Fast Cars - Loud V8 Holden Torana Automobile Vehicle - Targa Tasmania 2011

More at http://www.thetraveltart.com and http://bit.ly/g5NbIl Fast Cars - Loud V8 Holden Torana Automobile Vehicle - Targa Tasmania 2011. High noise drive by of a tarmac rally car in Australia via a time trial undertaken on public roads. The Holden Torana is a circa 1970's muscle car at high speed. Very,very noisy automobile. Was great listening to the car as it went past! I didn't have anywhere to hide if this thing came off the road! Back in the 1970s, the Holden Torana was a very popular road car in Australia and was at the top of car sales for many years. It was small in size, but had a 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. 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. What happens is that the rally occurs over a number of stages via a time trial. Marshalls go ahead and clear the course at specified times to ensure that other cars don't enter the course and cause an accident. They do a number of clear throughs before all of the cars line up and then race down the section at certain intervals. Members of the general public usually stay on the side of the road to check out all of the fast car action. While this car wasn't the fastest in the field, it was definitely one of the loudest out there and sounded like one of the best. Judging by some of the comments on this YouTube video, many rev-heads love this video simply because of the V8 engine noise! 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 factor! 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 tearing down the road. The driver is really giving it heaps here!

V8 Cars - Holden Torana Standing Start - Targa Tasmania 2011 Australia
More at http://amzn.to/hTjVoh and http://www.thetraveltart.com/ V8 Car 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.

1979 Heat 2 AMSCAR Amaroo, The Torana A9X Years
Take a trip down memory lane to the early years, Amaroo 1979 AMSCAR round 2, heat 2, featuring the Holden Torana A9X with the unusual combination of Bob Morris, Allan Moffat and Allan Grice all driving the A9X, a rare moment in Touring Car History. Also featuring bonus interviews with the drivers and legendary sponsor of touring car racing Ron Hodgson himself. All rights Channel 7 Sport, great contributors to Australian motorsport history. Kudos. Special thanks to Duncan for making it happen. Amaroo Park was a 1.9 kilometres (1.2 mi) motor racing circuit located in Annangrove, New South Wales, in the present-day western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. It was opened in 1967, hosting its first motorcycle meeting on 26 February with a 30 lap production race won by Larry Simons on a BSA Spitfire in heavy rain. The first dry meeting saw the lap record set by Jack Ahearn at 63.9 seconds. The road circuit served as a venue for a variety of competitions including the Castrol 6 Hour motorcycle race, rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship, Formula Ford, Formula 5000, historic racing and others. The last Australian Touring Car Championship round to take place at the circuit was in 1994. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amaroo_Park

1971 - Peter Brock Rallycross - Colin Bond Torana XU1 (SUPER100mph)
https://www.youtube.com/super100mph This video was produced for the Holden Dealers about 1971 ish as a promo film under the title "What's A Nice Car Like You Doing In A Race Like This?" featuring Peter Brock and Colin Bond. Some amazing rare colour footage of Peter Brock "Rallycrossing" in "The Beast" (specially modified Torana) and Colin Bond in his famous Torana XU1 days South Pacific Touring Car Series, competing at Warwick Farm, Sandown and Surfers Paradise. Special thanks to Colin Bond for his introduction to the our video and alerting us to this wonderful footage. Enjoy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Bond Bond initially made a reputation as a hillclimber with three NSW Hillclimb titles in 1965-67 driving a Lynx-Peugeot S/C. Also known as a rally driver he was relatively unknown in circuit racing circles apart from a few forays racing various Isuzu Belletts, when he was chosen to partner Tony Roberts in one of three Holden Dealer Team entered Holden Monaros for the 1969 Hardie-Ferodo 500 at Bathurst. On a day when the Fords crumbled with unsuitable tyres for the race, the HDT stood strong, putting all three Monaros into the top six positions with Bond and Roberts winning. Torana GTR XU-1 Bond and Shepheard in the Holden Dealer Team Torana GTR XU-1 on their way to another win in the Warana Rally, round four of the 1972 Australian Rally Championship. The nimble 6-cylinder Torana GTR XU-1 debuted in late 1970 and in 1971 Bond began racking up an impressive list of race and rally titles in his Torana. He secured the Manufacturer's Championship for Holden by winning 3 out of 5 rounds, including the Sandown 250 enduro in his XU-1. He also won the Australian Rally Championship and the Southern Cross Rally, along with the South Pacific Touring Series that year. Late in 1971 Bond had a couple of drives with Frank Matich's F5000 team. One was in the Australian Grand Prix at Warwick Farm and driving in a wet practice session Bond put in lap times seconds faster than his more experienced F5000 rivals. After his open-wheeler stint he opted to stay with the Holden Dealer Team. The following year Bond won the Australian Rally Championship for the second year in a row. Bond also won the Catalina Park rallycross series, while on the bitumen he won the Toby Lee Series and Sun-7 Gold Medal. In 1973 he again won the Sun-7 series at Amaroo Park. 1974 ARC winners Colin Bond and George Shepheard in the HDT Torana GTR XU-1 at the Warana Rally, round five of the 1974 Australian Rally Championship. In 1974, as well as winning his third national Rally Championship, Bond won his third consecutive Sun-7 Chesterfield Series against a strong challenge by Bob Morris. Torana L34 In late 1974, driving the new Holden Torana SL/R 5000 L34, he contributed to Holden's victory in the Australian Manufacturers' Championship, again winning three out of five rounds. Peter Brock left the Holden Dealer Team at the end of 1974. So for the 1975 season Colin Bond was the team's No.1 driver. That year he won the Australian Touring Car Championship and also won the South Pacific Touring Car Series. At Bathurst Bond won pole position and led for much of the early part of the race but a broken axle at half distance put him too far back to challenge Peter Brock. Reproduction of the 1976 Bathurst Bond/Harvey Torana Bond was involved in a dramatic finish in 1976 at the Bathurst 1000. Late in the race when it seemed Bond, in the Holden Dealer Team Torana L34, had the race sewn up he was forced to pull into the pits with fanbelt trouble allowing the Bob Morris Torana to take the lead. In the final laps Morris's co-driver, British touring car ace John Fitzpatrick, nursed home an ailing car trailing smoke ahead of Bond's Torana which finished about 40 seconds behind. In 1987, motoring writer Bill Tuckey in his book The Rise and Fall of Peter Brock claimed that there had been a lap scoring error in the 1976 race and that Colin Bond's Torana was the first car to complete the distance. Tuckey claimed Holden declined to challenge the result because a privately entered Holden team had won in such a memorable, emotional finish, and because Bob Morris' major sponsor was Ron Hodgson Motors, one of Sydney's leading Holden dealerships at the time. It remains however a contested footnote, Bob Morris denies that this was the case, claiming most team lap scorers agreed that the results were correct. Despite this, Bond's co-driver John Harvey believes that he and Bond did indeed win the race, despite the official result still showing Morris and Fitzpatrick as race winners. 1984 Bathurst 1000 - Chasing Brock (ICMR)

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to 75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for watching! -L
