Holden Camira JD
The big news for lovers of Holdens Camira came in 1984 with the release of the "JD" model and the introduction of the all new fuel injected 1.8 liter Family II engine. The new motor became standard on all models except the SL.

Externally the car was far more handsome, with modern halogen headlights and a revised front end treatment that cleverly disguised the fact that most of the panels were carried over from the JB.

To many observers it appeared as though Holden had done away with the grille, but of course the air intake was located below the front bumper.

Midway through the life of the JD the 1.6 engine was phased out entirely, and the existing 1.8 modified so as to comply with the governments unleaded fuel regulations.

Power output was reduced, but the designers were able to better the fuel economy figures as a suitable compromise by employing a different fuel injection system.
