    Ahh sorry. Few more little things :p

    Auto.
    Series 1.
    All stock. My dad is one of those people who likes cars to be EXACTLY as they were when they came out of the factory. He doesnt even want to know about changing the exhaust or rims.
    Tinted windows.
    Holden Upgraded alarm.

    The P Plate does that :p

    Just remember mike, you CAN lose your licence if the wrong police officer pulls you over in that.

    Cool ride :)

    ^ The old man left the choice of car up to me :p (I'm an only child, hence, a spoilt brat) haha :p
    He wanted to get a BMW 318i. Don't get me wrong, I love beamers, just not so much the 318i, and not when its that over an SS :p Plus I liked the idea of telling all my friends that as soon as I turned 16 I'd be driving it :D

    And minux, I was driving it back from getting the window fixed (my dad isn't able to drive at the moment :() And there were 3 police cars outside the homeless shelter place (which is across the road from the holden dealer) and they asked me to pull over, checked out the car, asked if it was mine and why I was driving a V8, I explained and they let me off :D

    God, after all this time (over 8 months), I'd forgotten what it felt like to drive a V8. The power steering is so much tighter too! I love it. It feels like its glued to the road... And the sound... :D:D:D

    The 5.0lt would come under the power to weight wouldnt it?

    I have no idea with these new law, I havent even bothered to look into them even though they effect me :p ahh well

    I think you should be right though, since you got your licence + car before the new laws.. who knows

    He wanted to get houthouse green, But when we went to have a look at it in the showroom they only had one, and it was this one...

    And I always wanted black so I convinced him to get it, haha.

    I like hothouse green, but black has to be my favorite (especially when its all clean and shiney) :D

    If I end up with it, first thing will be black leather seats.

    Leather and a sunroof are the only things I wish it had :p
