It’s my understanding that being a car enthusiast in Australia isn’t exactly easy.
The rules down under about what can and can’t be done to a car are incredibly strict and the cars I so love to post her on SIE constantly run the risk of being defected (pulled off the road) at any moment.
I’m aware Australia isn’t the only place with laws such as this but Australia’s particular set of rules seems to be incredibly strict which is why any time I see an awesome car from Australia I am that much more impressed.
Take this Miata for example; it’s boosted, flared, low, equipped with a crazy looking exhaust, and generally looks aggressive as all hell. For an officer looking to fill his monthly ticket quota this car is a dream come true but does that mean the owner trailers it from track event to track event?
He throws some tires on the trunk lid drives it to the track , flogs it, and drives it back collecting defect tickets all the while.
It’s cars like this that make me want to visit Australia.
That, the beer, and the awesome skate parks.

Australia is a great place to be if you are thinking of selling your car online. Despite all it’s rules and eager cops waiting to crack down they have a number of great cars that North America (utes especially ) didn’t get which makes it a fantastic place to buy and sell. Whether it be a new project or daily driver there’s certainly no shortage of vehicles in Australia.
