Good For Mustering Ford Parts — i swapped it for an NC fairlane v8 good choice. commodores are only good for burnouts and hoons .. not bad for a little drag racin those chook cookers theyre quick off the line it gave a vn 355 a good run for its money

Pros: burnouts

Cons: horrible i hate holdens

Overall Its Great — Love the roar of the engine as you put your foot down and give it a little juice. Also the Burgundy colour brings it into a class of it own plus dnt get me started on the handling. Its rock hard but handles like its on rails.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Its one of a kind

Cons: Fuel economy

Vl 1 — My first vl, perfomance wasnt too bad, nothing performance wise was done, ran like a standard 3.0l. Build was alright, was my first vl so i didnt screw with it very much, so nothing broke on it. appearance was a bit standard. ownership costs arent too bad, afterall, i owned it when i was 17 with no job. fun factor is really good for a rev head. driving australian built quality powered by nissan performance.

Pros: cheap to buy these days

Cons: hard to find a non thrashed one with low kms in good condition

Keith Vn Commodore V6 — Things i like about my car is it has a 7" dvd player, 1 1000w Kenwood amp, a 300w Sony Xplod Amp, a 15" sub. The things i dislike about the car is that it is auto, has some minor damage in the front end (done by my sista but oh well can't blame family) apart from that i have a ball in the car goin to skids on a saturday nite

Pros: Sub, Amps and DVD player

Cons: Auto, Minor Damage

1985 Vk Commdore Berlina Wagon, 3.3 Feul Injected. — I'm not sure what Holden thought it was doing putting a half attempt feul injection system on a motor that wasn't built for it, but thats what this car was. I always had problems with the injectors clogging no matter how clean everything was, and it drank feul like a carby anyhow. Other than that, it was a typical aussie car of the era, not the best built by not bad at all.

Pros: Cheap to buy, power for the money.

Cons: Old, not good on feul, not super comfortable (huge wind/tyre noise too).

One Of The Best Cars I've Ever Had — Have the original Gold with the 308, motor has now been fully rebuilt as well as the transmission, all it needs now is a new carby and a bloody good service

Pros: solid as, goes great when it's running right

Cons: automatic
