    Now this is a thread to talk about any car as long as it is Australian. I know this thread will be enjoyed by some users such as myself, Calais, destroyer8769 and Laxis88

    Rules:
    No foreign POS
    No wasting whole pages with arguments
    No insulting Australian cars

    Feel free to talk about Holdens (Not the Astra, Volt, Malibu or Barina), Fords (Only Falcon or Territory), All HSV, HDT and FPV models, Chrysler Valiant, Elfin & Joss.

    Pft, Aussie cars.

    My mum owns a Ford Falcon, 4L 6 cyl thing, which I regularly drive. It feels big, heavy, and boaty, it's almost like driving a bus. :eek:

    Nah, it's quite nice, but I must admit, I like the look of Holdens more.

    I'll just start off with this. I found out recently that the Holden HJ Premier was sold in Japan under the name Mazda RoadPacer

    And they put the mirrors above the wheel arches for some apparent reason...

    well, the wing of a car does refer to the area above the front wheel arches, so technically they have put the wing mirrors on the wing as the name implies, unlike modern cars where they stick the so called wing mirror on the door.

    If I may just ask, have you been to jail? You sound like a crazy Aussie who likes smashing into stuff.

    Door-mounted wing mirrors weren't legal in Japan until around 1983.

    I'm glad i live in the opposite hemisphere. Also, a question if I may. Are we allowed to talk about Ford Rangers since they're Australian?

    Ah, nice to see a post for Aussie cars, my profile pic belongs here lol. But anyway, Holden is still amazing as always and so is Ford, so sad to see the Aussie built cars to go but we got good vehicles over the years. We have a 2013 Toyota Camry Atara S because of fuel efficiency and because it is Aussie built. Anyway IHadACoolName, what is your honest opinion about the VF? I personally like the way Holden have added so many good features while keeping that good old Aussie feel to the cars.

    I love it, I think the VF just shows the world how good us Aussies are at making cars. Too the people who say it looks like a Mazda 6 or Toyota Camry, I say fuck off to Specsavers
