I actually liked the Vauxhall Cresta's. The old man had one briefly in the '60's before he reverted back to Holdens. (A step backward, imho).
Some nice Ramblers there also. They were really 'classy' for their time.

My (sydneysider un-communist) brother says you're nuts if you buy an Australian-made car. He says no one buys them because everyone knows they're all sh*t. I'm not joking, he really said that

What do other Australians say?

It's more than fair too say we're not the best and never will be, there was also a time when we were crap Not anymore though.

This is a car I just garaged and will keep under cover, have a feeling it will be worth quite a bit in the future, mine only has different wheels,

Quote:
The hero of the sports luxury Ford Falcon line-up, the G6E Turbo, is differentiated from the G6E by a range of performance-oriented features, including the I6 Turbo engine that produces 270 kW of power and 533 Nm of torque, mated with a ZF six-speed automatic transmission.

Aussie designed and built, the G6E Turbo has drawn high praise, with industry judges here putting it on equal terms with some of the best to come out of Europe and Japan.

For reasons best known to themselves, the folk at Ford Australia abandoned the names Fairlane and LTD for their limo line models some time ago a pity because the name Falcon G6E does not have the same cache.

Exotic name or not, the FG Falcon G6E Turbo definitely deserves a spot on the limousine ladder. Leg room in the back is enough to accommodate the most voluminous wedding dress and the wide opening rear doors allow for a dignified entrance and exit.

Ford says designers deliberately set out to produce a performance/luxury European feel with the lower radiator grille opening making a bold and assertive statement while swept-back headlights and purposeful upper and lower grilles combining to differentiate the G Series from other Falcons.

Inside, fabric-wrapped lower door trims and iPod Integration with the vehicle's audio system set the car apart from lesser siblings.

ENGINE:
Type: 4.0-litre turbocharged
Cylinders: Six cylinders in line
No of valves: 24
Compression ratio: 8.8:1
Engine management: Powertrain control module incorporating electronic throttle control
Fuel system: Sequential multi-point electronic injection
Fuel: Unleaded or Premium unleaded; E10 compatible
Maximum power: 270 kW @ 5250 rpm
Maximum torque: 533 Nm @ 2000-4750rpm
Transmission: ZF six-speed automatic with sequential sports shift, rear-wheel drive
That's more than good enough for me, only warranty issue I had was one rear window refused to come down, a 10 minutes fix. Has served us very well

The first song that I played in the car was of course "Racing in the Streets" by the boss. I love street racing.

The car is totally not PC. If you get on it, it swills premium. I only drive a few miles to work so it is ok. A really fun car if you like to wallow in wretched excess.

Air Conditining would be a must. 30+ at night is ridiculous

Could I accept Australia putting us to the sword with the willow?

Yes and No.... I grew up without it, Mum and Dad have lived in the same house for longer than I've been alive without it ever being installed..More at end of post

The only time I use it is during the daytime, I work nights so when I get home early morning, I put it on lowest setting when it's going to be a ridiculously hot day, But other than work days, we tend too use the ceiling fans, I like them better

I remember when I was a kid, kept asking Dad when we were getting an air conditioner, over and over all summer. His response was simply this...If it's hot you're gonna be hot, it's what nature wants....In other words he didn't want too spend cash A few months later, winter came a bit early, was a cold day, I came home, Dad was lying in front of the heater watching TV....I went and turned the heater off. Dad asked me what I was doing, so I replied, If it's gonna be cold, you're gonna be cold that's what nature wants Dad I got one of those backhanders only Dads can dish out

I really think that the (early) homesteaders had it right, with large shady verandas right round the home.
Also good areas for entertaining.

In Queensland many of the old houses (called 'Queenslanders') were built on stilts, to allow air-flow underneath.

Where i am it's a little cooler at night. A friend of mine built a place using cement blocks incorporating cinders (which he sourced from a local factory) using a brick press. The cinders provided insulation. He later painted the walls white, inside and out and with large verandas front and back (which served as a carport at the rear) and large french windows in front, overlooking the countryside. The place had an almost constant, pleasant temperature.

A few fires at night in the middle of winter in this enormous open fireplace took the chill out of the air for the whole house and the whole thing looked a million dollars.

What It Means Too Be Australian

I had quite a few friends over this afternoon and into evening for a BBQ, Long weekend here Sitting around eating ( a lot in my case ) and having a few brews We had a great time.

As I was going through this thread, I was also thinking of the day I had. I thought of the above question in this post, then thought of my mates and their wives, GF's etc... A huge mix of cultures there, backgrounds include, English, Scottish, Irish, Italian, Croatian, Austrian, Chilean, Greek, Chinese, Dutch, Czech, German, Lebanese, Ukranian... I think I got em all. But that's what it means to be Australian, a mix of cultures with a small population of 22 million making this place a bit of a powerhouse considering it's small population but huge physical size and making this place work. Being once isolated, I think we've done a fine job using all those cultures making this the greatest Country on the planet



I am Australian

Another post for my mate palo"Kev"5

Mate, I'm sure you'd be happy too know Russia had a huge influence on our culture, I present you this work of art,

Pavlova



Quote:
In 1935, the chef of the Hotel Esplanade in Perth, Western Australia, Herbert Sachse, created the pavlova to celebrate the visit of the great Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova. Whilst it has been suggested this dessert was created in New Zealand, it has become recognized as a popular Australian dish.
If only you knew how often that is eaten and how good it tastes,
