    I drive an absolute banger, 2003 Holden Commodore wagon.

    Bought it when my Prado bit the dust after 400 thousand kms, and some very expensive repair bills right at the end.

    This car cost me peanuts 3 years ago, has been totally reliable, hauled all my gear, plus 4 x band members, plus the band's double axle trailer to gigs all over the state.

    I can fit huge furniture on the roof racks, decent size furniture in the back when the seats are down. It needs next to no maintenance, pretty good on fuel too. I'm gonna drive it into the ground!

    Best part? The kids won't be seen dead in it!

    I'll try and find /take a photo, but it is nothing to look at.

    The Orange Roller Skate. 2017 Hyundai Accent. This pic was taken the week I got it in May ‘17. It’s currently sitting outside my mom’s place here in New Mexico with 72,000 miles on it. I love this car. It makes me happy. It’s got everything I need, nothing I don’t, hauls all my gear anywhere I ask it to, and gets killer mileage. I just drove it to San Angelo, TX and back for a funeral and it averaged a hair over 43 mpg for the round trip.

    I have no plans to drive anything else for the foreseeable future.

    If I wanted that had a smooth ride and got good gas mileage I would have bought anything else

    I get over 40 MPG on the highway from the 1.8T with fairly good performance, and this one takes regular unleaded.

    Aha ? Peugeot is a brand known in Australia ? Amazing ! :D:D:D;)

    Well... Please note that in no way I own nor can afford a Monteverdi 375L, except in Dinky Toys miniature ! :lol::rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    My Uncle, who was a renowned paediatrist / surgeon in Belgium, had a true one, though. It was his everydays car.

    It was in 1969 or 70, I was circa 5 or 6 years old. He had just bought his Monteverdi, and went at the factory with my Aunt, in Basel (CH), to took delivery of the car.

    It looked just like this one below, the same metallic sky blue and spoked wheels, with a 5-speed manual gearbox - while my father's (popular) Renault 16 had 4.

    [​IMG]

    I remember the first time I got in, in the passenger seat, just beside my Uncle at the steering wheel :

    - "Hey, Young Man," he asked, "what do you think of my new car ?", once we were installed and he started driving.

    - "Uncle," I replied, "the drawback is that I can't see the road !". He laughed of my ingenuous child answer :lol:... He was so kind. :)

    That's why I held the Monteverdi in high regard. ;)

    But it's me, OK ? :D
