Netherlands Car Sales By Brand : 1980-84

The Opel Kadet 

Car sales were quite stable in this period despite economic reforms going on. A poor 1981 highlights that but as badly as it could have been. Two U.S. car companies were comfortably on top at this time. I would have liked to separate VW and Audi but couldn't for all the years so combined them for consistency (nearly 6,000 Audi car sales in 1984). I did the same for Peugeot and Talbot but the latter was in decline at this time.
