The Holden Monaro has always been known as one of Australia's top offerings, going all the way back to 1968 when it was first introduced. This particular Monaro features the 308 cubic inch engine (that's 5.0L to us Moderners) and underwent an eight year restoration. Now if only I could get the hang of shifting with my left hand.
