GIVE ME MY HQ ANY DAY

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Letters -

GIVE Gary Fer­gu­son ( cars­Guide, Au­gust 15) A big hanky to cry in.

He needs one, he just hasn’t worked it out! His Corol­las are so good he’s gone through six since 1988. Ob­vi­ously they’re good cars, you just don’t keep them longer than war­ranty.

Twenty years ago I bought a six­cylin­der HQ Holden and con­verted it to gas. It’s been around Aus­tralia twice, the sec­ond time tow­ing a car­a­van, and I still drive it to work ev­ery day.

I have six-cylin­der power, the econ­omy of a Corolla and no green­house gas emis­sions. Given the econ­omy and green­house ef­fect, Why Aus­tralians are lin­ing up to buy Corol­las is truly a mys­tery. An­gela Blair

email Don’t be so smug on green­house, as ev­ery car takes en­ergy to cre­ate be­fore you worry about fuel. And LPG still comes from an oil­field. Ed
