GRAND PLANS FOR A SPECIAL MONARO
I am 65 years young and thinking about buying a Holden Monaro as a special car. I’m looking from early 2001 to 2006 and a V8 auto. What are your thoughts on what year to buy, what mileage, what should I look for on common problems, and what I should expect to pay?

Personally, I like the VZ CV8 from about 2005, provided you can get one in good condition with relatively low kilometres. There are plenty for about $45,000 and the kilometres are generally low as other people also like them as a special car.
