Giogattolo - Not a "Walky' but had a rear mounted Walkinshaw built V8

Anybody seen one of these lately?? Not that I could afford one (very much doubt it anyway) but the last one I saw for sale was about 5 years ago for 60 odd grand I think. Would be interesting to see what price they would go for now as there's only a handful in existance.

Some might remember the yellow twin turbo '"JUDGE" that that was destroyed in a crash at eastern creek, killing the owner about 5 years ago.

Here's a video of it on the dyno with some wicked backfire.

Weighed 1080kg. 0-100 in 5.4 sec. Not bad for something built in 1986. Check out the rear end on it...

That's build No1 as seen on the Shannons commercial. That thing would be worth a pretty penny that's for sure

I know I have an in-depth article about the creation and history of these somewhere in the mountain of magazines here. It was written sometime in the last few years, perhaps for an issue of "Australian Muscle Car"?
