Re: just a question

First Australian car:
1948: The first all Australian car is produced-the Holden

Re: just a question

Sometimes i feel thats what Ford decided to go Prehistoric on the XY and use Leather for the brakes on that too! Either that or Vinyl, vinyl was all the rage in the early 70's, or so i gather from my car.
