Aussie Muscle Car

Gday.
This my Aussie Muscle Car.
Its a 1971 Holden HQ GTS 350 Monaro
#350 chev with alloy heads,hi-rise manifold and a 750 barry grant
#T400
#9in with 4.11's
#11.2et at 120mph

The late 60's and early 70's Monaro's in Australia could be compared to the Camaro's and Chevelles in the USA.
The lastest edition of the Monaro(sadly discontinued) was exported to the USA as the Pontiac GTO.
Hope you enjoy these pics of a true Aussie Muscle Car.

Sweet! I never even knew Holden was making cars back then. Looks more like an AMX than a Camaro or Chevelle to me.

I didnt mean it looked like a Camaro or Chevelle,i meant it has the same status and street cred in Australia as being a muscle car as those cars also have in US.
