As a late bloomer on this forum, and having picked up the book in late Jan this year, I have read almost half way. As Whilst reading the book the obvious thing I'm picking up here us the lack of pictures. Would have been really nice seeing at least some of the cars, as well as some scenic travel shots mixed in. Maybe there's zn explanation at the end of the book. Any way, back to reading...

Also would have been useful if the two writers demonstrated some research skills about the car's demise in Oz. They could then explain how the boofheads at Holden were able to stuff up the car's handling and price-point so bad, and then single handedly send the Piazza brand to it's undeserved grave so quickly in Oz. There's a reason why Holden prefer to forget the Piazza's introduction into Oz. It's called incompetance

A couple of paragraphs at the beginning of the book, or even better at the back cover, would have given the perfect chance to set the record straight, and perhaps generated more interest from non Piazza owners. Greatly missed opportunity here boys.
