Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

Its Tuff ,easy To Work On And A Little Unique For A First Car — its got a 179hp block but its tired and a Aussie 4 speed. the engine is under sized for the car its in but it cruises along nice. its got arm strong(no power) steering and the interior has a fair way to go. e.g carpet. it has premier bucket seats in fair condition. at $1800 the price was good being a first car. surprisingly minimal rust in it other than the rear of the quarter panels. its economical being on LPG. so far my only major expense has been the brakes at $800 but its better safe than sorry.

Pros: it my not be fast but it sounds better and looks better than the average first car to me.

Cons: what i don't like is the minimal seating but a bench or dickie seat is a possibility

1977 Holden Kingswood Review

Classic — 3.3L Straight Six paired with a 3 speed column shift auto. Bench seats, tan interior, CNG and Petrol (had to switch it to petrol to climb hills lol!). Heaps of character. Orange and rusty, hard to start in the morning... like I said...... heaps of character!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Bench seat

Cons: gas guzzler

She Has Been Inexpensive So I Don't Paying A Bit More For Fuel. — This car is my first baby and there isn't much the two of us haven't done together. We have been cruising for 11 years come September. She had a fair makeover about 6 years ago but she is getting tired again, poor baby.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is history in the making.

Cons: If you don't like clunks.
