Purr Pull the Other One: 1972 Holden HQ Monaro GTS Coupe

April 07, 2016

Spotted in Ipswich, QLD during my last visit home was this beautiful purple Holden Monaro GTS Coupe. Without question, the HQ Holden (1971 - 1974) is my favourite car.

The HQ Series HQ was built from Jul 1971 to Oct 1974. This HQ Coupe was built in 1972. It has a 5,047cc 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>
