1978 Holden Kingswood HZ 202 - 3.3L from Australia and New Zealand
Not in the military but want a TANK??
The main thing that has gone wrong is just the fact there is a bit of rust on it, but hey the thing is 30+ years old.
Apart from that it drinks a fair bit of coolant in the radiator and used to pop a few fuses.
The main problem I have with it is it slides all over the place in the wet, but I guess adding 18inch rims with low profile tyres doesn't help.
If you're after a car that costs nothing to run (Besides the petrol costs) this is it. Nothing goes wrong with it, I have maybe serviced it twice just changing oil/filters etc twice in 5 years and it is bullet proof.
Parts are DIRT CHEAP! and it never needs much.
It took a ding to the front and cost $200 for a new front end and radiator.
They are comfortable, large, cruisers.
It gets looks wherever it goes, a total stunner.
Only thing I don't like is the 3 on the tree (manual) transmission, but a supra box is easy to fit on it and LPG is a quick fix too!
Only 3 things can survive a nuclear holocaust.. Cockroaches, Crocodiles... & Kingswoods!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
