Todays post on Summernats 2011 is all about Holdens. I've arranged the cars in roughly chronological order, the oldest car being an FC. I didn't see any earlier cars, such as FJ's or 48-215's but I'm told there were a few there. Enjoy!
There is so much work in this FB Panelvan - I think every panel has been modified. Outstanding car.
HG, HK, HT Holdens - Kingswoods and Monaros
HQ Monaro - note the airbrushed cigar vents. On the other side the standard metal vents were present. Neat touch
HQ Monaro GTS - look at the rubber on the guards! I suspect this car spent some time on the Burnout Pad (see future post).
barn find HJ Sandman
Later model Toranas
Excellent Holden Gemini (Isuzu) - Thats either a triple supercharged V6 engine or a supercharged V6 being fed by two turbos. Sounded impressive.
Holden Gemini - only one turbo...
VK Group A
A very slippery surface on parts of the EPIC roads saw a few cars lose traction momentarily - such as this VL Commodore
HDT Group Three Director
VL HSV Group A - Walkinshaw
I call this late model Statesman the reverse Mullet car. Business up the back ...
...party at the front!
Nice angle for this Statesman
I note this Monaro is street registered. I imagine the drive up the Hume from Victoria was a lot of fun. Sadly, not legal in the ACT as the exhaust exits to the left. Might be some bonnet visibility issues as well. Not a bad lineup of utes in the background either (dedicated ute post coming...)
