An awsome motor car released in the 60's by GHM. also known as Torrie, it was the first australian car to give the buyer a choice of 4, 6 or eight cylinders (a total of 8 engines).

The prefix of the model numbers are "L" eg. LH, LX, LJ, LC... etc...
This refers to the "light" nature of the car.

Australian-built version of the European Vauxhall Viva car of the 1960s and 1970s, with a wider range of engines. TORANA is an abbreviation of Tons Of Rust And No Acceleration, which applied to all four and six-cylinder models.

The V8 versions, especially the SLR of the 1970s, are sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.

Holden is considering resurrecting the name for a new model.
My Torana was blowing so much smoke, I couldn't see anything out of the rear-view mirror!
