Local model Monaro vs foreign variants

The new Holden Monaro was sold in the USA as the Pontiac GTO, in the UK as a Vauxhall Monaro VXR, and in South Africa as a Chevrolet Lumina. Is there any advantage to buying one of these exports as a classic?

If only we had a crystal ball. Unfortunately it's impossible to say with any certainty if the foreign variants of the Monaro will become classics. If any do I would guess it would be the Pontiac with its connections to the GTO, Vauxhall's image in Australia is one of a cardigan wearing, pipe-puffing old timer, and the Chevrolet Lumina doesn't get the pulse racing.
