HICK, yes virtually Australian for chev (General Motors Holden) alot of Holdens came out of the factory with chev motors, turbo 350 and 400's in them. I also beleive you guys will be receiving our newest Holden Monaro shortly renamed as a Pontiac, two door coup, 350 alloy chev and suchlike.

I don't have alot of hp, but I don't share my garage with anything else.... the wr 400 gets the whole thing!!! I keep the other stuff in the Bomb shelter.... Well it used to be a bomb shelter in the 40's, anyway now it's a jam room and wouldn't shelter anything except the noise that I make when I'm playing inside :)

You guys are loaded!!! Sheeeesh, I neglected to add in my 8 horse Craftsman chipper vac, but after reading these posts I see it makes little difference! :)

Blue Beast Wins, don’t you ever get tired of winning? Would it be considered a garage or warehouse that you store your toys! :D I guess if it’s still residential it’s just considered one big a$$ garage. What new vehicle these days has 455 hp? Just curious, nice collection BTW!

Unfortunatly some of my toys over flow into my four car, car port, yes in a residetial area, my 455hp 308 motor is awaighting a new to me vehicle it used to be in my Monaro but being my wife uses it all the time, it was costing me heaps in rear rubber, dont play with the four wheel toys as much now, i'd rather ride the WR.

You Aussies are spoiled by horsepower. Or KW is it? If GM sold cars like the Holdens here in the states, we'd need autobahns! You guys get Corvete engines in your sedans! and the "white-trash" el-camino is not dead over there, just called a ute. AHH I'm jealous. :)

We've got some great competition going on here between Holden and Ford at the moment, so the manufacturers keep trying to give us more horse power or KW as the case may be, I LOVE IT!!!

Also, just bought two more vehicles today, only to sell, but still in my car port at this present time,
84 Ford Lazer 120hp
89 Ford Fairmont 215hp
Read and weep boys.

It is a pitty that they are crap cars and heavy buckets of $hit!
They are built very sloppy.

My honda Integra type r blows them all away! :applause:
You can't beat the japanese! :ride:

I wonder how much horse power my F250 V-10 has?

I'm going to bet a little less than my 7.3 L powerstroke Excursion with the super chip :applause:

yes matty you are right. don't they even have pushrods? as technologically advanced as your average harley,

they had to ban jap cars from our touring car series to let holden and ford in the results. i have heard there are jap v8's maybe coming into it.

but it does make good even racing,
like taxis.

japs are best manufacturers.

have to admit though the monaro looks tough and sounds good.

my list
99 camry 95 hp
89 camry 80hp
Datsun 1200 ute 50hp? on a good day
wr 400 45 hp
ttr230 25? hp
2 x pw 80 (not sure)
1x 6 hp big bob mower
1x whipper snipper 65cc
stihl cahinsaw 36cc
pioneer saw 23cc

always a petrol tank needin feedin

Monaro - $60,000! For a commodore!
It does look good though. But there would have to be sooo many other cars that are way better for cheaper.
Two that come to mind:
:ride: Subaru WRX STI - $56,990
:p Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Euolution 9 - $56,789
No doubt these would hold value way better too! :applause:
