Joel Helmes with some options for the proudly unsophisticated new car buyer.

If you prefer AC/DC to Mozart, drag racing to the opera and believe flannel is attractive, then you might just be a Bogan.

Sadly, even the best-kept Holden Gemini, VL Commodore and EA Ford Falcon won’t last forever and that means sooner or later every Bogan needs to trade-in and trade-up.

For the CUB (Cashed Up Bogan) especially, your car choice is quite substantial…

Holden Commodore SS

Best Cars for Bogans – SS Commodore.

There isn’t a Bogan anywhere who doesn’t dream of having one of these in their driveway (well except the Ford loving Bogans).

With a hulking 6.0 litre V8 under the bonnet you can pretend you’re Brocky while chewing up 17L/100km of unleaded in the city!

Ford Falcon – FPV

Best Cars for Bogans – For the Ford loving Bogan, anything from FPV!

For the really cashed-up Bogan who still has pictures of Dick Johnson, Allan Moffatt and Craig Lowndes (he’ll see the light one day and come back!) on his walls , anything from FPV is seen as the ‘holy grail’ of cars.

The Limited Edition GT-R Spec came with a near ridiculous 335kW and 570Nm and the supercharged 5.0 litre V8 under the bonnet produced a noise second-only to a Slash guitar solo to the ears of a true Bogan.

Chrysler 300 SRT-8

Best Cars for Bogans – the tyre smoking Chrysler 300 SRT-8.

For the Bogan looking for something a little more exotic, this pimp-mobile from Detroit should be on your list.

The 6.4 litre Hemi V8 develops 347kW and 631Nm and you can boast to your friends that your new toy uses about four times as much fuel as a hybrid as it sucks through 20L/100km in the city!

With an awesome 19 speaker stereo system, you can easily put the windows down and share Rose Tattoo’s Greatest Hits with the world!

Mitsubishi Lancer

Best Cars for Bogans – Mitsubishi Lancer, ready to be EVO’d!

For the not so cashed up Bogan there are plenty of options, but none can beat the Mitsubishi Lancer!

Priced from under $20,000, add a big set of wheels, a few stickers and a monster rear-wing and your friends won’t be able to tell you haven’t just scored yourself an EVO!

Holden Barina

Best Cars for Bogans – One for the ladies – the Holden Barina.

Shazza, if Bazza is helping you buy a car, chances are the only place he’ll set foot in is a Holden dealership.

That means you can finally buy your dream car – a Holden Barina.

Sure, the Barina is made in one of those Asian countries, but that Holden badge still carries a lot of street cred!

You’ll also need to remember to budget for pink Playboy seat covers, of course!
