1974 Holden HQ One Tonne Ute 202 from Australia and New Zealand
True Australian "Muscle"
Built for anything the Australian Outback can dish out... and that can be a lot of scary stuff in a huge continent!
Owned the car for about four years, and other than regular maintenance like oils, filter, brakes, coolant etc I haven't needed to do much else to keep it running.
Even if something does go wrong, the replacement parts are cheap!(for now).
Sure, I don't get hybrid car fuel economy and it's a bit noisy (think 100mph farm tractor and you're close), but I have another car that's economical-quiet.
The Holden HQ(1 tonne ute) has been a joy to own and drive on any road, but especially on a long open country road... great car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
