This is my Calais and the second Holden I have owned. I love this car and after spending a lot of time just reading and becoming inspired by what people have done to their own cars on this forum, it has made me into a car enthusiast. So any comments, feedback or ideas that you guys have to help make my ride the best that it can be is greatly appreciated. I wont be able to do much to it at the moment as I can currently making the move from Brisbane down to Sydney with a new job. But once i am settled, ill have way more free cash to spend on her.

Haha, oops a bit of a typo there. Fixed that up, well i did post it at 2am because i couldnt sleep lol. I dont have a pic of the engine bay right now, but ill grab one this afternoon :) Yea, I cant wait to lower her. Probably just put SL on the front and SSL on the back. Calpsi's VX inspired me to take the spoiler off and drop her down. With the video he posted of a drive by, it looked a lot better with the cleaner look.

Defo take the spoiler off. And maybe consider getting a senator signature style lip (the boots look abit bare with nothing on them, but that spoiler is gross :p)
Also have a look at how they look with a VT SS lip kit on them, some have them fitted from the dealer and look pretty good.


Surprising that even though there were only 250 (or 350, cant remember) of these yet theres 1000s of sets of the wheels floating around. Not a fan of the wheels, but being the stock wheels for this model, i'll let it slide.


More interior pics please :) (And engine bay)

Yeah Stealthy, you make a good point lol. At first I didn't care about the spoiler but now the paint is starting to come off and it just makes the car look average.

I think Ducker85 posted up a few pics on his post that had the SS lip on another International and I like that a lot.

Yea I think I would like to change the rims. I really like the S2 VY Sig rims if that what they are called? But i see a lot of people already have them, so I will have to find something else :)

Ill try to get some more pics up but I haven't taken any new ones because a few things needed to replace just because of old age, for example. Driver seat has a worn patch, center console lid worn and needs to be replaced, leather trim on the steering wheel is cracked and iv got to replace that as well. On the outside of the car, one side needs the chrome trim to be replaced, a few bumps and scratches here and there that can be expected from how old the car is. Little things that need to be done, but at the price i picked her up for I cant complain at all

I managed to talk the guy selling down to $5,600 for it @ 130k on the clock. He just wanted the cash badly enough. I thought that there might be something wrong with the car, so I had it all checked out and passed with flying colours. The only thing I have to do to the engine is just do a service myself for just piece of mind. Sparks, Oils, the general easy stuff :)
