Solid Aussie Tank
The car was a typical Aussie Tank; built very solid and a great runner.
The only things that went wrong were minor and annoying such as the starter motor falling on the road.
The car almost got me arrested. Late one night after finishing a late shift at work, I got into it to go home when the gear linkages jammed (an old Holden problem).
That was no problem to me as it had happened to me before; you just have to lift the bonnet and it's just a simple matter of fiddling the linkages with your fingers until they drop into place.
On this occasion I was doing this when I felt a tap on my shoulder; I ignored this as I thought it was one of my workmates. After about three more taps I lost patience and told them to F*** off.
Only problem it was a cop who wanted to know why I had my head under a bonnet on a dark street. After some fast talking and a very red face, he believed me and let me go.
Very well built car from GMH Holden.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
