Technically, on cars with what looks like rear disc brakes, the brakes are both like drums and discs. The normal braking uses the discs to brake, the emergency brakes actuate a drum-like brake pad on the inside of the rotor. So yeah, technically these are both drums and discs.

On the LH cars, that is true. In general, that is not exactly true.

Our cars use a DIH (drum in hat) parking brake. Inside the hat (center section) of the rear rotor are two shoes. As you said, in this type of setup the discs are used for stopping and the shoes are used as the parking brake.

There are cars out there that don't use a DIH setup for the parking brake. Some medium and heavy trucks use a drive shaft parking brake (basically a drum setup on the drive shaft). Some cars use the rear discs as the parking brake. I do not like that type of parking brake system.

Just to make it clear: *ALL* 2nd gen. LH cars have disc brakes on all four wheels for the service brakes (and a drum type brake for the parking brake on the rear - disc for service brakes and drum for parking brake in one assembly).
