The Origin of Mate vs. Mate

If you thought State of Origin was the original big difference of opinion, think again. Long before the first Origin game back in 1980, we've been divided by something much closer to home. The Australian family car. Since way back when you've either been a Ford or Holden person, strictly blue or red, with allegiance only to Henry or The General.

Australians love their footy, love their cars, and don't mind agreeing to differ when it comes to Ford vs. Holden. All in good spirit, of course.

To celebrate State of Origin 2013, here's what Australia was driving back when it all began. Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon. Which one would you go for?
