Welcome aboard. That's a nice ride you've got there. I'm a bit jealous since it's a wagon, always wished they'd import those to the US. Looks good with the black wheels also. No worries with the L98, that's still a potent engine with just a couple of upgrades.

2009.5 SBM GT: Lots of show with some go.
The garage queen.

2008 IOM GT: Some go, working on the show.
The daily driver.

2004 Blazer Xtreme: Lots of go.
Sold and will be missed.

Nice and welcome!

Just returned from down under. Passed through Darwin, Cairns and Sydney. The bright colored Holden's really stand out. Saw a few of the pickup models too. What city are Holdens made in?

Welcome, mate! I was in AU Oct 08 to July 09. I loved it over there and when I came back, I had to get a G8 after seeing the Commodore SS.

Yes..There are Wagons over here I imported one of the 1st to the USA it was a Black 2012 Calais ... it was sold to a lawer in California just prior to the conversion to left hand drive being completed by Lefthandutes in Denver Co. the same buyer has since purchased a HSV Clubby wagon and Randy is in the process of doing a VY Wagon using a GTO as the doner all are black... Currently there are 3 wagons For Sale in the USA ... one is a VF Perfect blue the other is Silver and not sure about the third.

Where are there 3 wagons for sale? I just bought a G8 carcass that I might use to convert a RH drive wagon someday.

TO my knowledge they have already been converted Greg Hunter in Arizona has them .... Randy in Denver imports them but will only sell them converted due to them being .... imported on his Import licence.
