Coolest Car We've Ever Owned — Only got rid of her in the end as we couldn't afford the fuel bill (circa ~NZ$1.19/l) - it would cost around NZ$200 to fill her now - for about 450kms around town or ~700kms open road.

Pros: Gorgeous to drive,
Even a drive to the dairy had a sense of occasion to it.

Cons: Fuel use

A German Panzer Tank... By Chris

Bloody huge, but 7 seats and enough space to move a small army makes it hugely practical, plus it was quite quick considering its size! Nice interior and despite 220,000 on the clock it just didnt wan... Read More
