Matt's Gemi — Pros - G200 motor, Weber carb, cam, zorst, went hard for a Gemi. First car, so can't expect too much. Good car to learn about cars, easy to work on Cons - 4 speed. Needed a 5th gear. Plenty of go but revving off its nut at 160km/h. P Plates on the window make it a very much a soft target for cops. Consistent battle with RUST

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easy to work on. Cheap to run

Cons: Rust, cop magnet

1980 Isuzu (holden) Gemini. — For a little car that is 28 Years old, and has spent the last ten years rallying, it is in remarkably good condition. Performance from the 1.6 Litre SOHC Engine is brisk. It has Uprated Suspension for soaking up big bumps on forrest roads as well as a Roll Cage, Rally Intercom & Trip Meter. It handles very well in the dirt with it's Rally Tyres on. I love it. Heaps of fun.

Pros: Quick in the dirt, handles well.

Cons: No air conditioning or stereo. Actually no interior, it's been stripped out, it's a rally car.
