Default Very Excited with info and questions....

Well I am very excited about this car from looking at the holden monaro pictures gallery and reading all of the press releases.

http://www.holden.com.au/www-holden/...d=5&catid=1004

Questions:
1. How are they going to offer this car at 30-35K as promised?

holden quotes $55K for their V-8 Version. My biggest hope was that the interior would be left unmolested except for switching from LHD, and my biggest fear is that Pontiac will Put a shitty GM interior in it to save some of the 20K. Where else are they going to cut corners?

2. Do you think there will be any sheet metal changes at all?

Hope not
I am thinking no, just new ground Fx, front and rear bumper skin. But you know Pontiacs reputation for going crazy in the plastic department (Please God no).

3. Does any-one have weight and size (wheelbase) specs from the Holden car? Is this an IRS car?

I know there are probably not going to be answers to these for a while, but I am excited. If Pontiac will leave most of the sheetmetal alone and do a tasteful plastic trim job (Like the T/A). This car will be badass. I will be the first in line to trade in the Mustang. Could care less if it is LS-1 Or LS-6.
