• One of these passed me yesterday and sounded so good. I don't thing any non car person would even think this was a performance car. Pretty great sleeper.
    Also, the Trailblazer SS just came to my attention as being a forgotten about LS monster as well.

  • This is one of those cars where I prefer the four-door variant.

  • As introduced in Australia the Monaro had the fuel tank under the trunk floor, which is kinda traditional car design (it's not like it was the trunk floor like a Falcon/Pinto/Mustang/Fairlane/Cortina or something) but US GM decided they had to move the tank up between the rear wheels inside the trunk. So the Monaro/GTO lost a bunch of trunk space in the translation to the US market.

    It's really a shame GM shackled the Holdens – which were and are, by any measure, just about the best 'traditional American' cars ever built – to a moribund brand with a reputation for turning the plastic trim up to 11. Still, the GTO is probably a future collector car.

    I think there's a Jungle Green Chevrolet SS at the local dealer, been meaning to go look at it.

  • These seem like a performance bargain, prices have stayed about the same for the past few years so now is probably the time to pick up a low mileage example.
