no and necessary
What am i missing here..?
I figured it was a thread about commodores lol
Big dollar setup right there, even had the data cassette, nice.
I've never understood the hatred for the ZB's appearance. To me, it's quite well styled, perhaps a little generic, but with the number of manufacturers and models available these days, how do you make your car truly distinctive.
And, if it had been locally made, would it have been so reviled?
I dunno if it is 'reviled'. Just not different enough from the mainstream FWDs to standout. Bland. Boring colours not to attract attention.
As I wrote here way back when, there was a ZB on display at the 2017 Newcastle Supercars. Normally an unreleased new Commodore would have a 6 deep crowd around it. Not even the attractive, half dressed young chickybabes accompanying it could drum up interest from the passing crowd.
It is well know amongst locals that Newcastle is an advertising experimental area …..... if advertising works here, it will work anywhere.
( V8s + Novocastrians + NRL = Bogantown )
I have one of these still
They sold more of them than Honda sold Accords and Mazda sold 6's, in the same timeframe, apparently.
Soon be worth more than a used ZB.
My first, part time, job was selling them.
I agree, if you look at the side by side pics in post #10..ZB almost looks like a natural evolution of VF.
I don't hate the ZB, I don't mind the styling(its a bit generic, like all the designers are using the same CAD software), all the variants I've driven are nice to drive, and nice to be in.
But they're just an average FWD vehicle, with not enough grunt to make me want to spend the money to own one.
If it was supplied to me as a company car, I don't think I'd complain too much...
If I was in the market, i'd certainly look closely at the AWD VXR with the 3.6.
Have you driven one? They are nice to drive, but still, not enough grunt...
