I saw that one a couple of weeks ago with a bit of damage to it's nose. It is one of many private imports floating around the country that have had commodore nose panels added to it.
The biggest engine available in the Opel Monza was a 3L injected 6 cylinder. PB fitted a V8 to the example he brought into the country and quite a few people have copied this over the years.

He even turned a vk into a replica Brock race car. Decals and all. Helps being a sign writer! He did all the signage outside etc. He also built all the 1:24th scale models in the display cabinets. No small feat considering nobody makes kits for those cars and he scratch built them all.
There are plenty of locals that didn't go for a look while it was open due to the asking price for a tour. The day I went it was $44 which for a Holden/Brock fan like myself is ok but I think maybe for somebody that's not a massive fan but would like to have a look might be asking a bit much. That was the reason most people I have spoken to didn't go for a look. It was a great display and very well done. Hopefully they all get to be on show again somewhere in the near future.
I have pics of everything too if there is something that somebody wants to see more of.

Hi guys, that was an absolute blast and covered very well.
I heard it was closing and made time to get up and see it, i was in the arvo group 2nd last tour.
Will never forget the emotion from PC and the Brock family. (We talked to them on the plane up!)
I will be a shame to break up any part of this display, if it is moved it should be in it's entirety.
The Qld tourism voted it the best attraction for many years but did little to promote it.
i've only just found this thread, i guess that's the positive to such a large site, you never get bored reading things!
