For that sort of money, especially given the claimed mileage, I would expect it to be perfect.

Which it isn't. Both bumpers are marked, one of the front ABS cables is hanging down and whoever fitted that lpg kit needs shooting.  :-X

The claimed mileage means it's meant to be parked in a fancy garage, and admired. Every extra number on the speedo knocks a chunk off the value.


Welcome to the pointless world of minimal mileage 'collector cars'

If that's what you want from life, surely a monaro/VXR8 and about 5-10k in change would be preferable?

Nice Car! Does Holden Commodore and Omega have same "frame" or is Holden wider. Just thinking is it possible to put that 5.7 to Omega...

There's a handful of common parts, and a visual similarity, but that's it.

The V8 fits. Just. GM actually built a handful of prototypes and started producing parts... The subframes being the most significant part. Most of these were bought by a chap in the States who offered V8 converions of the Cadillac Catera. Some serious digging required to find any now.

Robs 'MV8' has a Monaro front subframe and suspension along with a modified Monaro rear one. Between the air conditioning, lpg and supercharger plumbing there's barely room to drop a fag paper under the bonnet  ;D

The chassis can take the power. Which is nice 8)
