1986 Holden Calais Review
When its running its the most fun to drive. It skates everywhere.
Cop-Magnet, cops see my head whilst I'm driving and think I have stolen it.
If You Have Money To Modify And Make It Sound Like Thunder Is Arriving Then Awesome. — The VL Turbo has no engine in it at the moment so it goes nowhere. The transmission is busted from all the burnouts and hard changes so that doesn't help performance. It drinks too much and smells of fuel while driving it cos of the extra injector. If you're hopin to get looks while driving this car you will - but only from P plater male drivers that drive standard commodore's who think they have a 10 second car. Oh and the police seem to like it too!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

overall this car is great. ( VL CALAIS ) I dislike the intercooler. it can over heat, meaning you would need to buy a new intercooler if you wanted it to run at the best of it's ability. pe... Read More
