    Building a Coupe 60

    Not sure where to put this. Seeing as Holden no longer produce the Monaro/GTO, and this concept car by Holden is as close as we'll see to one for a while, I put it in here. Sarge, Orion, feel free to put it somewhere else if I've stuffed up.

    This is not my project, but a guy not too far from me. I'm pretty sure Rattler knows him. He has started with an R8 HSV Clubsport body (Pontiac G8) with the aim to turn it into something like this...

    That Coupe60 is awesome. The HSV cars are, IMO, raw

    No worries. I think if you have the tools and the know how, the expense would be minimal, or as low as it could get.

    I've pm'd the guy about the headlight upgrade he did to his wifes car, same as the new Audi's. Considering it for my car...

    I'm thinkin ragtop conversion. Look at the back window. Alot smaller than our factory rear window. Looks widebody as well. Maybe Ram Air 6/droptop?

    I have thought long and hard about buying another goat copying my widebody and cutting it into a convertable. I bet GM could have doubled GTO sales if they would hsve sold a droptop version

    Not a goat. Started life as a Holden Commodore 4 door. HSV made another concept that was called GTS-R that this guy is also copying. Not quite my taste, but I admire the skill and workmanship gone into turning this garden variety sedan into a grumpy looking hatch back...

    HSV concept...



    Wayne's version...
