1981 Opel Monza Review
Best On Straight Roads — I had two of these, the other being a new 1985 GSE. The Monza had a unique shape in those days although it looks a bit ungainly now against modern coupés. The 3-litre was solid but more of a workhorse than anything sporty, especially with the useless auto gearbox on the older one. Very comfortable and simple to fix when things went wrong.
Pros: Nice back end
Cons: Grotty front end
