With the redevelopments planned, at least it won't suffer the disgrace of the MG factory in Longbridge in the UK:

Nobody turned off those lights on the way out.....

Me too but they haven’t really built what i’d call a useable or viable car for myself and many others for 10 years or more. Both of our current everyday cars replaced Aussie made Holdens (Cross8 and CV8) and there was no replacement for either available, so we both drive Toyota based product (Hilux and RX350). I know the RX350 isn’t a direct replacement for the CV8 but Holden had no car to replace the Monaro and no SUV worth having either.

And then there were none Thank you to all involved

The wagon has left for it final destination
Holding lot is now empty
It will be hard driving past
and looking into a vacant car park and not seeing
any brand new AUSTRALIAN MADE HOLDENS any more
Thank you to all who were there from day one to the last
at all the sites around the country
A special thank you to all the workers that were involved during WW1 and WW2
It was there effort during WW1 by Holden and Frost workers that kick started the move towards the first ever HOLDEN being built
