Oh, that’s right; I keep forgetting about Vauxhall’s.
When I first went to Thailand about 10+ yrs ago; my very first night I spotted a Holden Kingswood! U could have knocked me over with a feather!
They were exported to Asia with original badging. I think they where a fairly high ticket item at the time. Conversely, my first visit to Asia showed that a high percentage of taxis were Mercedes-Benz; But on my last trip a year ago - Most were now Toyotas. ALWAYS a sign of the economy, and Thailand’s economy went down big time.
Yet you'd be AMAZED Case how relatively CHEAP MB's are in NZ! Like 50 grand for the 'kompressors'! Passed a car yard near Rotorua during our 'round the north island drive and they had good used 4wd's for sale and NONE were above 10 grand! Over HERE, the equivalent vehicle would be at LEAST 40 grand! Their Govt beats our blood-sucking one hands down - no import duties!
