The Little Red Car That Could — Performance - it'll leave black lines no prob, brakes are a little soft but ya get used to them, no power steering. Build quality - just had a complete rebuilt 202 put in it with a 350 holly carb, 2.1/4 exhust system Appearance - Razberry pearl in colour, with bone white lather interior cost of ownership - prob runs a bit rich on fuel (cant be sure the fuel gauge is wrong) fun factor - 11 out of 10 stars, my favourite ride :)

Pros: the respect you get from everyone

Cons: no power steering

Chris's 1977 Lx Torana — Performance - 7 seconds to 100 atm, acceleration through all greats is great, brakes arent the best lol, handles suprisingly good. Build quality - few minor details could be better. Appearence - love the original interior retrimed in a new colour and customised vn ss front seats, stereo is insane =D, i like the exterior without the badges and chrome around the windows and tail lights, love how it looks with everything just matchs perfectly with the new wheels aswell and lowered ride height. Cost to owner - fuel lol uses alot but who really cares, on the freeway average 10L per 100km, even if you didnt manintain the engine it would never stop or give up on you heaps reliable. Fun factor - its always fun to drive every little part makes it so good to drive all the time dont think most people would get that, classic cars have there own unique characteristics so its more interesting to drive. plus everyone seems to like looking at it makes you feel good about what you,ve made.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: To many to list.

Cons: Can not think off one...maybe the original brakes.

Ls1 Torana — the only thing that i do not like about the Torana is the colour and the rims trim is original but neat, so far it has cost me roughly 15k with much more to go. great to drive. 11 ltrs/100km and thats on a 315kw maffless tune.

Pros: the engine, gearbox, diff and 120 ltr droptank

Cons: the colour and the rims

Holden Torana — Has red 202 with M21 gearbox. Has been sanded back to bare steel and has been painted the original mandarin red. Has enough horses under the bonnet for me at the moment. it is made from 100% steel and looks great and only costed $1000. For a first car i recommend them. And they car a Classic Australian Car.

Pros: Looks Great with the flair kit

Cons: NONE

Classic Aussie Muscle — First built in the late 1960's. Claim to fame first driven to victory by Legend Peter Brock at Bathurst, 6 cyl beat the Ford V8's of the day. Prized by street racers as relativly light car able to handle blown V8's under the hood without too many mod's required. Last model in built in "78".

Pros: Fully sic!!

Cons: Parts becoming expensive and hard to find

Fast, Reliable And Quick — This car is a true muscle car. It has all the high end speed and just itches to go fast when your only doing 40-50 km/ph.

Pros: Fast, looks good, very solid reliable car

Cons: Petrol costs a fortune it becomes expensive to maintain especially for parts considering its age
