Aussie Pete is Cranking

You can hear the starter motor cranking and we are so close to Having Ignition it's not funny. The baby arrives tomorrow - Friday afternoon 10 August. Will update when it happens (I have to make a fuss because XR8220 has beaten me by miles!)

Well I would have got Red if they had it for the VT Series 2 SS but they didn't.

I guess they were fast enough already :p

The torch relay escort Commodores were 'RED HOT' VT2 SS 9C1 sedans. From memory there were 6 built. As far as I know none where sold to the public, Holden apparently sold them in house.:(
