    This time, people either got it right, or didn't find it at all. Not a single wrong answer.

    Reversing mirrors? Vans in Australia have them too. Good idea.

    The enterprising could make their straps from strips cut from the instruction sheet

    There certainly aren't as may cars making the trip across the pond in that direction. Isuzu are often sold as Holden, but a Holden sold as a Mazda? That's just plain weird.

    You've got worries. I haven't finished last year's one yet.

    A few people have found the wrong car now. Some even said it was easy to find...

    This one is hard. If you think it is easy, you have the wrong car.

    Depending on where you look, it is either a 1975-1977, or a 1975-1979 Mazda Roadpacer AP. Essentially, it was an exported Australian Holden Premier rebadged and factory fitted with Mazda's 13B rotary engine. It was a very poor marriage of technology, resulting sluggish performance and poor fuel economy as the 13B struggled to drag around the Holden's mass.
