Saw a Monaro Yesterday

8 posts in this topic

Initially thought it was an ordinary GTO until I took a second look. First time I've spotted a Monaro in the states (first time I've seen a Monaro in person, for that matter). Interesting to see, though the Pontiac front-fascia is more attractive and aggressive IMHO. Anyone else ever seen one on our shores?

Werd... I saw a beautiful black GTO today, which is still a rare car around here.

As far as the Monaro, it's possible to convert a GTO into one. Only the bumper shell (which includes the grille), wheels, and badging are different. Was it left hand drive?

From what I've heard, there have been a few bulk orders of Monaro trim pieces from various groups of GTO owners.

Back in '02, I saw 2 Commodores and a Monaro (all RHD with Michigan Mfgr plates) up close in a Borders bookstore parking lot in the Denver area.. all were dark gray with Holden badging..it was pretty cool..probably testing prototypes for the GTO then.

I also agree that the Pontiac GTO's have a Meaner looking front bar to them.. its just more sportier and meaner than our australian monaro.. but hey.. what can ya do?
