    "Hell, you could build a dead-nuts clone for a fraction of that money and no one would really be the wiser."
    a famous quote by Brian Lohnes.

    the death rate and fairy tales cannot kill the nature left behind.

      In the weeks leading up to this auction the local media was reporting that the current owner of this car was asking up to $3-million AUS for it. Now while I don't thing it's worth anything near that, you couldn't build it simply by fitting a 427 LS in to a Monaro. The HRT427 had a unique fabricated wishbone suspension set up, race style roll cage, massive AP Racing brakes and plenty of lightweight carbon fiber bits all from the Holden Racing Team workshops. The engine was basically a C5R racing Vette mill. Sure a very desirable and rare australian muscle car. But not $3-million worth
