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

OK, thanks, better to think 3,2+AR35 then

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

That's almost VXR8 money, and the VXR8 is a much better car.

Silly money.

But look at the Lotus Carlton market.  Few years years ago there were 2 cars that stood out in the market. 1 was a garage owner that had his in a car showroom from day 1 and just for show , when he put it up for sale it was slow to move as people wouldnt pay the money & the other was a 20K miles car.  The later was for sale for ages for 20,000.

Now if you want a Lotus Carlton a scabby abused one starts at 80K

Plus when I looke on Autotrader  last night I see all the Omega were twice the price they would have been a few years ago., saying that there were 3 low mielage cars shame they were basic models.

I love the way it looks like a Honda from behind and a Proton from the front. :D

My first thoughts were it looked like a Civic saloon.  :y


A facelift Omega and sixth gen Honda Accord are very similar. But cars have always been like that.

Not quite mad enough yet. I thought I'd test the water and rang a well known online classic car auction site. They weren't interested in my immaculate MV6 :'( but at least it means I get to keep it for a bit longer ;D
When I got it out of storage the other day for its MOT the owner of the barn (which is full of classic exotics) said it was his favourite and he leaves it near the door, because he knows that it will always start and just sits there purring away while he has to push the other cars in and out.  Needless to say it sailed through the MOT without a single advisory :y And the air con still works!

When you've got one as good as yours sounds keep it, you just don't see them anymore.
