I personally love vn and vp Holden's and think they look better than the vl before them. Cheers Aaron.

 

I agree Aaron, VL are ugly.

Happened to all the metallic options, the Acrylic base coat and low baked enamel clearcoat were never actually tested in Australia, they were American products. 

 

Failure was imminent. 

 

Wasnt just Holden, pretty well everything from the era with the metallic option is the same.

VL are only popular because of the turbo. No turbo no VL, Cheers Aaron.

Na, the VL is the UC of first shape Commodore and Calais. They can look good if the headlights are disguised (aka Calais) and the boot lip is covered (as in HDT/HSV stuff) but as a standard car they are on par with a base VN or worse.

How did this build thread turn into a debate about what car is ugly or not to your taste. Lets respect the build thread and only comment if relevant. Good luck with the build. Look forward to progress pics. 👍

Its usually typical of build threads that are up for years with no progress. The banter keeps it interesting :)

But more done today. Inspected the tunnel, yep unmolested.

Also quick check under the bonnet, yep, correct number of cylinders.

E83BE9EE-71AA-421F-9214-A366F069020B_zps

And finally, moved some parts around and stacked them on the car... Big morning, time for a beer :)

Huh ?

Your posts so far ...

The VN is the ugliest car made by GMH.

But you don't mind them.

You like VL's.

But would never build a bommodore.

You aren't building a car.

But you have a build thread and you are building a car ?

This is why drugs are bad..... Your frOcktardary knows no bounds ;)
