I’ve just read your ‘Thirty Years of Grunt’ article in MOTOR and it’s great to reminisce on some truly great cars HSV churned out over the years. I still get a ‘fizz’ looking at the big bad Walky – what a machine!
I do have to stick up for the LE in the Five Forgettable HSVs section, though. I owned one of these many moons ago and while it doesn’t feature on my favourites list, it did have the 185kW V8 with manual transmission, all wrapped in the Berlina’s ’90s luxury. So it was a bit better than what you have made out!
