confused Some people

A youngster is ready to buy his first car at my work, he beleives that $600 is going to buy him a great and reliable car.

He was asking this 40 year old d/h advice and he suggested that, "yeah mate, as long as its a Holden, you cant go wrong". This just proves his utter stupidity. Nothing against the choice of car, but my father allways taught me to save up for something decent and it will be cheaper in the end.

But no, this d/h thinks that even the most clapped out p.o.s. he can get for $600 is a good and reliable buy as long as its a "Holden" Give me a break.

Because of this d/h the poor kid's gonna suffer paying to repair a bucket of crap constantly because of misleading advice.

I do however look forward to making the "Typical Holden" remarks when hes trying to go home and it wont start. :s3

Best wishes
