Old Holden Economics:
A car is the second largest investment a person is ever likely to make. That means there can be a lot of scope for savings.
Old Holden Design Philosophy:
Old Holdens were designed to be owned by families as well as corporations, government departments and small businesses. Everything was designed to be easily replaced which is why the Engine, Gearbox and Differential are separate units.Because of this Design Philosophy, labour charges were low. A Banjo Differential can be replaced in an Old Holden in less than 90 minutes.
The labour component is a large part of car maintenenance. The simple process of being able to do things for yourself can mimimise the expense of keeping a car on the road.Simple things like Oil Changes can be done by an unskilled person and the steps are outlined in Gregory's Manuals.
