    Yet another car I'd love to drive here.

    (actually, just ship one to Hawaii. Screw the mainland)

    no pictures ever seem to get the hsv taillights illuminated

    they look tough as during a dusk/night time drive.

    If the owner is the bloke in the first picture, the comment I made about cashed up bogans buying them looks very true!

    haha no doubt

    people buy a SS because its an awesome performance car for the money, people who buy a w427 are just super rich, usually from working in the mines or real estate, and just must have the holden.

    Bogan is like white trash here. Lower class redneck kinda - although a wealthy bogan sounds like an oxymoron.

    Heaps of wealthy bogans here at the moment. Huge demand for trade skills and just general man power out the mines. (No im not implying all mine workers are bogans). Not unusual for semi-unskilled workers to be making 100k/year atm.

    Badass looking car, except for one thing: the leather. All those creases make it look like it's been sat in for 5 years :ugh:

    American Eagle was consulted for interior design, so they gave it the 'worn-tough' look

    Not that it would deter me from buying it in the slightest bit, but that parking brake handle looks absolutely atrocious.

    Those wheels are kinda cool looking..... its a very sharp looking car IMO. Funny how the aussies know how to style this car, but Pontiac makes it look kinda boring.
