God, Aussies...did you know? You have the steering wheel on the wrong side of the car...:D

What do these countries have in common:
* Australia
* Japan
* UK

They DRIVE IN THE WRONG SIDE OF THE STREET... :D

Which reminds me of a story.

An old lady from Sweden went down to Germany and was driving on the Autobahn. She had the strange feeling something was wrong, so she turned on the radio.

On the radio, at precisely that moment, there was a traffic warning. The speaker urged drivers on the autobahn to be extremely careful since there was a crazy driver going the wrong way.

"One?" the old lady yelled. "There must be thousands!!!!"

:)

Steve,

Yeah, we drive on the left hand side of the road on the right side of the car !!!!
Right !

I think it's to do with Australia being originally an English convict colony, so we have to follow their lead.

I am not sure why Japan have right hand drive vehicles, Maybe as they started building cars prior to WW2, just to P*ss off the rest of the world !!

I wouldn't want to go to America or Europe. I would be turning on the Wipers when I want to use the indicators & for me it would be tricky to use the shifter with my right hand. PLus I might end up like that old Lady......:sarc !!

You mean left, right? Right! No left! (Quote from a film with my favorite comedian John Cleese, I don't know the title in english. Cleese is a headmaster going to a conference where he has to hold a thank-you speech...)

I understand your fear of right-hand traffic. I share the same fear for left-hand traffic...

However, if you are a right-handed person, then I would assume shifting with the right (!) hand would come very easy to you...

:D

Are all hatchbacks like this in Australia?







And does that also counts for Japan?

Great! Then if your left hand is busy and you have only one hand left, then using the right hand would be the right move, and the only choice left, right?

:D

Hi Steve,

Well I guess I could always use my feet as well.............especially for counting to 20 !!


Matt,

The picture you have posted is of the Luxury Sports Hatch Model, which is top of the range in Australia.......there are 3 hatch models available.....

My car is the Luxury Model, which doesn't have the body kit or the Fog Lamps or rear spoiler, but the rest of the spec is the same as the Luxury Sport Model. It is the middle model. YOu can also get a base model hatch called the "classic"

Hoping this helps..

Rod
