Save the Piazza

The Australian Motoring Press labelled the Holden Piazza a dud. Although the word \"deathtrap\" was never directly used it was certainly implied. In order to put these claims to the test Chris and Joe took a Piazza on a 21,000km trip around Australia, giving the unique little coupe the ultimate road test. Their car, Alyce, passed the test with flying colours contradicting the indictments passed by the reviewers. We think its time Wheels Magazine admitted that they were a little hasty in judging the Holden Piazza so harshly and are seeking a written acknowledgement in their magazine.


Chris Warr and Joe Kremzer are two ordinary guys who have a strong sense of justice and deep love for dodgy 1980\'s sports cars. More information can be found at

    7 years ago Comments: The car was treated harshly simply because Holden priced it at a ridiculous rate compared to similar vehicles at the time, in terms of build quality it was superior to most of its rivals. Added to this the time it took Holden to finally decide to import this vehicle gave other manufacturers ample time to produce competitive vehicles of a similar nature. If Holden acted faster, put their marketing campaign to better use, and imported the twin cam non turbo version as a lower base model, the car would have been as much of a success as the Gemini was.
