    Holden Monaro, on which the new Monaro/GTO was based.

    Falcon GT.. these caused a supercar scare in which politicians banned our muscle cars after a journalist published a photo of the speedo at 140MPH and it landed on the front page of the newspaper :(

    Finally, my favorite, the Holden Torana.. take a 70's 4cyl hatch and jam a 5 litre V8 in it from the factory :bigthumb: These things did great in motorsport

    I love the numberplate on this Torry hehe

    Gotta soft spot for these as well. This is an old Holden Commodore possibly a stroker this one, don't know much about it

    What do you guys think of our older cars? I personally love Camaro's etc just you can't get em here cause they're LHD.. there's a few RHD ones around but they're very expensive. Parts aren't available either. I'm sure a bright OT'er could make big $$$ exporting your cars to other countries :o

    I have some crazy old school Aussie car vids if someone can host.. my fav is the ~600hp old school baby blue Monaro in a local burnout comp. Most insane burnout I've ever seen, but it ends in engine fire :wtc:

    Trishield mate, you need to come over for the Summer Nationals aka Summernats.. :)

    Random summernats pics-

    The Holden Torana was one bad ass piece of kit in its day. Nothing could touch it in a straight line.
