Cruise In Style — Its a classic man :) it was used in the 1974 commonwealth games to transport athletes to different events . it has been rebuilt in the past and is currently in parts to have rust removed . its a sunny day car to enjoy .

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: just cruise around

Cons: being an older car :) to much rust :(

Kingswoods For The Win — Whats better then an old carby motor, it farts needs to warm up for half and hour has the worst fuel economy and I love it. All pre 80's holdens are the best cars of their time, (maybe not against an ford xy gto)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: ITS TUFF

Cons: rust

Q-zif — i bought her when i was 16. it had a six cylinder 202 and now she packs a whopping 4.2L of holdens best 8 cylinders! i built the top end of this motor with a few after market goodies and fitted it myself other bits and pieces i did include a rebuild of the front and rear suspension, floor shift auto(used to be column), new interior, custom rear bar and a re-spray in satin black( havent got any photos yet). i have no intentions of getting rid of her, and have plenty more in mind for her in the future.

Pros: great to drive knowing that i put it together. Puts a smile on my face every time i boot it

Cons: fuel economy isnt great

I Owned This For 1 Week — I bought this car one morning when I woke up very hung over with a sense of nostalgia. i.e. I had a HQ for 6-7 years quite a few years ago. But, after one week I realised that fond memories of old cars should remain memories. the bench seat was horrible as was the column shift and the boat like handling. I sold it the very next week.

Pros: LOOKS

Cons: Handling, comfort and column shift 3 speed
