This far away Continent would have developed a car culture close to that of the southern states of the USA, however, the only major local manufacturer through alliances was of Germanic origin, but with strong American mechanics: Opel. Following the same policy as the Detroit giants Holden presented a "Muscle-car" in the 70s, the Monaro, just returned to the range, tamed and civilized. Second, a reinterpretation of the Chevrolet ElCamino, the Ute Pick-up sport, derived from the Calibra and equipped with a solid V8. This historical heritage is complemented by the Ascort coupe, the Buckle and especially the Bolwell, dear to the hearth of true Aussies gentlemen drivers.
