Monaro Motors in Melbourne were a big MG tuner in the 50s.

he isn't speaking to me now, as I have pointed out that the holden monaro didn't come out until 1968, so a Austin 1100 monaro tuned with holden parts is technically a mk1 holden monaro

'Monaro' is of Australian Aboriginal origin, meaning a high plateau or high plain. The coupe shares its name with the Monaro range, which is part of NSW's Snowy Mountains as well as the Monaro Shire, just south of Canberra, ACT.

Aaahhh the older simpler days.....

Today the guys from Monaro Motors would probably have extracted $$$$$$ from Holden for impinging their trade mark ....

But who could spell trade mark in those days....

Cheers, Ian
