*NEW* Holden Statesman








Its kinda depressing for Holden to produce a over glorafied Caprice...... Its better than a cown vic though.

That back end is *ugly*.

Not much for the token wood veneer, either.

Spyder, it's called "understated elegance." I like it.

Do you have to be at least 65 years old to buy it? Looks like an old man's car.

Yeah a Statesman is like an old mans car. Kinda the same market as a town car. They use the GEN3 engine that is from the Corvette. These are nice cars, but have really bad resale value.

And for Halx benefit here are some pix of the sports model that holden make. Uses thet same engine and makes just over 300hp.

first of all, im fairly shocked to see this aussie classic here.

is holden even sold in the US? or is it rebadged as Pontiac? can someone fill me in here...?

the Statesman has always been the high end holden. for the successful businessman who still enjoys the strength and reliability of a holden.

the SS is sexy...

although i prefer the GTO and GTS (and the monaro, of course)

heres the GTS

and the GTO


btw, in the course of researching these pics, i kind of answered my above questions.
from what i just gathered, Holdens are changed slightly and rebadged as Pontiacs in the US (i think - please tell me if this is wrong).

Yeah that right, holden are just starting to sell the Monaro in the US. Badged as a Pontiac. They have had some pretty mixed reviews. I cant remember where I was reading it, but some yanks are kicking up a fuss about a aussie built Pontiac. Holden are exporting cars like the statesman to the middle east. Rebadged as Chev Lumina (i think). They are selling really well, cause they love the v8 powered long wheel base cars there. I guess that it just goes to show how far the aussie made cars have come in the past 10 years.

Yeah i heard some yanks were pissed that the monaro looked too 'bland' for their liking, like it wasnt worthy to wear the GTO badge

That front end looks to much like a Cavalier of a Honda Civic.
