            This is the old model:

            this kinda looks like ford King Cobra mustang lol

                  i am in love with the vxr Bathurst i wish it was available here it would definitely be on my list of cars to buy. I should look into how to build my own from a Pontiac or something. shouldn't be terrible hard.

                      What I can think of off the top of my head are
                      Old falcon
                      Commodore ute(pickup)
                      Falcon ute (pickup)

                      Australia really only has two makers we claim as our own ford and holden(gm)
                      the build it started as show and quickly turned into GO!

                        yea we kinda got all the motors you guys ditched ls1, ls2, buick v6, probably some ford stuff? shoved it into some terribly build chassis and called them australian. so everyone who was anyone went out and bought a japanese car and lived happily ever after.

                        ok weve made the odd decent chassis and the lsx isnt a terrible engine.
                        Current na-t supra making 350 ish, 8.7 second 1/8th mile
                        500hp na-t build in the works

                          Really wish Holden and Ford would make some muscle cars would love to have a 2013 Torana but we are stuck with just JDM and euro cars ='(

                            I wish America brought some aussie muscle here. especially older styles that would be fantastic.
