About “The People Eater”

Made by Holden in Australia. I waited 10 years for a car to finally come out that could replace my Supercoupe. I wasn't crazy about the color, and I'm not happy that the dealer put the "sport appearance package" on the car. But none of that matters - the way it drives is so much more important than looks.
