being a traditional Statesman lover and having owned 5 different models I never really warmed to these in the day..but I wish I bought one when they were quite cheap - around 2000...they have good asking prices these days - not sure what they actually sell for though...the HDT managed to get good performance with the Magnum for not a real lot of effort..demonstrating quite a bit of unleashed potential in the blue 308 at the time...have often thought about making some enhancements to my stock 308 along the same lines as what HDT did but then I think whats the point chasing say 180Kw compared to modern run of the mill family cars that higher still - so settle for the published whopping 126Kw...and plod around...

Al at about 2.30 or so of this you tube vid Brocky is saying that it was only about 2 seconds slower around Calder than the commodore...I've had a couple of WB and HZ Statesmans and even in standard guise they handle quite well for a big car and def punched well above the alternate local competition at the time in the handling stakes....https://www.youtube....
