Daniel Jarrett ASKED THE GUIDE

Which runabout?

I HAVE been thinking about buying an older, cheaper car to run around in and do a few longer trips. A VL Commodore or a JE Camira -- which would you prefer?

THE Camira was heavily criticised when it was new, and the criticism was justified. They rusted badly, burned oil and fell to bits. Early models should be avoided at all costs, but by the time Holden turned out the JE, most of the problems had been fixed. The problem is they are now at least 15 years old so should be approached with caution.
