    Why does the Middle East, and Africa get more LS1s than we do?

    Because this is the country that is so fucking ignorant that half the population can't even point to afganastan on the map. You expect people here to make practical, wise choices when it comes to cars? :rofl: Just look at half the car threads, misinformation and perception is more important than fact.

    We probably assemble cars better than you guys to be honest. Or at least we paint them much better. :o

    I doubt any new Monaro will be assembled here. The VE is going to spawn 20 or so cars worldwide including the Camaro.

    most of the Gen III and GenIV V8s actualy meet the criteria for low emissions standards. :o

    again thanks for proving my point about ignorance on these vehicles.

    Can't remember much about the paint, in general terms of fit and finish my experience with Yank cars has been they're pretty shithouse.

    It's likely to be Monaro/GTO mostly the same again, given the comparative size of the two markets building in the US makes sense.
