Not quite a 4WD item , but has anyone seen the auction on E Bay for the last Monaro.I checked it out at 7.45pm (SA) time and the bid was at $900,000- CAN NOT BELIEVE IT.

For a short moment ( 3.4578 second in fact ) I thought of putting a bid in for the front left wheel . Soon realised I could not afford it. so dream on.

Its only a car Not even a 4WD . Just imagine what $900.000 could do to a 4WD.

Just checked the site again and its over $1,000,000- Can not believe there are people out there with that sort of money to waste on a car

Check out the Last Monaro

Regards

Terry

It'll be pulled as a joke by eBay.

People are being dumb and bidding idiotic amounts, so the poor charity (Leukaemia Foundation) is the only loser. Pity.

I agree. More money than brains, Worse still it's not a Ford.
I just had a look at the page and I hope it is a typo but the bid stands at $10,000,100.00. That right it reads 10 million plus. If thats for real I think the Tax man needs to investigate.

Never liked Holdens, and certainly never liked any Monaro.

When it came out, I couldn't help but think of it as a Commo (n) Door Less.

I live in the land of the Blue Oval....

The auction and the car are genuine, however some/most of the bids are bogus. To legitimately bid you must place a $250 security deposit (pre-authorisation) by credit card with www.goinggone.com.au. These verified bids are reconciled against the bogus bids to leave the genuine winner. I think the genuine current amount is over $500,000.00

I personally don't believe it will be the last Monaro, give it several years and it will be back - just like the GT Ford.

Cheers,
Jezza

Jezza, I recall seeing a GM rep on telly saying they were postponing production in the interim... They intended to sus the market out in a few years and most likely have another run at it... The cost of production made it a low profit vehicle and they were concerned about flooding the market which would devalue the vehicle...(not verbatum but pretty close)

exactly.

i believe gmh even stated this possibility themselves, while they market it in usa under another brand. my younger brother had one of the "last of the monaros", a 78 GTS. I believe they were called GTS to get around extra insurance premiums etc. maybe not? i drove fords then anyway, miss my xd fairmont ghia.......

They must REALLY want a Monaro badge.
For $80,000 you can buy a HSV GTO Coupe with the LS2 engine.
And its a 2006 model.

What a bunch of suckers.

Holden have already indicated awhile ago that the Monaro is not entirely dead and its return will be looked at once the new models are released etc.

Sought of like all those dopes that paid over $100k for the so called best of the best HP GT-R yellow submarines.

A few years later mums shopping trolley Holden had more power.

Why?
because it is a great car, it will grow in value just the way an original A9X is now worth 30K - 38K to a collector being the last ( supposed ) and with a documented history it will appreciate over time. Also being bright yellow it will be safe on pedestrian crossings in the rain.
opps sorry thats rain coats not cars. mind you 150k is well over the odds. Just on another topic as the auction is for charity can you claim your purchase price as a tax deduction?
