GTS Monaro

Model: 

Hey Guys. What do you think of this? Followed it the other day and thought to my self. Man I gotta get a snap of it. Not to sure what model it was, if someone can tell me, I thought it was a HK GTS Monaro or something isnt it its got the little bonnet scoops and all? One thing I do know is its got a Warm Eight under the hood, and it sounds FANTASTIC!
Cheers Guys Rob

Yeah man its sex on wheels ahy. I saw it driving around Christchurch, so I followed him home, I wont say where I took the photo, but I'll be going back, and getting a frontal shot. I had a squiz inside, and its beautiful in there. Looks just like its rolled outta the plant.
Should ask the guy who owns it if he can take me for a drive in it. "SIGH"

So you are a Christchurch resident heh? Any where near nth Lynwood?. You would probably be familar with the original 'HOON AUTO GEAR " artist Darryl McKenzie... This is the area he dwells in. I flew Darryl over from CHCH to here in Brissie to apply his mastery upon my FC Coupe - check it out in the sheds/galleries under streetneat...I am making noises about getting over to CH CH again for another dose of McKenzie art...That monaro is a HT - front guards give it away(badge placement) and the tailights are HT ...btw -I am not a kiwi - just surrounded by them...They like sheep so they cant be all bad... Thats not far away from liking goats...cheers streetneat

G'day mate. Yeah Im a Christchurch person, and yeah, this picture was taken close to the north Lynwood area. As to Darryl Mckenzie, cant say I have heard of him, but I'll keep an eye out. And yes, I have seen ya FC Coupe. I must say, that looks the part. Great job man. "TOPS" And yeap Sheep are GOOD! Funny how you chaps over there in the "west island" seem to give kiwis a hard time about sheep. Theres more sheep in aussie then over this way you know.

p.s
Q : How'd the Australian find the sheep in the grass??
A : "Nice"

Q : What do you call an Australian with a sheep under one arm, and a goat under the other?
A : Bisexual!

Muhahaha

West island try mainland - I did mention I am surrounded by kiwis.. wifes one and so is my painter graham....One moves very carefully here...Hmmm sheep/goat jokes are borderline (or is that fenceline) below belt references of a sexual nature are a bit of a sore point on this site ATM ... so we keep it in the paddock... so to speak...BTW ... We say mehh mehhh ... rather than Muhahahaha... Its an accent thing you know...Try our new lounge area under streetneat made me do it... and whilst you are in there can you feed the goats and make sure the fridge is still plugged in - yogie was having trouble with this... cheers streetneat...

Mate try living over here...there's always a kiwi joke, but the problem is i've heard them time and time again (always the same ones). Hey they (no offence intented fella's) are pritty facinated by sheep over here, hell they have a museum (great southern wool shed)and a poem featuring a sheep (waltzing matilda). But have to admit some of the jokes are pritty funny. I just know I'm not gonna live this one down (being a kiwi).

A calling card is a super idea. Pearler idea even.

Sandy and I have discussed other methods of advertising. If you notice we don't advertise in any other medium other than the Internet. Most users come after they have used and clicked a link in a search engine. There is some method to this as users that come have a certain level of computer experience...it is better you have some computer experience here as we do things differently and some things are quite complicated.

We discussed doing calling cards at car shows mainly.
We are close to using other mediums for marketing.
Sandy would love more ideas too.

While your on the topic of SM, check out Frank Pudarich's showstoppping LH in the January issue and all his trophies in the Feb issue. He's my cousin's cousin(?) and him and his father run Frank's Paint and Panel at Austral.

A great idea Sandy

, have all ready sent a rough idea through email, and this is the cheapest form of advertising and the most effective way also, because everybody likes something for nothing all be it a card but this stuff works, lets face it every person has someones business card .....hang on a sec...I have 4 different in my wallet alone, see it does work.

Its Not That I Hate People,
I Just Feel Better When They're Not Around!

Parts Peddler has a section for club adverts (free I believe), and other on-line car related sites advertise their URL and give a short description about the sites activities.
Might be worth looking into......

Rebodied? when did it become legal to swap the tags?

Yes the tail lights are HT, but some people prefer the HT tail lights over the HG items. These are a commonly replaced item(admittedly not so much on Monaros). Therefore conclusions cannot be made on siting tail lights alone.

Just a thought...

I'm pretty certain that its just the badges that are different, But then again I could be wrong. On this note, Am I correct in saying that the HK GTS bonnet didn't have scoops wheras the HT-G did?

yes the guards are the same for all models, the HK didn't have bonnett scoops, and the 'racing' stripes were different too, and some colours on the hubcaps.
