It puts things in a weird kind of perspective when you leave the Lamborghini stand with its million dollar black Murcielago and you wander around to the Shannons Auction House display to see a 1970's Falcon GTHO with an expected selling range of $650-800k...drum brakes and black vinyl interior included. Holden muscle from the same era is also fetching a pretty penny with prices well over $100k for Bathurst Monaros. In their day these cars were ancient dinosaurs being well and truly out designed by the European product at the time - more brawn than brains. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
