1985 Holden GeminiReview
Great Little Car — She goes pretty well, i think that the 1.5 is probably a little bit gutless, can find one pretty cheap, reasonbly reliable. I bought mine for 500 bucks still going, has the izuzu engine which are used in the light commercials.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Cons: Any damage, Any car will have this though
