Question Can anyone tell me what cars these are?

Hi Guys,

I am currently in New Zealand, saw this weird looking mini, can anyone tell which car is this, i mean what company & model, there was justa small logo on it which i couldn't study as my friends were hurrying :(



Here are some other pics which I took here





American Muscle

AUDI(which Model ?)

A soft top Beetle

Check out the mags :-)


I couldn not see most car's model name as my friends would leave me behind while am busy clicking snaps of cars :(

I saw atleast 5 different(totally) types of corollas here & few variety of Camry.

Saw almost every Indian car(yeah even the swift & versa & Accent &...)
The Opel vectra is sold as Holden Vectra.

will add more later :-)

Nice pics Techno but my favourite is no doubt the Mustang . Looks a different breed all together among the other car pics you have posted. No exotics sightings yet?

the Alfa Romeo GT is exotic enough ! i wonder how the driver handles the torque steer ..

hey techno - lookout for the Holden Monaros ...rather keep your ears open

the stang is imported ..its a LHD all cars in New Zealand are RHD ... surprised that the LHD's are allowed to run on the road ...

I believe Holdens belong more to the Opel / Vauxhall family .. some of them, like the Commodore V8's are beeg beasts of which I haven't seen Opel / Vauxhall counterparts .. otherwise you have the astra, vectra etc ..

Holdens are pretty good cars. They're like the muscle cars of Down Under. The black half truck, half pickup is called a ute. I think it's running the same basic 5.7 litre V8 that you see in the Corvette.

They also have a tuner section like AMG and NISMO, called HSV.

The Holden you really need to keep your eyes open for though is the limited edition Monster Monaro. That's a 7.0 litre beast that can really rip the tarmac...

the monster Monaro your talking about is the legendary Pontiac -GTO ..

Holden represents GM in austrailia ..GM owns vauxhal, opel etc ... hence they have the same models under the different badging ..
