Look At This!

Okay, get this, I was down at the waterfront with a friend this afternoon, and we decided to go for a walk.
We went past the docks where all the car containers come and and we saw a weird sight :eek: .
We saw two cars be loaded onto a truck, one was small, the other was large. - Both had heavy camoflague at the rear but not so much at the front. _ I was ver suspicious at this point :eek: .
The first car got it's own truck, which is very weird as it can take upto 6 cars, that truck speed away out the back exit. But the second, the larger one of the two, was heading towards us, when it came closer, I saw that it was a Holden, but not a normal one:eek: :eek: .
Could this be a future Commie testing in NZ? - because of it's track record in Aus??!!:eek: :eek:

There are a few things that sugest that this is not a normal car.
The fact that the cars were being off loaded in a " secure area " , the fact that the had HEAPS of camoflague at the rear, one car per truck that can hold upto 6 cars each, the speed of which the driver of truck two went when he saw us, the trucks used were not the normal ones, and the similarities between these two cars and the spy pics in motor mag a few months ago. - My mate had taken a lot more pictures than me (we both had cameras (me digital, him a proper one)) His pics will be developed soon, and hopefully with the rear! - The reason why I could'nt get more pics was the fact that in a Mavica, it takes about 5 seconds to record to disc each time, but my mate will have heaps, for sure.
Here are some pics of motor mag, look at the similarities...:eek: :eek:

Pritesh - The top two cars are the new VX2 Calais's, though I'm not quite shore why they had lots of masking on them.

Did you get any pics of the smaller car?

I am sure that it's not a Calais, althoguh it does look like it, it's not - I'm adimant. - And if so, why have all the masks, the secracy, the trucks...
And it had a Huge (bigger that normal) spoiler, it was obvious underneath the covers. - We'll get some great shots of it when the other pics are developed. The other small car wasthe one we did'nt get to see too much of, my mate and I were talking after that and we concluded it may have been the Monaro, geting ready for it's unveiling, but we 'ant sure.

Pritesh did you get a shot of the whole car?

More importantly did it have lower/shorter roofline than the normal sedan?

I can tell you if it is a sedan that it will be the new Calais, visable changes for the VX2 include a cross hatched grill and SS like black headlight inserts.

The fog lights are the same as on the VX1 and the wheels on the car featured in Motor are not VY items.
