Fully independent rear suspension. 5.7 liter V8. 3.46 limited slip. Great agility, crisp handling. Rear wheel drive.
All of that makes for a 346 horsepower Pontiac GTO. Unfortunately, by the time Bob Lutz convinced the bean counters at GM to bring the Holden-engineered Monaro to the States, it cost north of $30,000, making it less affordable than today’s Camaro.
But here’s our question: how did the Pontiac G3 (aka the Daewoo Kalos and Chevy Aveo) and G5 (aka the Chevy Cobalt) qualify to wear the same badge as the brand taglining itself as Fuel for the Soul?
