Well the old VY SS had done nearly a decade of service so it's time had come. While tempted to hang out for the auto GTS I decided this would be enough for the default daily driver.
Electronics sure have improved in the last decade. Much better looking than the VE on the outside and the interior is light years ahead.
Best of all insurance was nearly a hundred dollars cheaper than a SSV redline. Go figure.

Jeeezus.... not a bad default daily driver.....    If I had the money (and I don't) i would get a manual GTS 430kw and put it away... they are surely gunna be worth $$$ in the future.....  IMHO..    "Last of the Interceptor's"  

 anyways nice freken car.......  Rexy

To be sadly honest when i first clicked on this earlyer on my phone i thought you had brought a Mazda 6.

 

Now that im on the computer i realize its a commy.

 

As above, bet its a nice car to drive and hope it gives you plenty of service life.

 

Cheers.
