1970 Holden Torana Review
Slow As A Wet Week — This old girl was my nannas car and my first car, red 138ci (2.2L) the smallest red engine in local sold holdens, three on the tree manual(column shift) drums all round( great in the rain hehe) spanish red with antique gold trim. Didnt have enough power to pull a skin off a custard or a drunken sailor off your sister. Unfortunatly I sold her to cheep but she had verry bad cancer.
Pros: Its a Torana, was the best excuse for being late to school(car broke down again)hehe
Cons: Its a torana and at the time the cops loved nothing better than pulling over young guys driving you guessed it Toranas
