Opposite was/is true in NZ. There is maybe was a phase when the kiwis went throught the Big 4wd is the in motor for a status symbol. Replacing the V8 Ford and Holden is best attitude. I hate 4wd owners they think they can drive but they can not. But I was laughing last year when they were complaining about paying 50% more to fill the tanks in there Fuel guzzlers.In UK, people throw old cars away because they are afraid that other people think that they are poor.
Remurea Tractors we call them as most are owned by people in the City aka Auckland.
Displaying of wealth by getting a new car is not a attitude around here just because you drive a early 90s late 80s car your no regarded as poor. Guess its because our second hand cars hold the value?
My BX has a insurance value of $2900 ($2.70 to the pound) what would a 1991 BX19TZS with 174,000km (110k miles) be worth in the UK now?
