Chevrolet Lumina SS?

On the eastern freeway this morning I caught sight on something that took some interest and had me baffled.

Holden VY SS Commodore in silver, looked normal to me. However, it had "LEFT HAND DRIVE - Engineering Evaluation Vehicle" sign on it. Yes, obviously was a left hand drive. So I thought I'd have a closer look..

Also noticed it had the Chev badges on it where the Holden badges usually are, where it usually says "Commodore" it said "Lumina" and it had the stock standard SS badges.

Is the Commodore going to take place of the Chev Lumina? Or are these the vehicles that go to the middle east?

I'm a little confused...

And no I didnt get pics.

Re: Chevrolet Lumina SS?

Last Friday I also saw a black Pontiac Firebird with left hand drive evaluation vehichle signs on it. It looked like a recent model, but they have been stopped haven't they?

When I lived in canada, my mums car was a 1996 lumina and it looked a hell of a lot like the VT.

Re: Chevrolet Lumina SS?

i saw a black left hand drive commodore, it was behined me, and i couldnt see no bloody driver, and as he passed me. i looked 2wice, and thought what da ****? i thought i was dreaming... if it didht have a sticker on the back, i would have pulled up on the side of the freeway, and gone to bloody sleep

We live in an imperfect world, but
there is no point in trying to make it perfect, because not everyone can be GREEK!
