When setting up your permaculture property you will need some kind of vehicle to haul all the building materials etc. The key here is to find a car that is technologically simple, reliable and that you can repair yourself- literally a car that will run forever. I remember when visiting David Holmgren's property he ran an old Ford F100 utility truck on LPG to haul gear, while the Volvo stationwagon sat idle in the garage.
Cars that make the shortlist are the legendary Volkswagon, the Peugot 404, the Indian Ambassador by Hindustan Motors, and even the original Ford Model-T.
Of course I personally drive the highly fashionable 1981 Mitsubishi Sigma Station Wagon, still going strong!
