1987 Holden Camira SLX 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
GM's late '80s masterpiece
Fourth main bearing collapsed. Replaced with a jam tin home made device. Worked well, but the exhaust stunk of rotten apricots.
One of the most riveting drives you can imagine. Acceleration will cause a constriction in your spine. This car gets so many looks I have to wear shades. Holden's in line four is turbine smooth and out-does my Jaguar V12. Auto gearbox changes like a racing F1 machine. Buy one - you will not regret it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

At your local wreckers!!!
Or in the paper in the "under 50 bucks" section.
No really, the Camira was a fabulous car in the 80s and is still quite a good performer today. All I can say is that with the current petrol price, no one can go past the Camira as the new "Commodore" - very roomy and powerful car.
