aussie vs american is there a difference
Im the same , i like the american long/bling/power style. Of which we have little here in aus. A small snapshot of australian car history - *taken from reader

In May 1950, when the cheapest car in Australia was the Ford Anglia tourer at £483 [$19 160], Lawrence Hartnett announced that he hoped to sell a ‘people’s car’ for £416 [$16 500].

Hartnett, an English-born engineer, arrived in Australia in 1934 to take charge of General Motors-Holden’s (GMH). He was largely responsible for the creation of the Holden car, but he left GMH in 1947 after a disagreement with his American principals. One of the main reasons was his insistence that the Holden be Australian in character and design.

The four-seater Hartnett was designed by the French designer J. A. Gregoire. Four test cars were built and shipped to Australia where they were tested on some of the toughest roads. The cars had an aluminium-alloy chassis, a two-cylinder, 4.5-kilowatt engine and a top speed of 115 kilometres per hour. Two thousand Hartnetts were ordered, but only 125 were produced before the project collapsed. There were two causes for the failure – the Victorian Government withdrew concessions it had promised, and the Commonwealth Engineering Company broke its contract to supply panels.
