As the distances are vast here, and they think nothing of driving for an hour to get to the shops, we decided we needed a car.we bought the red Ford Falcon, it's a huge wagon, thats got a 4-litre engine!! all cars over here have huge engines.
we have had a few problems with it, but most were fixed by the garage we bought it off. the only problem still is a coolant leak, but we have found the damaged pipe and am replacing it tonight. so for $1600 (£700) we have done ok!! we will sell it before we leave, and try to get most of our money back, cos it's in good condition.
