could have been interesting ,but the whole thing was done in a ridiculously juvenile way. I doubt anyone older than 12 would have found it either funny or interesting.
Just utter shite presented by cretins.  :(

I've already forgotten how many Monaros they said had been sold, but I was surprised at how few it was

That is an excellent summing up of a show I just cannot watch as it makes me cringe at every turn.  Definitely a programme for young, not grown up yet, men! ::) ::) :D :D ;)

The original 5.7 Monaro was always a bit 'limp-wristed'

Only about 330 BHP, and the meagre amount of torque was high up in the rev range.

6.0 version much better. :y

They start north of £10k. Anything less is usually rusty or knackered and bought for breaking. Engines alone are worth more than a nice Omega  :-X

Watched it , Monaro performed reasonably well but just looks a bit too Astra lookalike,  the TVR  sounded terrific but know all about the problems with them as my brother had one.
