Roger, you may have hit the nail on the head, the GM cars didn't take.Man, what a little monster! Why is it Aussies have all the coolest cars.
At least GM tried to bring some of those awesome down under cars in to our country. The Holden Monaro, badged the GTO here, LS-2's tuned to 400+hp, fully independent rear suspension, will take or at least stay with anything made here, but, they didn;t "take" at all.
To Cavalierish looking maybe, but, that Falcon, I'd order one right now!
And there's the G-8, i think its simply a Holden Commodore, another down under creation
We did loose two strips locally for a short time but they're both back up and running again. We're also gaining one by Pomona hosting an NMRA event this later this year and not just NHRA stuff.Roger, you may have hit the nail on the head, the GM cars didn't take.
Even with the success of the new breed of pony cars, we're not the car crazy culture that we used to be.
Now, too many think it's more fun to play video games rather than wash and wax a car. And, with the price of gas, cruyising just for fun gets expensive for today's youth.
I read somewhere that some dragstrips in Ca are closing down.
Consider that Ca was once THE crazy state for carnuts.
I've always envied you guys in Ca.We did loose two strips locally for a short time but they're both back up and running again. We're also gaining one by Pomona hosting an NMRA event this later this year and not just NHRA stuff.
California is still the car mecca it's always been and I'm not seeing that change any time soon! :tup:
You see a lot more of the (FORD PERFORMANCE VEHICLES) utes than sedans around same with GMH (HOLDEN SPECIAL VEHICLES) utes with our tax system the tradies can claim them and the fuel so what tradie wouldn't own a high performance V8.awesome, would love to have one of them or a ute of the same style.
