    Hey...I once owned that GTR-X.I bought the car from Holdens in 1987 when it was put up for sale by tender...with the condition it was never to be registered..it had no vin or serial number..just the photos that came with it. The outer body mould was given to me by a guy who rescued it from an old fiberglass company in SEAFORD who were going to make the bodies for Holdens.
    I sold it to a couple of young guys from Leongatha or thereabouts... who were going to restore it !! The car you have is no-3 pre-production model. no-2 was sent to the USA and destroyed. no-1 is still owned by HOLDENS.
    The engine that was in the car when I sold it was a blue motor out of a commodore..the only glass that came with it was the door glass with electric motors & mechanisms.....
    I still have the sales receipt from Holdens .......

    Cheers Monza

    Any chance of scanning the receipt or something? Would be interesting to see.

    Sounds about right mate. The girlfriends grandpa said his friend drove a forklift thought a shell to destroy it.

    Sorry, I didn't realise a receipt for a car you bought 25 years ago would be such a secret.

    We've only got your word that you owned it. Hmmmm...
