THE hunt for Australia’s greatest home-brewed muscle car continues, this time for the 1980s.
With the 1970s in our rear-view mirror, (and a controversial result), it’s time for the era of synths and short shorts.
Aussie muscle cars in the ’80s shrunk considerably, largely due to the global fuel crisis. It’s for this reason that only a single V8 Falcon was produced in that decade.
What we lost in cubic size, was made up with homologation specials.
The Australian Touring Car Championship of that era was run under regulations which meant race cars had to have mechanically similar road-going siblings.
This resulted in homologation specials rolling off factory floors, which were the Kings of the road back in the day.
So get your vote in below on which Aussie-built Muscle Car from that era is top of the pops.
