Holden Monaro 1978 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Monaro here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Local model Monaro vs foreign variants

    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.

  • 2002 Monaro with many problems

    Your complaint is with the mechanic who did the repairs, and you should pursue it through legal means, which appears to be what you are doing.

  • Piston slap in Holden Monaro

    You'd need to have an experienced mechanic listen to the noise to determine if it's piston slap or not. The LS1 certainly rattled on cold starts due to piston slap, and it used oil, they were the giveaways to a problem with the engine. Yours could have some piston slap, but your description suggests it's not serious, and certainly if the engine isn't oil to any degree I wouldn't be concerned. The noise could also be a worn lifter, that's why you need someone with experience to listen to it.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra 1969 Holden Monaro GTS

    For starters the mechanics are conning you by offering you so little to buy the car, it’s worth much, much more than that. The Monaro GTS 350 is a very desirable model, and yours is a very appealing colour/trim combination with low mileage. Depending on the condition it could be worth as much as $100,000. It could be fitted with LPG and it would run well, but I would urge you most strongly not to do it, as it would affect the originality of the car and in my view reduce its value. Even though the tyres might be cracked, and perhaps unroadworthy, they could actually add to the value of the car if they were the original tyres as fitted at the factory in 1969, so don’t discard them. Finally, you can sell the car without a RWC, but state on the transfer papers that the car is sold ‘as is’ without the roadworthy and the buyer is then responsible for getting the RWC.
