LEARNING THE LINGO

Bruce Jamieson, Byron Bay, NSW

KILOWATTS, Commodores, Falcons, Japanese cars outselling European rivals, and V8-powered pick-up trucks (sorry, utes) not just the norm but the default choice? These were just some of the things that had this British petrolhead baffled from the moment I stepped off the plane.

So naturally when it came to getting some transportation here, I panicked, did the British thing and bought a German estate car, or should that be wagon?

However, since picking up Wheels, Iím beginning to understand the Aussie way.

MarketPlace taught me a lot about what people buy down here, and it was explained in a really interesting and humorous manner... Exactly the type of information this auto geek likes to read.

A warm and hearty welcome to the Wheels family, Bruce.
