No, but it appears is if they're CEASING production. If production had just siezed, that could probably have been fixed with a few drops of oil.

There's probably some kit out there for it...or if your good with fabrication...But it doesn't look like it would take too much...

I'm saying what I think...but I feel it would be pretty true still to make it look like a GTO...Wait, I take that back, I just realized the Monaro is right hand drive...Other than that though it looks pretty similar to me...

Maybe because it's the same car? As I said, quick on the uptake.

So it's even easier than I thought, but you would still need to move the steering wheel/dash/entire thing...
