    Ok, well I'm looking at doing something different with my VN bonnet cause it looks plain to me.

    So I was thinking of a Monaro style bonnet...As Group A bulges have been done to death...

    Does anyone have any pictures of a VN with a monaro bonnet or has anyone seen one before?

    Also does anyone have any other suggestions?

    I just put a poll up, so please vote for what you think! Also here is a pic of the bonnet bulge with the opening thats in the poll (thanks to Nutkase for the pic...hope you dont mind!):

    Yeah thats the advantage of the group a with the opening i reckon, its very rare. Theres alot of cars with the monaro bonnet now, although i have yet to see one on a VN but its only a matter of time. But the monaro bonnets do look very sweet..

    yeh, i agree that the monaro bonnets look sweet as, but i dont think they will look any good on a vn, i have seen on ebay some people selling vn bonnets with the xr8 buldge, i havent seen that before

    Damn it, i meant to vote other, but i voted leave it plain. I reckon a BA falcon bulge could lookk fairly good on the VN, im not a fan of bulges and stuff tacked onto the top, but a BA bulge could looks fairly tidy

    I agree the BA bulge would look nice, but I dont wanna blur the line between Holden and Ford. I'd rather just blur the line between Holden models :p

    The VN group A with the opening is the go. It would have to help quite a bit with airflow and it keeps it looking original (i don't know how much i like the late model body parts on the early modeal cars).

    Well I guess its now a matter of finding someone to do a Monaro bonnet for a VN!

    Anyone know a place in Adelaide that might be able to do it?
