I had the chance to see the real car in California, a few years ago! I was really impressed by its size! :)

Excellent addition, mate!

You were quick on the Next 100! I am still in doubt if I should get it or not. I like the real thing but the model is a bit off as we discussed in Odds news thread... Great photos though!

It's hard not to be tempted by the sheer style, colour combinations, and flamboyance of those cars.

i went there now, and left a comment...as i was saying, i like the model even though it has no clear windows (which would have made it look more like a car than a painted shape of a car)....hopefully they will release the other version too...until then i am watching every bloody day for the schuco hommage 3.0 csl and 328....of course also for the mb gt vision...i have a feeling they are gonna be in late this year or next year....
until then, let's have a closer look at the holden hg monaro gts from autoart, with many thanks to Martin who helped me get those beauties.

Good to see the Monaro Claudiu.

BMW is a good design, are you happy with the 1:1?

That 5 Series was one of BMW's most cohesive designs ever. Touring is cool too!

Love the Holdens. Audi 80 is nice but a typical early Neo, a little off in a couple of ways.

When I was an active member of the 'Droop Snoot Group' (No that is not a Beer inflicted health problem...!), I brought a Canadian spec Firenza converted from left-hand drive to right-hand drive. The Guy I brought it from spent ages working on the car to get it to go faster and invited a few of us fellow club members around to see if anyone else had ideas as to why it was so slow.

It turned out be totally inflicted with restricted breathing equipment, a tiny carburetor to restrict fuel flow and other mechanical means to restrict the car's top speed, something perfectly normal for Canadian roads at that time (early 1970's).

When the car was delivered to my Home it was in bits with the body going into one garage and all the running gear into another garage and sadly I never got round to getting it all back together.

When the time came to pass it on due to an emergency move from my Home, nobody wanted it because it was not a runner and even the Vauxhall Heritage Centre in Luton said at first the car does not exist (all this meant was they had no records of a Canadian Firenza!), but then said they could not take it because again it was not a runner.

Its final fate is unknown because the Council who were responsible for the garages said anything left inside after I had moved, would be scrapped by them.

All I have left of it now are parts salvalged while I had the chance and at least One, possibly Two pictures of the car while unloading when I first brought it. The pictures are with my Vauxhall toy and model collection in storage at a different location to where I am living at the moment, so they are not likely to appear on the forum just yet, sorry.

While there may be some styling similarities between the Monaro and Firenza, the Monaro was a much bigger car, being built on the same platform as the large-size Holden Kingswood. It was only ever available with inline-6 or V8 engines. The car was GM-Holden's primary weapon in local touring car racing, winning the Bathurst 500mile race in 1968 (HK GTS327) and 1969 (HT 350GTS). Typical of large Australian cars of the time, it had plenty of power but questionable handling and brakes. It was replaced as the front-line Holden racer in 1970 by the smaller 6-cylinder Torana. The road going Torana was originally based on the HB Vauxhall Viva but developed by Holden into an effective 6-cylinder car, and in later guises a successful V8 racer.

This is a nice model Claudiu, but as a old Ford-man I am waiting for the Falcons to appear!
