mad Bonnet Bulge for VY Commodore!

Just got an eyefull of the latest Street Machine Magazine, and inside there is a company in Adelaide that now makes bonnets to suit the VY Commodore, complete with a very proud bulge looking much like our very own XR8 and GT.

Way to spoil a good, purposeful concept.

I cant scan pics yet, but it is worth a look.

There's no substitute for cubic inches!

Now all they need is to make jeans with a buldge pouch at the front to suit the Commodore drivers...lol

I drive an Turbocharged AU XR6 HP, and find that with the pipings in place, a bonnet with a subtle buldge would be really helpful, but nothing as big as that on the BA XR8 coz I don't want to be a "wannabe"....not that I don't like the BA buldge, but it just wouldn't be right to have on an AU.... :(

Yeah saw a VY SS Ute here in NZ with a POINTLESS bulge in it's hood, the Falcon V8's have 'em because the engine just wont fit without it, the commie has it just because it looks good.

Me thinks them people should be ashamed of them selves!

Well, at least we can point and laugh at those freakin moron commodore driver, because their cars are RICERS. Ha.

But for some reason I want to throttle someone right now.

Mate, if it's a factory std fitting you can't call it RICE...

Now let's see what Commodore VY Race cars have on them

ummm, FORD heads
FORD Rear End
FORD Front end

Hang on a minute, just how much of this thing is Holden????

I am sure it has been covered time and time again here, but my idea of "rice" is add-ons that serve no function, power or aerodynamic advantage.

A turbo Falcon isnt rice, far from it!
A turbo falcon with neon lights underneath and autometrer gauges on the bonnet is rice,
And a V-WHY Commodore with bulge is also rice.

Also, Keam Kiwi, as for "adding a turbo to keep up with the Commodores", which spec Falcon are you comparing to which spec Commodore??? Please dont let fact blur your point of view in your post.

Surely you dont compare the blown Falcon 6 Vs the blown Commodore 6.... Or the NA Falcon 6 which has more power than the blown Commodore 6.

Dude, you have nothing in this argument.

Oh, and when your six pack can keep up with the XR8, you give us a yell. Untill then you are
