Hand-Me Down cars

Yes yet another inspid survey from the powers that be. Yes we've all had one of these cars in ours lives given to us for small change or
from our folks or lying around gathering just in Uncle Arthurs chook shed.
Or we may have driven one at some point in time. These cars may be much loved by us or hated with a deep desire. Will be interesting to see OZ's biggest hand me downers.

My best known hand me down cars are (what I've owned and what I've sold or given to family)-

1. Ford Cortina
2. FJ-EH Holden
3. Sigma
4. Daddos especially the 180Y or the Sunny.
5. XM-P Falcon
6. Early Model Magnas
7. XF Falcon
8. Goggomobile
9. Toranas of any sort
10. Kingwoods

Re: Hand-Me Down cars

I was totally unimpressed with mum & dad's cars and wasn't going to put up with them if they did become hand me downs. I like to make my own way in life and hence got a car of my own.

So what was it with the R-world anyways? R we gonnR get Rn explanatiRn???

Re: Hand-Me Down cars

That post that somebody mentioned.. Sheesh I don't know even remember what I was actually posting about in the first place. If it is brand name well I think it was I swear by Ford. Dementia (aka- old timers disease) must be setting in. I've been on holidays for the past few weeks in French Polynesia with the Mrs. My humblest apologies for leaving everyone in suspense for so darn long. This probably will put me
having a record in posting something I did not know what I was even posting about....

As for these cars im not rubbishing them my first hotted up number was a XM with a 289 motor. That went like the clappers till I wrote her off.
These are just fairly popular cars that most people must have seen, driven or owned in their lives or as I said hand me downers.
