WE posted a web yarn about a punter trying to sell a CV6 Monaro with a Toyota 2JZ swapped into it. As you might expect, our Facebook followers slammed their keyboards into high gear to respond.
Martin Pascoe – Following for the onslaught of hate. Should be hilarious.
Daniel Connelley – When you wanna be a Supra fanboy but bogan is life.
David John – At least it’s a much better engine than the standard one.
Shannon Barrett – At least it’s not a Barra.
Glenn Burney – A better option than the rotary Holden used.
Daniel McCarron – What a waste of a good engine.
Paul Trandos – JZ the world.
Josh Ryan – I’m totally OK with this.
Dave Alexander – This is best sort of cross-breeding.
Joseph Vecchio – Way to ruin a good Aussie car.
Tony Sander – Needs a Lexcen badge.
Ali Elhassan – WTF is wrong with people?
Jason Jones – Why?
Glen Pettingill – Wahhhh. Let the bloke that owns it do what he wants! He can torch it for all I care!
Lincoln Godwin – I’m OK with 2JZ, but those back tyres?
Eric Cain – Barra swaps are the past, this is the future.
Bev Hauritz – That’s cool. Probably go harder than the mang-mang engine anyways.
Shane Smith – The 2JZ probably doesn’t leak oil like it’s going out of fashion, and burn more oil than fuel.
Ted George – Woulda put a built V6 in myself but not a bad idea.
Brendan Wilcox – This is worth nothing now.
Kyle Grieg – Originally a V6, won’t ever be worth much.
Robert Taylor – In 30 years they will be kicking themselves for wasting a Monaro with a chop suey engine when they see how much an original Monaro will be worth.
Brendon Anforth – That’s a bold assumption that a plastic Commodore will last another 30 years. Let’s see how that pans out.
Steve Eason – A comment up further says they are $14-24,000 now. Say this was a $14,000 one with a dead engine. Say it will be worth $100,000 in 30 years. So $86,000 over 30 years is $55 a week. I’d get more than $55 a week worth of fun out of a 2JZ Monaro than parking my $14,000 in the garage for 30 years so I can have an extra few dollars when I’m 70.
Levi James Taylor – It was a V6 Monaro, worth FA already. Probs worth more now, considering everything still works.
Brandon Bishop – Car was clearly built with fun and power in mind, not dust and future value. Each to their own. Best Monaro out I reckon.
Andrew Jakovich – This is how to make a Holden more reliable and powerful.
Steve Turkington – At least it’s fast now.
Brett Haslett – Beyonce is having twins in a Monaro…2JZs!
