Lakeside Classic: Bob Jane's 1971 Holden HQ Monaro GTS 350

September 20, 2017

Yes, you are looking at my dream car, but brought up to early 1970's race-specifications. The General Motors Holden weapon of choice was the diminutive Torana at the time, so just a handful of Monaros were tasked with track work.

The HQ Series HQ was built from Jul 1971 to Oct 1974. This HQ coupe was built in 1971. It has a 5,735cc V8 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
