While Holden may be a subsidiary of General Motors, I do like what GM has made over the years and I do like some of what Ford has built. Overall though I may lean towards Holden mainly due to their parent company whose older cars I tend to like quite a bit.
It is in my opinion that Ford is much better then Holden. Ford has been around for a long period of time and is well known all around the world. Much more known then Holden. This is why I would choose Ford over Holden in almost all cases and instances.
