          well u should check out these baby's...

          www.hsv.com.au

          they speak for themselves.

          As for my car, ill take some better pics soon, with a digital cam not a digi video camera, over the xmas period ill be changing my setup to the back of the wagon, making a floating floor, that hides everything. It will be a lot more practicale: harder to find, steal etc.

          ill keep your guys posted with lots a pics, stay tuned for MK2.

            You may see LHD Utes at some point not too far in the future.

            They're trying to bring them to the Middle East.

            We had the LHD Monaro (called Lumina Coupe) for a good few months before the GTO hit US showrooms...

            I do love these cars... SS Ute is a stunner... I'd love to have one set up like the Utester...

              Nice setup. Is that 5" or 7" screen? The LCD looks factory w/ the exception of the slant, but you said that was fixed right?
              New CarPC on the way again I think. I miss my old one!!!

                          Haha I don't see why you couldn't fit a 5.7L V8 to the same car with a Vauxhall badge...

                          The biggest problem you're going to have is paying for it all... not only the cost of the engine block, but your fuel consumption, insurance rates and frequent replacement of rear tires
