MOD­ERN MUS­CLE

Street Machine - - Your Stuff -

HI GUYS, just fin­ished read­ing your July is­sue and was re­ally pleased to find a write-up on the mod­ern Monaro! I own a 2004 CV8-R with 90,000km on the clock. It is ba­si­cally stan­dard ex­cept ex­haust and Maf­less tune.

Any­way, there are a few points you got wrong about the CV8-R. The first CV8-R was avail­able in Tur­bine Mica Grey only, and only 350 were pro­duced, 140 of which were man­ual. These were Se­ries II. Other Commodore mod­els were avail­able in this colour. The 2004 CV8-R was a Se­ries III, which had a run of 320 units and only came in Pulse Red – the only Holden re­leased in Aus­tralia with this colour code (they were sent to the US as Pon­tiac GTOS in this colour). The man­ual/au­to­matic split was very sim­i­lar to the ear­lier CV8-R.

I would love to see a few read­ers with later Monaros in your magazine. Syd­ney Miller, emai
