Cherry Black WH II Caprice, VS exec wagon
ok well i have a huge love for the VL commodore, so much so that in the 6 years ive had my licence ive owned 6 of them... not all of them were kept for long and drivin all the time only 3 were...

but now comes the time where i want to get another one to use as a daily, ive owned 2 wagons one of which i done a efi 5ltr conversion on :yeah: but unfortunately due to moving alot for work reasons i ended up selling it before it was on the road,

ive always wanted to have a clean wagon but i also wanted to find a beige SL sedan to clean up as sort of a tribute to my 1st VL that i had on my L's and P's... man i miss that car,

as its a daily i wouldnt get a v8 or turbo model and ive had a calais before so i would be happy with an SL or executive im not fussed... so guys what you think i should do? and if your in perth and have a VL i have a VB SL/E that i would swap with some cash your way aswell, depending on condition...

If you love the VL, go for it! Buy the car you want, don't let anyone try and talk you out of it.

Normally, I would say no, but after owning six of them already, you are obviously chronically ill and suffering from withdrawal syptoms.

The only obvious cure is to get number seven.

Are there really any decent stock VL's left out there?

You can still get a good stock FJ if you look hard enough :) a VL is no problem
