Street Machine mag
I am a huge fan of the mag. Even have the front bumper off of their EA coupe on my car. Although in the lastest issuse when they have the T vs GTO did any else get the impression that after driving both cars they thought that the T series was better but they didnt want to admit it?! refering to how good the HSV looks in comparision and how the T has "off the shelf wheels"
I know a HSV engineer was a test driver but still.....
The last paragraph
"At the end of70 kays of hard-driven blacktop some conclusions were inevitable. The GTO benefits from having a beautiful donor-car shape and HSV takes the two door BLAH BLAH.... It costs more, and to most onlookers is a more desirable looking suit of armour. The TE50 is Tickfords's most aggressive car yet, in terms of power and looks, but has the performance to back up its big-winged promise. And it will hurt your hip pocket less for a more rewarding drive.
THE BEST PART!!!!!!!
If you could drive blind it'd be the car you'd pick, other senses would tell you that. It hauls, hangs on and hollers.
But dollars aside, old biases will no doubt prevail at the dealerships and GTO will easily outsell TE50. Whether it deserves to.....................
In other words the TE50 is a better car, but because of holdens media hype of the two-door it will sell better?
Personally i think the front of the GTO is terrible.
I hope i dont get in trouble from SM for typing that in...
What do you all think?:dog3:
