    Ok - the old SS-V was getting a bit long in the tooth so I put it out to pasture and decided to get a new work hack. Anyways, here's what I got:

    HSV E3 Senator Signature

    Motor: 6.2L LS3
    Transmission: Manual
    Color: Alto Grey
    Interior: Light Urban

    Options:
    Sunroof
    DVD Player
    Bi-Modal Exhaust

    Accessories: Tinted Windows
    Tow bar

    Mods: Ripshifter.
    Random herbs and spices :p

    Future mods: Depends what I hit

    I wouldnt exactly call it a "work hack" Id reserve that for a **** car that you dont care about too much.

    Looks pretty sweet.

    not normally a fan of pale interiors - but the two-tone works really nicely. Nice work, Reaper.

    Bahahahaa, you know you're doing something right when your "daily work hack" is a Signature Senator!! :rofl2: Love the wording. :p

    Gotta be happy with that hey Reap, looks very tidy, you wouldn't happen to have any shots of the dash surround, and some more of the interior? And maybe some exterior shots at a nice location somewhere...! ;) lol.

    I get weird looks off the Holden Dealers as I walk around 'molesting' their HSV's sitting in the dealership. :hiding: So I haven't had the chance to see one up close!! :)

    Yeah - will try to get some decent shots tomorrow but I'm not a great photographer what so ever. I am quite enjoying the manual as a nice change. I'm sure there can't be more than a dozen or so made thus far (E3).

    Mine does. The handbrake is my only real issue with the VE interior. It's awkward to use and looks ugly. I know why they designed it like that, but that doesn't make it ok.

    Loving the wheels on it, Reaper.. very classy!
