Nice! Long way south though. Is that a V6 under there? Can't really tell from the pics, but I didn't think a V6 would fit behind the flat-front grille?

Think its a V6 -but it looks long time unused.I missed out on a Fiat 1500 inOz this morning by about £20 -so I've 'spare funds to acquire...Getting it home's the issue -but I'll deal with that if I get it.

Cavalier? Hahahhahahahahahahaha! No.

'Tis a Holden VH Commodore SS. Think early Carlton/Senator with a wazzo 5-litre V8 and four-speed Dennis Fire Engine manual box. Sophisticated it ain't - but I bloody loves it. I actually saw one of these in Perth last year, sounded ORSUMS, like Brian Blessed in V8 form. DO WANT.

If we're talking down under, when Mrs GVM and I went out to New Zealand I was allowed a paltry NZ$1000 to purchase wheels. I saw a lovely orange Datsun 120Y estate for exactly that amount, but I wasn't allowed it because it was "too old". Ho hum. Anyway, after about three days I decided what I really wanted was one of these, for no better reason than I thought it looked cool.

(we ended up with an '86 Sunny estate, which was pretty cool in its own right)

If you are thinking of the estate (station wagon) = it's a HQ Holden 71-74 iirc - though the rest of the hj hx hz range are similar different grills etc. Hz had better suspension (RTS) but later are not as prettytrim is belmont, kingswood ,premier - they are also 2 door Monaros, gts but big big money now! we had the belmont with red vinyl and rubber mats - my uncle had the premier in emerald metallic green and a kingswood in purple.engines are Holden Red 173 ci and most popular 202 ci 3.3L 6 which i think is also in a bigger vauxhall - and the v8s 253 and 308 ci and chev 350 for monarosgreat cars that go forever - column shifts a bit rattley and automatics (trimatics=traumatics) have a so so rep. and the rear suspension has always crapped itself.just a personal view but always tight under the steering wheel in bench seat models but thats just me (im only 6ft)spares are very cheap as transferrable over a big range and this is the best selling holden ever but do have their own one make race series which can lift prices. of course if you like the shape and enjoy japanese they are the Mazda Roadpacer with a 12a (?) rotaryi hope this has hepled - if it was the car you were asking for!if its the VH SS im feeling a bit silly.......

"Kingers" are ace, everyone in Oz loves 'em it seems. I reckon the HQ is the best looker. Worth a punt Nige!PS VH SS's are silly money, like £12k + at the moment.

100% with you on the Manta A and C130, but you already know of my love for them DC. Lucky enough to say that I've had examples of both in the past (better to have loved and lost, etc). Still need to compile my list, otherwise my stocking will be empty.

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.
