To be fair, the Monaro is a little like a fat Calibra!laugh
My Auntie reckoned my Ro is much like her old Hyundai coupe (she loved that car so a compliment?).
The Volvo comment? Yeah, lost for words!

Had a little chuckle at petrol station today, chap watched me pull up as he was filling his new Mondeo, I noticed his head shake, anyhow just as I was popping a drop of fuel in, he chirped up, "bet you get sick of feeding that thing"..... I replied, "nah it's cheaper to run than your Mondeo mate", he got nasty and shouted "bullst, how can it knob head?", politely I replied, "do the maths, I bet your Mondeo cost you twice as much as this did me, currently yours is losing a good £300+ a month depreciation, plus you've probably got finance, mines not depreciating, I ain't got finance so just fuel and that's not £300 a month Einstein"
. He didn't reply.......laugh

That's pretty funny.
I get asked how many miles to the gallons does it do? I just usually reply no idea I just keep putting fuel in it, if I wanted something economical I would buy a push bike.
5.7 litre and supercharged, yeah sure I was thinking about fuel economy when I bought it, yeah right.

Don't get me started on folk like this. All these idiots that reckon they're saving the planet by purchasing/leasing a new 'economical' car. Even funnier is those that claim its going to save them money!:Depreciation anyone?laugh
Anyone with half a brain can surely figure that the whole manufacturing process required in designing and building a new car is far more damaging than running and maintaining a perfectly serviceable car that already exists. Regardless of engine size, especially EVs and their special batteries.
If they want a new car, fine get one, but stop pretending its got owt to do with saving the planet!

I think you did OK with that one. I love Astons from the early 70's through to the late 80's. Oddly I really don't like them after that period.
I remember reading an article (back in the day) that said, Camaros were styled with a European GT flavour smile so you never know.
