    It's probably too slow to keep up with jet fighters anyway so it's useless.

    In the 1960's, Holden realized that there was a market for smaller cars, so in 1964 Holden released the Vauxhall Viva. But it was not a great success. In 1967 Holden released a marginally better car, and called it the HB Torana (Torana was an aboriginal word meaning "to fly")

    In 1968 Holden released the LC Torana. It was similar to the HB but with a longer wheelbase and an all new body.

    1968 also marked the introduction of the 6 cylinder engine into the Torana, as well as the sports models the GTR and GTR X-U1 .

    In 1972 Holden released the LJ Torana. It was basically the LJ with a few minor differences, including a new grill, new split rear lights, Holden continued making the GTR, GTR XU-1 as the LC versions were very popular.

    In March 1974 Holden released the new LH. It was basically a smaller Kingswood, it was a noticeable amount bigger than the LJ/LC. 1974 also marked the introduction of the V8 engine into the Torana continuing the tradition of the GTR XU-1 Holden introduced the SL/R 5000 (Sports Light/Racing)

    The next Torana was the LX, which looked a lot like the LH, but with square front headlights, as well as Radial Tuned Suspension, which means the LX handled a lot better than the previous Toranas. The LX model also introduced the hatch back version of the Torana. The LX model continued the SL/R 5000, as well as introducing the sports hatch the SS Torana. The racing version of the LX was called the A9X which was very successful on the track.

    In 1978 Holden released the UC Torana. It had the best suspension, gears in any Torana, but sadly they ditched the V8 engine, so the UC was not nearly as popular, In 1979 Holden was making the Kingswood Wagon, the Commodore Sedan, the UC Torana, the Gemini, they had to ditch something, sadly they picked the UC Torana.

    supposedly hasn't gotten a tune out of it yet. Look new from teh pics, and no info on the site about it, except for its competing in teh Street Car challenge. The motor look like a 304 or 308. Nothing too big.
