    Locally, there's been an ornage/red Chev RHD VE Lumina (SS setup) hovering around and left parked on a main road. Didn't get a chance for a pic, but someone had already decide to nick the rear badge!!

    Also seen a Chev VE Statesman in loverrrly gloos balck, no it wasn't a VZ series.

    Seems like they are getting ready already...

    I saw the orange Chev between Geelong and Torquay and a Chev SV6 (badged like this and both RHD) at a lookout spot in Torquay. If I get the pics my mate take I might throw them up.

    I think you'll find it's Ignition, not orange.

    Yeh I have seen an orange VE SS or SSV with Chevvy badges on it near Ferntree Gully Holden.
    I noticed the VE but then when i saw the Chevvy badges was a bit confused that they would be testing them out here.
    Didn't notice if it was RHD or not.

    do you have to be so pedantic about it? who cares if someone calls it 'orange' and someone calls it 'ignition'. did you stop and think that maybe some people are not familiar with the correct colour names? we all knew what vztrt was talking about so get over it.

    i suppose you are going to rip into me now because i dont have 'phantom mica' as my colour where it says 'my ride'...

    Hey Troy, it's phantom and heron... There is no nickel area here. It's called Ignition and that's the end of it :D lol




    PS - in case some people don't get it, this is meant as a funny reply...

    If anyone is interested. In Melbourne Sunshine Kevin Dennis holden they have in there Yard at least 4 VE Commodore sitting there, I got in as far as i could to look at them and they look great, The best view is from the rear on a slight angle so you can see down the side and see both the big guards:D Yum

    OK well Gerald Slaven Holden in Canberra let me sit in one and look all through it incl. boot under the bonnet etc (SV6 and SSV)... Very nice car! He told me they're meant to be under wraps until the 14th. Can't be test driven until after the 14th cause they aren't allowed to register them until then. So that means any on the road are being driven by Holden (not dealer) employees.

    VE Chevy

    I was on the Gold Coast / Brisbane Highway today spotted a white Left Hand Drive VE Chevy. The driver was quite amused at my attempts to snap some photos. Had Vic Rego, Quad pipes. Looked like a "Calais" style spec. Will try to photo shop the pics a bit then put em up.

    He called me today and took me into the yard for a look, I was hoping for something other then Omega, I liked the omega even the 16" rims didn't look as small on it as everyone says, Then he took me back across the road out the back and thank god the SV6 Berlina Calais was there:D Me was in love:D
    The quads on the berlina didn't look as good as the SV6 twin. might only be the berlina that does that because it's pretty much the omega rear.
    It made the HSV maloo Z next to it look bad:D.
    Not as big as you think when you here it;'s the biggest Commodore ever it keeps it's size well i like that.
    Also from a distance it has the hint of a bonnet bulge:p.
