Id call it an investment rather than a waste.

Can you imagine what this will be worth in 10-20 years time?

Providing the monaro name stays retired.

It will go for over half a million and end up overseas thats for sure.

the colour is plastered over the dials inside and makes it look disgusting.

Least its for a good charity I suppose.
Personally I'm glad its over, I mean the monaro as a name won a couple of bathurst races back in the pre-70's but I dont really remember them doing any good in anything since.
Theyre just sort of the 2-door booner weapon of choice for miscreants with a much over-rated self-importance of themselves that some marketing types tell the general public 'its a legend' and the shallow, self concious nobodys who've never owned a fast car (and generally know jack shit about cars) can go and instantly 'get some street cred' with other petrol heads by owning one.

I had a loaner of a 5.7L one last year, rolling on 19' tyres it handled like a boat, was even worse performance than my Sil in 0-100 and had THE worst visibility out the rear, front and sides than any other coupe I've ever owned.
They are a serious hunk of brake-warping, crap fuel economy, caravan towing, cheap fittings, lousy handling, shit.

in 10 years time it will be a classic piece of turd

and the same people who will pay 180K for a piece of turd now, will also pay for the classic piece of turd in 10 years time, so i geuss your right it will be worth more then to some :P

Its going to be a collectable regardless of how bad the car is.

Its no where near as bad as most think. Depends what you expect I guess.
100% of the procedes are going to charity so it doesn't matter what they are selling as long as it sells :P
Holden has done alot for local charities comapred to other comapnies of the same size.

I think it was scathing who went to a holden dealer asking about a test drive (before he got a freefiddy), and they told him you cant have a test drive, as potential owners already ready know if they will buy it or not before they walk in. :lol: :lol:

My general manager has one, its an orange thing with nostrils :lol: :lol:
