confused Was that a GTS Monaro cop car?

Was it just my eyes, or was that a bright yellow HSV Coupé GTS/GTO cop car leading the AFL Grand Final Parade in Melbourne last Friday, and, if so, has anyone got any photos of it?

Apparently there is a marked yellow GTO Coupe running around.

It wears the plates "HSVGTO" so I'd say it is a promotional vehicle supplied by HSV to VicPol.

I saw that GTO, my uncle was in his GTHO and they seemed a bit 'cocky' to say the least when they pulled up at the lights.
Despite their presence good old uncle Mick let it rip right in front of them. (this was not at the grand final parade, day before).
Was quite a sight they were pissed but could't do anything.
hehehe

I saw it down Lygon St aswell and the cops think they're heros cruising up and down Lygon........bloody idiots!!!

I heard that HSV are leasing it to the cops for marketing purposes or something.

Sounds like you're jealous there Mr 00 Lowndes! Though if they gave me a HSV to drive it would stay in the garage and I'd walk!
