Yep, if I ever go to Australia, I'm buying one of those.

Sounded like he had some steep gearing.
If 8Ball could get rear wheel like traction, it would be able to pull that time.

I was wondering why the MPH was so low on it. But the RWD explains it all. That is still a VERY respectable time for a 3.8.

Truth be told, 8-Ball is probably making more power than that thing.
Something to be said for RWD, steep gearing, small/wide tires, and a weight advantage.
GM is STUPID for not bringing them here.

Sweetness, That would be a nice car to have if it was left hand drive; even though I can I've ever seen the interior on one.

IMO they were smart not to.

They tried it with the GTO, taking the Holden Monaro which had a great rep in Aus. and then bringing it here to make it uglier and flop.
