Uncle Phil's three top pics from the TradeUniqueCars classifieds this week include a 2002 Holden Monaro CV6, a Grabber Blue 5.0L Ford Mustang GT and a low mileage Datsun 280ZX


2002 Holden Monaro CV6


Sure, there’s plenty of V2 and VZ Monaros still getting about (although more and more are being stuck in garages for speculative purposes), but when was the last time you saw one that didn’t have a V8?

Rumour has it that for every V2 Monaro CV6 that was sold, ten CV8s were sold. So, as a result of our almost patriotic proclivity for the uneven rumble of a bent eight, not many blown 6-cylinder Monaros have existed, ever.

This one looks particularly sweet in factory ‘Hot House’ green and, for those looking at a smart buy for the future, I don’t reckon you’ll get much better than this.

2017 Ford Mustang GT


When the logical side of my brain kicks in, which I admit is rarely, I think that maybe, instead of dealing with the headaches of running something like an old Mustang, why not just get a brand new one?

I reckon they look ace, particularly this one in ‘Grabber’ blue, and the Coyote 5.0lt V8 under the bonnet is a truly excellent donk that’s bristling with character. What’s more, if you’re a speed demon there is now a number of tuning houses in Oz that will gladly turn your stock 306kW into much, much more and with a parts warranty to boot.

Datsun -280zx

1980 Datsun 280ZX

What do you reckon the average mileage of a car built 37 years ago is? 200,000? 300,000? Well, this 280ZX is bucking that trend, and then some. According to seller, this

Japanese wonder has travelled an absurdly low 25,000 kilometres from new! And judging from the pictures, it shows, the interior and exterior both look like they’ve just been

defrosted after being cryogenically frozen for the last three-and-a-bit decades. The 280ZX is a proper glimpse into the past, with enough red velour to make the set of a 70s

adult film blush. Actually, I’m surprised it’s not sporting a handlebar moustache.
