Ultimate Oz Rocket! 2014 HSV Gen-F GTS Attacks Bathurst! Epic Drives Ep. 24
From its thunderous, 577-hp supercharged V-8 to its massive brakes and
bodacious bod, Holden's wicked new HSV Gen-F GTS stands alone as
Australia's ultimate performance sedan. Once again making the 7500-mile
trip to Oz, host Arthur St. Antoine joins Motor Trend's native Aussie,
Angus MacKenzie, to wring out HSV's four-door beast on the writhing roads
outside Sydney. From there, it's on to "the Nurburgring of Australia"--the
treacherous Mount Panorama Circuit at Bathurst--where the GTS cuts loose
around the famed race track in the company of one of its most successful
Bathurst competitors of its time.
Epic Drives appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Tribute to Peter Brock
I have seen many great tributes to Peter Brock and have been meaning for
some time to put together one of my own, and here it is finally. Yes, my
blood runs blue, I am a die hard Ford fan, but Peter did what no other
driver has ever been able to do - he brought together Holden and Ford fans,
united in grief at his loss. Please feel free to rate and comment but
derogatory comments will be deleted immediately so don't bother.
Background music is "Is this the end" by Creed and no I don't own the
copyright to the music or any pictures, but they have been used simply to
honour this truly great individual.
Should I Buy a Holden Cruze?
If you're wondering whether you should buy a Holden Cruze ... no.
Emphatically no. Here's why, in a nutshell:
The Holden Cruze has been riddled with design defects since its release.
Some are serious and safety related; other Holden Cruze defects are just
annoying enough to drive you nuts. This video lays out just how bad the
underlying engineering of the Holden Cruze really is - using independently
General Motors Holden spent decades and billions of dollars building the
red lion brand into something Australians trusted and loved. And it worked.
We did love our football, meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars... Even if
that slogan was a direct rip-off of the US campaign that loved baseball,
hot dogs, apple pies and Chevrolet.
Nowadays, we only love three out of those four things, sadly - and the
sales figures prove it. General Motors has has burnt the Holden brand.
Like, somebody left the tumble drier on in Dresden. Again.
Holden is well on the way to becoming the country's third major South
Korean car company: the one without the five-year, unlimited-kilometre
warranty. And the Holden Cruze is the -- unappetising -- shape of things to
come from this once-great brand.
