The Venturian brings to mind an early '60s Impala - the fins have definitely shrunk compared with just a few years earlier. But the best thing about it is this:
With that much power, it would have been easy to consider it a forerunner to the muscle car movement that took hold in the mid-sixties.
The nose of the '06 Venturian reminds me of a VE Commodore SS. I really wish they made a ute version of the Venturian, though - it just looks right alongside the rest of the range.
