1984 Holden StatesmanReview

Tough As, A Classic — Not the most sophisticated car, but comfy and dependable. Cheap as a 4 cylinder to run on gas too. Holden 308 never the most powerful engine for a full 5 litres, but punchy enough. Does all it’s work in the bottom 3500rpm – going over that is just a waste of fuel. LPG takes a BIG cut of power, but torque remains strong. Could pull out a tree stump. Ride is smooth over good surfaces, but it doesn’t deal with pot-holes and bumps any better than any other car fitted with a live rear-axle. The benefits are surprisingly good handling characteristics, especially for a car weighing 1.8 tonnes. Exterior dimensions are huge for anything except a Yank Tank – you could park a Yaris on it’s bonnet. Or put it in the boot! Will seat 5 adults in comfort and leave you feeling fresh after a long trip. Possibly the comfiest rear seats in the world. Never misses a beat, never lets me down. Second one I’ve owned and they have both been fabulous. Want something to survive a nuclear air-strike? Look no further.

Pros: Tough, cheap, dependable.  VERY comfy.  Cheap to run on LPG.  Anyone can work on them.  Great street cred - a true classic.

Cons: Not sophisticated, heavy, not fast.
