Holden Commodore Sedan, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and GM/Chev trucks are all inellegible as they were part of our 2006 COTY.

Is Kuga on sale? Is Enclave sold in Mexico or Canada?

Domino - We elected last year a COTY, TOTY, SUVOTY and all

Commercial vehicles - if you dont care, dont nominate any.

You DONT HAVE TO NOMINATE cars for every category. Those are just the open categories, select 1, 2, 4 or all categories as you please.

Dont double-nominate. It helps nothing towards final score.

My Light, mid and large nominees have been posted as well as SUVs and pickup segments.

People mover - Is the Mitsubishi Delica ellegible (min 2 country rule)?

Nah the Kuga is still a few months away from showrooms so i guess my nomination is for the Tiguan instead (not sure if that is on sale right now though either )

Large: Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (even though it doesnt have 4 doors its still a large car, and i cant think of anything else to nominate)
Performance: Audi R8
People Mover: Kia Rondo-a little unexpected but its been getting fairly good reviews
Small SUV: If i say the LR2 (it didnt go on sale in America until this year) does that count?
Large SUV-Mazda CX9
Pickup- Ford Super Duty
Commercial- I dont know the name but the Fiat/Citroen/Peugot car.

by the way how many countries sell Holden? Is it only Oz and New Zealand?
