Haha I had a brief stint a long time ago with a Holden HR..you know the one...13" wheels and a huge steering wheel you had to look through to see the road but the red 6 cyl engine was claimed to be bullet proof..

I gotta say their more recent cars were just plain fugly imo..should've sacked their design department.

That's what I had, but it had the 161 cu motor, probably the only good thing about it. Plus it was a good mobile scaffolding platform.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

The amount of carbon those things pump out probably means you are personally 90% responsible for Global Warming :stir:
Big cars are great fun but we just cannot afford to have these big gas guzzlers around anymore. We are witnessing the end of the automobile age :-(
