Holden Torana — It cost $500 to buy second hand and I sold it for $500 after over two years of ownership. It wasn't the most reliable car, but it was simple and so relatively easy to maintain and fix. Had to replace the clutch cable (yes a cable!) once and the column shift lever. It was also prone to overheating from time to time (I kept bottles of water to top up the radiator). I fitted an Alpine stereo to the car which sat on the transmission hump and I covered it with a T-shirt to prevent it being stolen. The stereo probably doubled the value of the car! The car could be opened with a screw driver so I was amazed that the stereo never got stolen.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: simple easy to fix

Cons: rusty wayward handling rubbish brakes

Get One, You'll Never Regret It, And Dont Sell It! — yea its my first car, intend to build it up to be something special. goes hard, no numbers on it but i rekon its putting out 150 - 160hp from the 202. has a 5 speed Vk box, 3.08 banjo diff. is red and with blackouts. centerline style mags

Pros: Its bloody tuff!

Cons: Probably the biggest issue with this car is the rust.

Lx Two Door V8 — It was a car I inherited from one of my mate when he met the maker. Although its looked and sounded awesome, the 253 just didn't have any power, and it was still running 6 cylinder brakes, diff and gearbox. So in summary, this example didn't go, handle or stop well. Needed a stack on money spent to make it a really good car - there is some awesome well loved one around though.

Pros: Looked and sounded awesome - classic Aussie muscle, looks and style.

Cons: Performed like a 30 year old car.

1976 Holden Torana Hatchback — this particular vehicle started life as a six cylinder four speed manual. Its since had a 5 ltr 308ci engine installed and runs a four speed manual to a locked diff. from a standing start the car accelerates very hard breaking traction in 1st and 2nd gears i estimate the top speed of the torana with its gear ratios to be around 220km/h. this car has had BIG $$$ spent on suspension it runs koni adjustable shocks in the front with superlow king springs and in the rear it has bilstein shocks and lowered king springs. brakeing is done through cross drilled and sloted front disc's and drum rears however they will be changed for disc's when the diff upgrade is done.Interior is factory original except for two recaro racing seats and soon to have harness's and a roll cage

Pros: people love seeing older cars on the road
other drivers stay out of your way!!
its cool too own a car that is unique and not boring

Cons: cops love to hassel you
fuel consumption SUX it probly costs me as much to start my car as it would to drive a new 4 cylinder 10kms

Classic Cruising Automobile — I love this car, everytime I get in to drive it it's an experience. It loves the open road and especially likes to cruise along in the sun.

Pros: its awesome on road trips and looks good when it's clean

Cons: I don't get to drive it often enough
