V2 Monaro
G’day all

Does an automatic Monaro really devalue the vehicle?

I’m looking at $22k for a red V2 Auto Monaro.

$132km on the clock.

Car is mint and in ridiculously good condition.

I’m 27 y/o and I’d expect to still have this in 20 years time.

I’ll need to buy some factory rims, as I hate the aftermarket which will cost approx. $1500.

Just seeing everyones thoughts before I commit.

My only real concern is that its auto.

I would not say an auto devalues it, maybe a manual adds to the value ……. if you want a manual.
Mine is auto because that is what I wanted at the time, considering its use at the time, and that my wife used it also. Now, I wish it was a manual because it is not a daily drive, but I don’t regret my original choice.
My personal opinion as to Monaro devaluing, is the awful interior colours that were so fashionable back when, and now just look :eek: yuk.

Won't devalue it. Maybe manuals are slightly more desirable but it's also about what you want to do with it.
I went auto because at the time it was to be a daily drive and the car i was trading in was a manual and i was getting sick of it in stop start traffic.
