Monaro Accessories.

Holden cann't sell the Monaro in numbers they hoped for.
BUT :
Holden have sold 100,000 Monaro model cars.
51,000 Doona covers.
72,000 Monaro underpants !!
I do like the look of the VZ Monaro .
Holden can't guarantee there will be VE Monaro in 2006.
As sales here and in America are not what they expected.
Maybe if the didn't cost $61k + on roads, they might sell better.
They didn't learn from the Adventra debacle, over price cars and they won't sell.

Re: Monaro Accessories.

You can buy them for $50,000 on the road at the moment. Its funny how cheap these cars can become when they really do need to flog them. There must be plenty of mark up in them.

Re: Monaro Accessories.

You're right FPVT, by the sounds of the discounts they are giving, the markups must be huge.

Re: Monaro Accessories.

You would think Munro would have sold a little better, it fills a niche being the only big Aussie tudor. Unlike Adventra which is a jacked up billy cart selling for way more than its more capable competitor Territory, munro has a definate niche and particularly with hefty discounts its affordable.

Apart from the usual GM foibles, (LS1 reputation, crook auto, and suspect front end), its an ok car and those things dont stop the 4 door commie variants from selling.

Maybe ther isn't a market for big Aussie tudors afterall. I know I giggle when the rellos CV8R has to stay in the garage and they all cram into a mitsu mirage because it has 5 seatbelts.

If there is no VE munro GM may have to license munro whizz bins for a the other munro merchandise. Monaro jocks? I mean really....

Re: Monaro Accessories.

The Monaro was in high demand to start with, but the point is only so many people want this type of car, once the population of these types have got one they keep it, therefore sales drop off.

You very rarely see many of them around nowadays, specially not in the SERIES II or SERIES III, they were once the car to have, but most people that are looking in this sort of market end up with either a BMW 3 series coupe, an M3 or a CLK Mercedes.

For the price, the power, the features and the SS that sits next to them in the showroom, they are rather impractical for most buyers who want a sports car, I think the whole dream of owning one stops at the 1:18 scale for most people as the stats above prove. And if you went to buy one without realising what deals were available im sure the salesman will happily sell you one for about $60,000 on the road.

The key factor however to owning such a car is re-sale, the stats probarly arent that good but the prices out there do reflect a strong resale, bearing in mind that most of these cars have done less the 20,000 kms. I think they were more of a toy then anything else for most.
