any build plates on it?
The Gen 3 isnt original equipment, not for a series 1 VT Clubsport anyway.
Colour looks good, original and different.

Thanks!

Thanks for the tips & complements guys!:thumbsup:

That was the main reason I brought it, cause of the colour. Nice drive too, had no problems with her since i brought it (just the brake pads).

Yeah I was thinking about doing the OTR & MAFFLESS TUNE next so cheers for that!

Your right the previous owner done alot of things to the car. It was built Nov/1997 with the standard 5ltr. He did the conversion of the 5ltr to the ls1 5.7ltr. He basically turned it into a vx. Brought it at 60 000ks now its at 80 000ks.

Well cheers & thanx again guys!!!:wave:

Yeah I know. Especially for a 97 vt.
Someone was saying that it could of started again when he converted the engine to the 5.7ltr. But i wouldnt know dont know much about cars.
Thats what got me when I brought it, was the Kms. Asked him why it was so low he said he didnt drive it for about 5 years.

Love the car mate. When my sister was buying her VZ SV6, she bought it from same place as your car :) I've seen it and was in love straight away. Guy said the engine was from a monaro from I can remember? Excellent car though. He tried talking me into getting it haha :)

lol. haha
Yeah this was the owners old car. He brought a new Monaro I think he spent 70k on it thats why he had to get rid of this car.
Come to think of it, I was there to look at a red vy SS. But this car was parked next to it. So I walked out with this one. lol
