Holden Gemini TE: Looking somewhat like scaled down Commodore.
Mercedes 300D: Diesel Mercedes in Australia are rarer than their petrol powered counterparts, but in other parts of the world (Europe and Middle East) diesel Mercedes 300D’s like this one are more widespread and are often used as taxi’s due to their low running cost and high reliability. The 5 cylinder Mercedes diesel engine is apparently one the most reliable diesel engine’s ever produced for a passenger vehicle.
Holden Commodore VK Wagon 5.0 Litre: It’s hard to believe, but the VK Commodore is now 30 years old. The VK’s were once a common sight on Aussie roads during the1980’s, but sadly very few are now seen getting around. This particular car is a Vacationer series model which came with a few extra’s such as aircon, power steering, roof rack, electric antenna and tweed cloth seats. It’s unlicensed and off to a new home.
