commodore once the Australian production finishes. The Aussie Supercars will never be the same again, but these are changing times. New Commodore Supercar breaks cover The Gen2 Commodore will make its Supercars debut powered…

March’s delayed order!

Well, this month I have not bought anything from Japan Booster as part of the ever growing JDM 1/64 collection.TBH, the selection for March was not that great, so no need to spend money when I don’t really have it to spend. However, this little lot came through the post from my travels to Oz…

KD’s Top Geary Top Review: Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon

In my lifetime, this is possibly quite historic for myself. I don’t think I will ever drive an Australian built full size car ever again. I mused recently about the changing carscape of Australia and how everything was going either Euro or Japanese, which is a crying shame for a country with such a massive…

2018 Holden Commodore prototype review

I have been blissfully unaware that Holden will call the new Insignia a Commordore in two years time. Haven driven a VE Series II and potentially will be driving a VF in a couple of weeks, there is a huge hat that this car has to wear. Whether Aussies will take to it remains to…
