Urgh, the Starfire. Pretty vile engineering abortion that one - basically a 'red' Holden six with two cylinders lopped off, which is pretty much how it went. Yuck. That particular Toyota-Holden tie-up predated the others (Nova, Apollo, Lexcen) by a few years; surprising that Toyota wanted anything to do with GM-H again after that, but needs must I suppose...
Toyota got royally stung in Oz in the late 70s/early 80s by having to use a Holden 1.9 engine in the Corona to meet local content regs, and they ended up buying their way out of the contract early. Apparently the engine re-introduced Toyota buyers (and dealers) to oil leaks...
