Holden Statesman/Caprice VQ-WM/Crewman Cross 8

Big Holdens from 20 years ago still offer excellent value as roomy family transport. The few that have been carefully preserved might also have some collectability in their future.

Early VQ-VP cars are scarce and good ones continue to appreciate, however their chances of recouping the $56,000 originally charged for a VQ Caprice are minimal.

For a car that still looks impressive and comes with trimmings to match, a WM Caprice that cost $72,000 new is worth $12-15,000 now and bellows ‘plentiful value here’.

Another later-model Holden that’s worth watching is the Crewman-based Cross 8. These offer an alternative to the typical 4WD dual-cab; adding some style, loads of performance and comfort. Beware the fuel bills that accompany 5.7 litres.
