1983 Holden Commodore VH Wagon 2.8 from Australia and New Zealand
Simple, comfortable, classic
Well, being an old car, just the usual things such as points (remember them?).
Radiator rusted out every 3 years, but perhaps putting plain water in it wasn't a smart idea! These were the old steel radiators which were all rubbish, regardless of car brand.
Seats sagged slightly in the time I had it, but the later VN Commodore seats were much worse!
Pale yellow station wagon with brown intercourse (ouch), oh well, got her cheap in an ex government auction. Mostly garaged, and only used once or twice a week, and a few driving holidays every year.
I liked the metal bumpers, and the metal door handles; made it feel a bit special. Didn't rust like the older Holdens, although this one had a sheltered life, spending most of the time in the garage. Very comfortable inside, with brown (!) dash/beige seating. Only had a AM radio though, LOL! Those were the days. Comfy, easy to fix and durable however!
In my opinion, the interior was better quality than the later VN Series, which I also owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
