  2. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    Yes i agree! we need more aussie cars on this site, and not just new ones. I'm a holden man and theres only 1 holden and a few hsv's. We need some fords too as well as the older stuff, like monaros, more toranas, escorts, gtho's etc... Pls, there are so many people who would like more aussie cars too<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    I agree I'd love to see the GTHO on this site. Aussie cars need more recognition. If you want, write an e mail to Super Cars. Hopefully they'll listen if they get a few people writing to them. I'm going to write them an e mail. There adress is support@supercars.net.
     
  4. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    Yep, I titally agree. I can supply them with 100's of pics of GTHO's and Valiant Chargers. People need to relaise we are not just about Kangaroos, playing cricket and drinking fosters, we made cars and had muscle car wars for decades like the yanks, and we made great cars at that.

    ALso think more newer cars. HSV's are well up, even though they havnt put the HSV coupes up yet. I think they need to put up T-series Fords, and all the previous GT's EB, EL ect.<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    Yeah it would be good, to see some of the classic Aussie cars, personally the Torana is my fave.
     
  6. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    Yep, I'm an aussie and we should have more aussie cars on the site, especially the Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III, and even more so the Chrysler Valiant Charger R/T E49 - the fastest and most powerful production six cylinder car in the world at the time - 302 hp and 14.3 sec 1/4.<!-- Signature -->

    You can have your car in any brand you want, as long as it's Aussie <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    I wanna see the Holden LX Torana SL/R 5000 and the Holden HQ Monaro GTS and the Holden HX Monaro GTS
     
  9. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    On the SC.net main forum, there are discussion boards for American, European, and Japanese cars, but there's no Aussie discussion board. Anyone agree, we should all email the guys running this site and rise up for the Australian supercars.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    There should DEFINATELY be more Aussie Fords on this site. I would love for the world to see the wonders of the GTHO's
     
  11. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    Problem with having a whole area dedicated to Australian cars is that 1) Theres not enough Australians currently on these boards and 2) They probably dont think we have enough cars to chat about.

    I personally think it would be a great idea though. Currently all out Aussie Ford vs Holden wars have been in the supercarforums like in the SV33 and falcon 300+ forums, rather than in the general forums.

    Does anyone know if the person in charge of these boards is currently an active member on the general forums?<!-- Signature -->

    I think we should do something to get some more aussie muscle on the site phase 1,2,3 and phase 4's and new and old manaro's and the HRT edition mallo ute, if that was on the site that really get some attention. Our cars are the best we got way better muscle cars than the americans we even have to supple them with pontiact GTO's. And lets not forget the TE50 best touring car australia has ever made as said by street machine.

  19. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    ooooooooooo what about the old Mazda RX3???

    now theres a car that deserves some respect

    ok i shut up now
     
  20. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    good, i and a few other r tryin to get more aussie cars on here
     
  21. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    Good idea to bring more Aussie flavour to this website that is so dominated by American, European and Japanese cars. For some strange reason a lot of people around the world seem to think that if a car wasn't made in America, Europe (including the UK) and Japan then it's hardly worth mentioning.

    Remember that at one time the XY GTHO Phase III Falcon was the fastest 4-door production car in the world and that the R/T E49 Charger was one of the fastest accelerating 6cyl cars ever.

    Just a few cars that could be put onto this site (alongside the HSV's, Monaro CV8 and the GTR XU1).....

    1967 Ford Falcon XR GT
    1969 Ford Falcon XW GTHO Phase I
    1970 Ford Falcon XW GTHO Phase II
    1971 Ford Falcon XY GTHO Phase III
    1972 Ford Falcon XA GTHO Phase IV
    1973 Ford Falcon XA GT Hardtop Superbird
    1978 Ford Falcon XC Cobra Hardtop
    1993 Ford Falcon EB GT
    1997 Ford Falcon EL GT (30th Anniversary)
    2003 Ford Falcon BA GT

    1968 Holden HK Monaro GTS 327
    1969 Holden HK Monaro GTS 350
    1972 Holden Torana GTR XU2
    1974 Holden Torana SLR5000
    1975 Holden Torana L34
    1977 Holden Torana A9X SS
    1981 Holden HDT Commodore VC
    1986 Holden HDT Commodore VK Group A SS
    1987 Holden HDT Commodore VL Group A SS
    1988 Holden Commodore VL Group A SS
    1990 Holden Commodore VN Group A SS

    I Guess my lack of Valiant knowledge now shows (even though I drive a 1978 CL Valiant) but numerous Pacers, Chargers and coupes (Chrysler by Chrysler) could also be included.

    Here's hoping.
     
  22. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    I'ld like to see the New Monaro 427 posted on sc.net as well
     
  23. Re: Support more Aussie street machines on Sc.net

    yeah the HRT 427 should be on here , its a true Supercar...I e-mailed the person incharge some time ago to put this beast on here and they just said they's try their hardest to put it on.
