HSV Clubsport VN-VX 1990-1998

Based on sheer perserverance alone, Holden Special Vehicles deserves all the success it has achieved because its early years were precarious indeed. Early products from the Holden off-shoot are scarce now because so few were made and they are still cheap. Only recently has the market started taking notice of models like the ClubSport; for years dismissed because they lacked the Bathurst links of Brock cars and early HSVs. The money being sought for early Clubbies is improving and at least there are still some survivors in the market. Later 5.0-litre versions are dearer but still offer a lot of car for $15,000. Some insurers still view them as thief - and idiot-bait, though, and charge ridiculous premiums.

HSV Clubsport/GTS VY-E 2002-2008

HSVs built during the past 15 years are more common than early ones yet are proportionately more expensive. The VYII certainly offers a lot of car for around $16,000, or you can pay a little more for the 6.0-litre Z with 297kW. The VE shape doesn't yet look ancient and that helps keep prices for excellent ClubSports above $30,000. We didn't survey the Tourer wagon but good cars are reportedly available at $32-36,000. HSV GTS sedans of this age haven't excited buyers to any degree and prices are dropping. A VE GTS that would have cost $15,000 more than a ClubSport in 2008 hasn't been able to maintain that price relativity.

VY-Z ClubSport $19,400 [29]

ClubSport E 2006-08 $30,765 [19]

GTS Y-Z $35,455 [12]

GTS E 2006-08 $38,120 [16]
