North east Melbourne suburbs?

I've heard of a few of them around, might pay to head over to the darkside forums and find out what they know.

Re: LHD Holdens

i was drivin on the freewya, and looked in my mirror, and saw the new comomodore... vx or y or whatever with a guy in the passenger seat, but couldnt see a driver?? as he passed me, he was next to me, with no driver....... when i saw the back of the car... platered in yellow "left hand drive vehicle"...... i thought i was seeing things

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

XE Fairmont Ghia... Silver/Grey Met over black, soon to be v8, cant wait till i get another v8, after 3 LONG HARD YEARS

About a month ago I spotted a LHD GTO coupe at the Glen in Glen Waverley, no badges but that front bumper/grill is a dead giveaway.It had the LHD research test vehicle markings on the rear bumper,

Re: LHD Holdens

just a bit off topic but::
i saw a left hand drive EB Fairmont ghia in a import/export yard in sydney when i was there a few years back it had new york plates and looked pretty sorry for itself..... i'd say it was sent back here for a ground up resto.....

correct amoondo
they give them a good workout during testing, some of them are not fitted with a passenger R/H/F seat as they have a computer & data logger fitted there
