Cool, Jim. When are you going to start trying to race it?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

VERY nice 400hp and TONS of torque that kicks ass. Did they offer a loan for filling it up twice a week I remember back in the day I had a IROC with a 350, that sucka must have gotten 120-150 miles per tank, of course I was beating on it the whole time Post some pics whe you get a chance. Congrats.

Congrats!

The oil companies will love you!

New 400 hp American muscle car $28,000.
New Aviator sunglasses to look cool in muscle car $200.

Second mortgage to fill it with gas for a year......Priceless!

Now the first thing to do is order new front and rear bumpers and get rid of those ugly ass pontiac ones and put the Holden ones back on like it SHOULD had already.


Why GM just didnt bring the Holden nameplate over here instead of rebadging everything I havent the clue. BTW ya should see the 05 Holden Malroo SS.

I can picture it with a big #59 on the door.

I have read some good reviews on that car. The dudes like it more than the new Mustang and the new Charger.

Actually its cheaper to just contact a salvage yard in Aus and see if they have any Holden Monaro front ends and rear bumps/tail splash panels.
