To Americans, there’s a weird mirror-world aspect to cars made by Detroit car companies in Australia; you can tell you’re looking at a GM product when you see an old Holden, for example, because you can usually spot a little Chevelle/Nova/Impala influence in the body lines, but everything just seems a little… off. Let’s watch the ’70 Holden line conquering the Outback and wowing the ladies.
Country music, Monaros hauling ass, an HG equipped with a genuine 3-speed automatic. This ad has everything.
Meanwhile, GM at home compared the ’70 Nova to O.J. Simpson. Upshot: The Nova is a better automobile than O.J.
I think if I were crazy enough to look for an Australian car to bring to these shores (and I am), I’d go for a Valiant Charger instead of a Holden, if only so I could have a car with a Hemi-6 engine.
