The Monaro was the latest in a long line of special Holden products. Holden/HSV put in the effort back in the '80s and throughout the '90s on making increasingly exciting cars (such as the VR GTS, VT II GTS300). They built up huge enthusiasm for their products, and then produced the right 'hero' car at the right time - the Monaro.
While I hope to see Ford succeed with its new models, I don't think we'll see another car as hyped-up as the Monaro for a very long time.
