Boss' new car

Looks like the Boss at work is getting a new Berlina. So what you say, we don't want to know about the Dark Side. Yes but it's not an ordinary Berlina, he wants the GenIII version. he actually wanted a s/c 6 but for some reason you can't get a Berlina with this, only a Calais and he's not entitled to one of those so I guess he's "stuck" with the V8. Guess I'll spend a lot of time volunteering to go and put petrol in it for him, he he!:s6:

or better, run it and time the 0-100, if it cracks 5.1 seconds as aaaaa some people(VX SS) claimed, take it back to the boss. If it runs 8 seconds,as expected, off the cliff she goes.
remember to jump out of it before you throw her away:)

ayman, i can tell you right away - it will not do 5.1 sec 0-100. VX SS has a modified commodore so that doesn't have much relevance to a stock one.


i still say run it off a cliff regardless of what it does - it's a holden... 'nuff said! hehe

Hehehe now now guys, i know it's the car from the dark side and a fairmont is better but a GenIII powered commo would be ok for a company car.

Falcoon, i gotta say if i was you i'll be making excuses to drive that Berlina around, wouldn't go to bad me thinks.

I probably won't get to drive it much 'cause Mrs Boss drives it all the time. He was eligble for a new car about 4 months ago but she who must be obeyed couldn't decide on a colour. Still havent! She's down in Melbourne in his Fairmont at the moment while he has to use the pool Laser to get around!:oo1:
I don't know why he even needs a car, let alone a V8, he lives less than 1km from work!:crazy1:
