Continue to watch and enjoy the new Holden VF Calais V V8 Sportwagon and Holden VF Ute SS-V Redline. Wish we got those versions.

The more I look at it, I think that Joe Average is going to think our cars are some version of the SS.

Also, I'd like to find out where this "aluminium" the guy keeps talking about is.

What am I missing here? I though 'our' Chevy SS was getting the 6.2 415 HP engine?

Whenever I silence a noise my car is making, another one, that was masked by the first becomes apparent. The only universal repair is to dramatically increase the volume of the radio, purchasing a good aftermarket subwoofer and amp if your car also suffers from as yet undiagnosed clunks or vibrations.

Ok. I would say I feel bad for the Aussies, but they get to have lot's of cool Holden's we don't!

Ya know, those guys ^^^ maybe great authorities on automotive issues, but they don't know the VF Commodore worth a damn! The guy on the far left in particular is clueless! And the host, "it has everything on my checklist" but the price is astounding? Maybe he should go out and actually look at prices on cars similarly equipped, then he'd be astounded it is so cheap!
