HAHAHA very true. The GTO doesnt look as bad as the GTS but still, hahahaha yeah they are ugly.

Seriously though, I too have seen quite a few Monaros, there is one yellow parked across the road from work at the holden dealership. seen a few red and green ones on the road too.

Relax mate, they're all trading-in their Clubsport or SS to get the new shape monaro.It looks good, and it will have the same design for few years. No body will buy the older shape VX now, not before the VY anyway.
I reckon they look nice though:s1

I don't think the HSV coupes are ugly - they just spoil the good natural looks of a stock Monaro.

It would be interesting to see the sales figures but I think Holden would of sold more Monaros already then Tickford have sold T Series in total.

I agree, although I have not seen a HSV Coupe yet.

Personally I think the VT Concept Coupe looked better, but nevertheless they need to be more agressive looking.

Kinda like these

I think first of all the person who designed the monaro should have his/her ass kicked. Alot of people may disagree with this but i think it is far too "plane jane" for the monaro name. I think it should have been much more of an eye catcher. That said if they wrote monaro on the side of a gemini it would sell!

I think the second person too get their ass kicked should be the person in charge of advertising for the T series.... were are all our aggressive ads, the monaro video game one (I dont think i have seen an ad for it at all!). Even the XR8 ad on the salt pans is pretty average...

I was in myers today and saw three pairs of monaro boxer shorts which i must admit looked cool. I just hope ford get their act togethor with advertising for the AV.
