Ford closes its Australian factories after more than 90 years of car-making
If you are an Australian you would have to agree that this is really bizarre, as the show that Ross was in was named after a Holden car and Ross's character hated Ford with a passion.

If you grew up like I did in Australia, there was always a polarization between driving a Ford, or Holden car.
It was almost like being either a Catholic, or Protestant in the same era.
I've driven and owned both brands of cars and now own and am very happy with my Hyundai i30, so work that out for yourself.

Not only that, but fellow Cronulla Sharks supporter Brenden Cowell is playing Ford stalwart Allan Moffat in that show and Steve Bisley is playing Harry Firth.
I've written posts about meeting Brendan Cowell and Steve Bisley at these links -

I had no interest in watching this TV series until I learned today that Brendan and Steve are playing characters in this TV show.

But on another personal sync, my father passed away aged 86 also in the same year that Ross Higgins passed.
This has to be a truly bizarre synchronicity for most Australians with Ross Higgins passing away the same day Ford pull out of Australia.
