    SSM11K Number Plates are in storage, will be back on this next week. Sad day to see the VY go, but as they say - one door closes, another door opens!

    Ahhaaaaah!! Cheers hak, in time we will see.

    ####ing oath, everytime I walked past it at work today, I'd just stop and stare at it... :eek:
    Cheers mate!

    No chance! :p Haha, between both the wing and the front bumper bar, the Senator wins always! :D (IMO)

    Thanks, I'm sure you know what its like driving a car like this with your Clubby, awesome machines.

    Bloody oath, its mint as. Holden did alright there!

    You must get one. ;)

    Cheers bloke!
    Cheers for the kind words fella's, I'm like a kid on Christmas morning, that just got a really sweet ass present. :D

    ####ing hell! Now that's what I call a step up. VY to VE Senator!

    I'm going to assuming you basically blew a load in your pants the moment you sat in this thing! Haha.

    Very nice mate. Love the Sentators!

    Hahahahaa... Didn't even get to sit in it, saw it on the platform/ramps, opened the passenger front door and "I jizzed in ma pants!"
    Drove an hour and a half to see it; Just went down to "look at it." :rofl2:

    Hell yeah its a huge step up from the VY. In absolutely every aspect!! It doesn't feel real yet :D

    It all started from looking at a VZ Clubby 60,xxxkays, on Ebay for like 22g, then it snowballed, and when the dust settled I didn't have a VY anymore! lmfao.

    Cheers Jest.

    Farrrrrk Yeah! Should be tomorrow, didn't finish work until 4:30pm this arvo and had to help my sister out, then the darkness appeared again.. :/

    Aww, yeah, that's a bit of a sore point... lol. Used Car Salesmen are one of the lower forms of the human species! VY got traded for a mere $5000. They took $8990 off the price of the car, but on paper it was only 5g.

    Start saving and by the time you're off your P's it'd be well within your reach mate!

    Yeah the 'A' Pillars are massive! lol, bloody safety features - airbags. :p

    Getting used to the car now, been in it for a little over a week or so. Feel's so nice, only thing is the front bumper is wayy lower than anything else I've driven, even lower than the VY was.

    Cheers Jonnoo, really happy with her. :)

    It is a bit of an upgrade hey :D
    And it does, its a joy to drive!

    Thanks for the kind words Pickle, I'm stoked with it!

    Cheers mate, I swear if I could get it into the bedroom, the Missus would be sleeping on the couch!!! :rofl2:


    Pics are uploading... Slowly :)

    Cheers man, time flies so start saving. If you change your mind by then, it'd be a good house deposit! :p lol. There was a Grange there next to this one, definately a nice Sled.

    It was either Cam and diff gears for the VY, or an upgrade.
    The VY was getting old, had close to 200,xxxkays on it, I had it for 7 years - time for a change.

    LOL, Long-ish story.

    Shortened version:

    When we were younger, family vacation, young kids with firearms, (me 13, sisters' 15 and 17, with very close supervision), Sister is a better shot than me (I got a rabbit - Thumper - think Bambii the movie), dead Fox, pliers, Fox Tail, used to hang Fox Tail from my second car, got old and fragile, always whinged how I liked the Fox Tail in my old car, Christmas Present, new Fox Tail, hanging in Senator, Smile on my face from memories as a kid. :D

    Keep up with that? :rofl2:

    Haha makes sense.

    Yeah soon as i get a tune on this I'll be saving for sure.. If I've had my car for just over a year, and spent 14k on it, I should be able to save for sure..

    Only problem is i want a grange or statesman but in Manual :(
