Ahhhhh the 04 goat was LS1, the 05-06 was LS2. Kind of a big deal bro. Huge upgrade. I assume Monaro had the same engines. We forgive you though. Kind of

Very good video, the "ute" was actually first designed far earlier by ford. And it was a car to take pigs to market during the week and nice enough for church on sundays, do one on the aussie ford falcons as they had alot going for them also (fastest production 4 door in the world at one point)

Was a farmer from Geelong who wanted a car to drive the pigs to market on friday and the wife to church on sunday, and wrote to the head of GM, thus the world was blessed with the first mass production Ute

Who cares about a heavy shitbox with a common af motor thats not even Australian made nor designed, needs to be a video about Falcons. The whole car in and out is Aus, unlike holden.

Many mistakes. Bathurst was never 500ks it was 500 miles until the end of 1972 then it became 1000ks. The A9X Torana was a Holden 308 CID making 400BHP in race trim with a super T10 and ten bolt Holden diff it totally dominated touring car racing through out 78 and 79. winning Bathurst 78 by 1 lap then winning Bathurst 79 by 6 laps or 37 ks starting from poll leading every single lap of the race with Peter Brock setting the fastest lap time on the last lap and incase your wondering our races here are a standing start not rolling start. Its Walkinshaw not Wilkenshaw. The VL did get the Nissan 6 but it also got the Holden 308 redeveloped for unleaded fuel. As for the 3rd gen Commodore / Monaro the sketch was based on the VT not VX and that's what the concept car was but by the time they put it in to production the VT was replaced by the VX

The VL Commodore ONLY doing 124 MPH? At maximum. for a manual, more like 144 MPH. I know this because I have been in one doing that speed. Granted this one had headers, but it was naturally aspirated, and a manual
