    Perhaps he drives a Holden ute with a whopping 8 litre V12 engine? To, you know, hoon around the wide open spaces of Hongkers.

  2. Yes, they are nice, solid, robust Aussie cars! Holdens would be excellent cars over here to push the Mercs off the road, not to mention the taxi drivers!!

    There aren't many utes in Hongkers are there? I don't remember any, not that I was looking.

    Sadly I don't think V8 Holdens are quite as brand worthy as Mercs to Hongkies. Perhaps the triads should get themselves some 'real' cars and terrorise the struggling billionaires in their mercs.

  4. Holdens are excellent cars. I've even driven one. There aren't any Holden's in HK, and considering the strong Aussie dollar at the moment it is surprising that Holden's are no viewed as an expensive overseas car that is worthy to have in HK!

    Hmm, 6litre V8 Holden utes the new expensive car of choice for Hong Kong's rich? I have doubts about that, sadly, as that would be hilarious
