HOLDEN HQ MONARO GTS
MICHAEL Schena turned a basket-case Monaro into a cruisin’, show-worthy burnout and drag machine.
“A panel beater told me straight-up that it would need 3000 hours spent on it,” he says. But being a boilermaker and diesel mechanic by trade, Michael was up for the challenge, and while he was working on the body, Johnny Pilla at Powerhouse Engines put together a stout 540ci Dart Big M motor topped with a four-barrel Pro Systems Dominator.
The package makes 785hp and has already seen plenty of action on the burnout pad, and returned a swift 10.3 at Heathcote.
