The Holden Monaro is an Australian legend
A Holden Monaro. Yes folks, half of the people on this site diss it without even knowing the facts. Let me set it straight for you. Price is $59,350. Dimensions: 186.8 in x 71.8 in x 54.5 in. Engine: 346 ci V8, 332 hp@5600 rpm, 343 lb-ft@4000 rpm. ABS vented disc brakes. Most commonly called the CV8 III Engine. HOLDEN IS MADE IN AUSTRALIA, and is a Ford EQUIVALENT. Ford is actually pretty good in Australia, but HOLDEN IS THEIR COMPETITOR.
The Holden Monaro is pretty cool.
1. Australian made midsize sedan, also the base for the new Pontiac GTO
People say the new GTO is crap, but it is true to its roots: a sports car based on an existing car(new - monaro, old - tempest)
Greatest muscle car ever built. If anyone out there thinks that American Muscle is the greatest then you obviously have never heard of a HK or HT Monaro. Miles ahead of the rest anyone that disses the early models deserves to be shot. Holden is a great Australian car manufacturer and is the pinnacle of excellence. Anyone that drives around in a Ford has just wasted their money.
Dazza: Mate is that a 1969 HT Monaro GTS 350?
Macca: Sure is!
Wazza: That is the f*cking greatest car ever!
Seppo: That car makes my Dodge look like shit
A crappy looking car that looks like it was made in the twenties.
HAHA! That guy is driving a Monaro.
