1969 HT Monaro with a factory 186 that I converted to a 350 Chev, 9" tank Fairlane diff and HQ brakes. I rebuilt it in my driveway on a student budget (lots of graveyard shifts) and it took every spare cent I had at the time. I bought the shell freshly painted and it wasn't done very well so the rust came back pretty quickly. Over time the front guard was damaged in a minor collision, the TH350 trans was on it's last legs and a bloke offered me $3000 "as is" (barely running) so I took the money. Ten years ago that was decent coin for a molested wreck. There's something about the shape of the early Monaros, nothing comes close for me - except maybe the 427 Cobra.
