let me explain the menu

Geneva was not the only international autoshow opening last week. On the other side of the world, in the land of oz, the Melbourne international autoshow opened to visitors as well. For those unfamiliar with the Australian automarket, I offer an analogy: Australia is the Jersey diner of the autoworld. Everything is available in this remote automotive smorgasbord. The menu is long and reads like Tolstoy. All European makes are here, including Fiat and Renualt, and so are the European Fords and GMs, plus some American models and small Japanese and Korean brands, like Dihatshu. In addition to all these choices, there are the old school Autralian classics, the big sedans, the V8 sports tuned hot rods, and, of course, the Utes. So, whether you're on a diet and looking for a fuel efficient European hatchback, or want a massive early 70's-inspired car for your big petrol appetite, you can find it down under. Just take a look at the exhibitor list and click through to some of the Australian brand websites. You'll enjoy the selection of models. Now if only they delivered. . .
