    i saw a ve ss in the flesh today while i was filling up at the servo when it was driving past, awsome:yeah: , it was a red one with what looked to be with grey coloured inserts in the sideskirts. Also i noticed that the stock exhaust seemed to a bit more beefy that its earlier models.

    going to buy this one :bow:

    I didnt think that there would be any VEs out on the roads yet, that is unless Holden is doing a bit of 'advertising' already. It may have been an HSV VE version...who knows?

    Yeh there are a few around on the road. At work today I went out the back of my plant and had a look at the whole range of VE's that were parked out the back. They look mad. Calais would be my favourite. Saw an SS that had chrome bits all over it and what appeared to be altezza style tailights. Looked the goods.

    I went for a drive at lunchtime at work a couple of days ago (only work 10mins from the factory) and had a drool through the fence at the storage lotout the back.... hmmmmmmm lots of VE's. Just wish they were parked closer to the fence! And that I had my camera with me!

    Saw quite a few on the backs of trucks on south road today heading to the showrooms. Pulled up along side a Caprice and an SV6, look very impressive and imposing in the flesh I must say.

    Except for the Holden Lion on the front and rear, it looks like a debadged SV6... Nice! Be even nicer without that spoiler. It really does spoil the car...
