Re: Holden Hurricane???

Your links didn't work for me. But if your talking about "The Hurricane", this was a Holden concept car from 1969 it was powered by the then new 253 V8 motor.......as well as a load of "conceptual features", it was well ahead of it's time.

Luckily, it didn't make it into full production.

Re: Holden Hurricane???

interesting, i think it looks pretty good except for the rear wheel arch (or lack of)
sounds like a decent concept

Re: Holden Hurricane???
