    LOL. Because race car!

    Apparently the HSV memcal can change the make of a vehicle from a Commodore to a HSV. And those Monaro 'big brakes' look very standard VT to me. And I assume the fire extinguisher is because the car is so **** it keeps catching fire.

    Car is unroadworthy due to the back seat. And the colour scheme.........yeah no.

    You answered these concerns in your first line.

    Most organised track days require harnessing, hence the back seat being removed for stiffener bar, and a fire extinguisher as a precaution. The removal of the rear seat is a weight saver for said track days.


    This car is not being advertised as a street/daily car. It's being advertised as a weekend track day car.

    IMO a lot of work as been done in regards to weight loss and stiffener bar+harness fitment. For 3k it is a decent entry level track car already set up for you. You would need a trailer to move it around as it is clearly not registered or able to be. IMO if you are looking for a track car search further than gumtree. But yes, you could buy it as a parts car also, however being it was a track car would you want to? It has clearly been thrashed regularly

    Exactly gaiter, for $3k it's had a lot of stuff done to make it a fun viable amateur race car ie suspensions mods for a start. No one would buy this to re-register it. And of course it's been thrashed -it's a race car. That's the point.

    Who's to say all the mods have been done right? That cheap just screams cut corners and thrashed to me.

    This is true, any car with mods done to it has that unknown of whether they were done right. Cheap could also mean the wifey wants it gone ASAP
