Holden Torana Loud Standing Start - Targa Tasmania 2011 Australia. Very,
very loud video of the start line. I could barely hear myself above the
engine noise. This is what you would call a muscle car in the United
States, like a Camaro
or Ford Mustang. Australia
loves producing their version of the American muscle car. I really love the
comments from everyone below about how good this sounds! This is obviously
a highly modified V8 car (or Muscle car) that sounds fantastic! The way
cars should sound me thinks!
I've written about this elsewhere on another related Holden Torana video
ripping down the road as fast as possible. Anyway, the Holden Torana is a
circa 1970's muscle car. Was great listening to the car at the starting
line here, even though I now suffer from industrial deafness! I was right
next to this beast! Back in the 1970s (yes, well over 40 years ago), the
Holden Torana was a very popular road car in Australia. It was small in
size, but had a large, loud and noisy V8 engine (called a 308) which gave
it a high power to weight ratio. Many car enthusiasts have maintained their
Toranas until this day so some of them now are collectors items and are
highly sought after by Holden fans. This was the General Motors Holden
weapon used against the massive Ford Falcon, and this is a rivalry that
exists until today
In the Targa Tasmania, there are many different categories of cars,
including ones of different capacities, sizes and eras. This can range from
classic cars to supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Petrol head
heaven! The Targa Tasmania takes place all over the state of Tasmania
around April of each year. This is quite different to dirt based rallies,
as this rally occurs on public tarmac roads and cars must be able to be
registered to be driven on public roads.
I stood next to this car at the starting line and I could barely hear
myself speak. Turning the speakers up to maximum goes nowhere near the
crazy noise that this sounds like in real life!
And this is a fast car, considering the age and era of where this comes
from. I think the driver has souped up this car a lot just for the noise
Holden is also a subsidiary of the General Motors organisation. The Holden
Torana was also designed, engineered and built in Australia. It was
famously driven by the legendary Peter Brock who won a number of Bathurst
1000 titles, which is an endurance race for touring cars that has been held
for decades and is usually a battle between Holden and Ford.
So anyway, for the fast car fans out there in petrol head land, enjoy this
very short but sweet video of a V8 Holden Torana revving it's guts out at
the starting line. I'll never forget listening to this loud V8 muscle car,
and neither will you! Web: http://www.TheTravelTart.com

7 Second Australian 1972 Valiant Charger
Not a car you see in the US that often, John Faraone's 4200lbs 572ci Twin
88mm turbo powered 1972 Valiant Charger
layed down some serious passes on Drag Week, especially the last day when
he overcame some tuning issues and broke into the 7's! We love seeing
people come from overseas to enjoy this insane event, especially when they
come from the opposite side of the world!

Huge crash in a 73 Mach 1 Mustang in Targa Tasmania 2012
This is the entire stage and huge crash we had on TS10 Elephant Saddle in
Targa Tasmania 2012. We had MANY requests for a slow motion replay of the
in-car footage so here it is. You have to wait for the end, but it's
probably worth it.
We have been asked many times what caused the accident, and it's a typical
concoction of many factors. But ultimately it was a poor change down to 3rd
that tipped the scales, and the road conditions didn't allow me to catch it
like I had many times before. I won't bother with listing the contributing
factors because it may sound like I (the driver) am looking for excuses!
The main thing is that both Dad (navigator) and I are OK, and no other
crews were involved. The car shell is badly damaged, but the running gear
is OK. We have a new shell on its way, and we will start the rebuilding
process and get Junior back on the road. It might take a year, it might
take two years. It might take 10 years, but Junior will be back on the
So enjoy the footage, excuse the damage to a beautiful car, and please
leave nice comments.
