I bought it on DVD and I still crack up everytime I watch it. My favorite part is where they cut the roof of the wagon off with an axe and say that it's all rusted and is full of termites :rofl:

VY CUSTOM.
could possilbly do a PIMP MY RIDE Aussie version definately not Overhaulin as said before to hard to get parts for most of our classics
That could be the answer, making alot of custom parts might cost them a fair bit..

Good point about the infrastructure. It all relates to size of market and demand. I am often amazed when watching Overhaulin' where they enter warehouses stuffed full of NOS or replicas parts for an astonishing range of vehicles.

I suppose that over the years, with the multitude of US models that were made, there would have been huge stocks of parts unused when production of each model ceased.

Rare Spares might like to see it happen, but they might be a little light on with stock after a couple of days......
Hello guys, i also have seen the show as they do a sterling job in having their vehicles rebuilt. The Demand is smaller than America, so would be an industry's problem. As for Commodores it is an American mechanical car, everything else can be done here.
Hot Rods is an example as they have to do everything from the ground and up!! Another thing is the Engineer's certification.
So i know Holden is no more, so too is Ford. If we were to do what the show Overhaulin has done we will be importing our parts also the specialty people like Fitter's & Turners, Welders, Spray painter's artists. Upholstery i nearly forgot. Ooop's So there's an a small army of men & women to have in this shed.
Oh can you imagne the Job Sheet as you see the list of Parts and man hours with the $$$

Maybe so, but then America is very show worthy as Presentation is everything. they don't show everything
