1987 Holden Camira SL 1.8L inline 4 from Australia and New Zealand
Good reliable car
Listed in order:
Brake caliper bolt fell out while driving!
Both rear engine mounts are now broken. I am replacing them soon.
Brake booster just died a week ago. I have now installed a second hand replacement.
Has a shake when I go over 90kph. If anyone knows what causes this, please leave a comment!!
My Camira is a Feb 1987 1.8 Litre throttle body fuel injected inline 4, with 3 speed automatic gearbox.
This car has been very good to me, it really does take everything I give to it. It's reliable (remember, new cars can break down), still looks quite modern, is very very very good on petrol, rides very well (much like a Commodore) and for what it is, has a lot getup if you need to dump it.
My question to readers:
I would really like to have a project car of some sort. I really do like Camiras, but the problem I face is that my Camira is a wagon. I was thinking of selling and then buying a JE Camira, instantly gaining another 20kws as they are a 2.0L multi-point inline 4. And of course it would be a sedan.
I would like to hear your views on what I should do?
And for those people who think Camiras are an absolute joke, if you haven't driven one (a good one), then lay off!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 2.0 multi-point fuel injected white Camira. It is great and I agree with the comment; don't bag a Camira unless you've driven a good one.
I'm trying to fix it up, but so far I've only got a pod filter and a sound system, and seat covers with steering wheel cover and mats. I want to put red neon's underneath, and put a body kit or even just a front bar. I don't care; I just want to make it even greater.
CAMIRA PRIDE BABY!!!
