    See, a lot of people whinge because every second Commodore looks the same as each other, and no one takes a true step 'outside the box'. When someone actually does, it quite often gets slammed for being too 'out there'.

    I like it. Lose the two tone and that could work very well. But I agree 9grand is a bit steep, considering it's mostly cosmetics.

    My comments are not about starting a **** fight, just my 2c

    The VE was already one of Holden's ugliest cars, This just makes it worse..

    P.S- Old pics/info = OLD!

    An thread title, Massively missleading..

    American cars are ugly... yer the camaro is pretty good now but in 3 years no1 is going to care... like the 300c, no1 even looks at them anymore...
    Not to mention the build quality of american cars is vomit and interior is diarrhea.

    Now id be the 1st one to take my hat off to the young fella, great effort. gotta giv credit where credit is due..
    But 9 grand.... i wouldnt ecven go it for 3 grand.... thats my $0.02 anyways...

    oh yer and a ve ss has a beter looking front than any ss holden have made... just my opinion...

    I don't know that anyone is intentionally insulting his work - it's clearly a VERY well made bit of gear - aesthetically though, it's going to have a very limited market.

    Ever seen a beautiful woman's backside in a bar only to have her turn around and display the most hideous frontal features you could imagine?

    Personally, I like it. Well done to him.

    For those who say "if you want a camaro/chev, go buy one". Not everyone has the money to spend that much on the outlay of the car.
    Having something and working on it gradually/when you can afford it, I personally don't see too much of an issue with it.

    Each to their own though.

    No, it's called having an opinion. People know what they like, and what they dont like. Just because he's young and has done something doesnt mean it's the best thing on the planet, nor does it mean everybody should like it just because he's young and has "had a go"
