If they call that a Torana, I'll be insulted. I owned a Torana and they are one of the most fun and aggressive cars to drive with the narrower wheel track and longish wheel base for the vehicle class. THAT looks like a pansie car built for someone who can't drive. Give me an XU-1 any day even if it doesn't have the horse power. At least you know your driving.

Yeah Stu - but if we slip past the piss & vinegar.. :yellowbounce:

..and look at it another way..

..it's made to go at the M3.. and other mid sized proddy cars..

..perhaps you'll be able to watch Bathurst again :purplebounce:

Must have had nothing new to write about as this car did the rounds in 2004.

2004 Torana

Should have read the article but I knew I had spotted it previously.

I was awake and trying to sneak into the drive while my brother was puking his guts up after driving a rice burner. He thinks he can drive cause he can do mediocre lap times with no-one else on the track :yellowbounce: :purplebounce: :lbluebounce:

Better get out and buy some of those old Toranas while ya can , the prices will only go up if Holden eventually do release a new Torana , look what happened when they re released the Monaro now ya have to sell the house to buy an early model Monaro.

I seem to recall another image of the ugly beast posted on another thread. Could've been the Scalex range 2012 or something similar.

Yup. That's the one. Looks even worse from the other end.
