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!

One of the greatest Australian cars of all time. First produced in 1967, the Torana would become an Australian icon, thanks greatly to Peter Brock and his many victories at Bathurst. 1977 brought about the LX model, which allowed buyers the A9X option. A fuckin beast. 308 Holden V8 with performance brakes and exhaust. The UC model was a fuckin shit heap. Still better than anything from Japan. Now a highly sort after vehicle and a dream addition to any true Australian garage.
Robbo and his fuckin Holden Torana are doing doughies at the Woodridge High School oval.
