eek AV 5.4's go hard!!!

I was driving my car in Sunshine and saw a AV in my rear view mirror and thought that i should slow down and have a closer look.
He got next to me for about 30 seconds and he then noticed me having a perve at the car. He gave me a smile ( I hope he was'nt gay :dead: ) and took off like a bullitt.
I was'nt sure if it was a Forte' or a XR8 but it sounded and went like an animal.
I had a quick glance at the dashboard but it was pretty hard to see with the tinted windows .The dash looked fantastic. It had a similar design to the Focus and Mondeo.
The car looked yummy

Only if he blew you a kiss then you should be worried.

Me thinks he was smiling because he was about to leave you for dust. :s5

Holden's testing is largely based around the Lang Lang proving ground, and the 'real world' testing would mainly be based around the NT as well as Vic/NSW.

Hear hear!!

That's pretty much how I did it.
- Went to Uni, got a Mechanical Engineering Degree
- got any job that kept me in touch with cars
- kept hassling the car companies
- saw job advertised and went for it
- moved to Melbourne and now helping to develop the next Falcon, One hell of a job.
