Do you have red hair?

A few things:
1. Needs an angle grinder on the springs
2. HSV stickers???? get them off.
3. VS badge on the front, get rid of it.
4. Rear venetions HA HA HA HA. Take them off too, grandpa.

Good work though, excellent effort.

1. When i get some money im going to have it lowered,
2. They are there for fun
3. The VS badge looks better then the VL badge, and a hell of a lot better than 2 holes.
4. The idea is to stop prying eyes from seeing my speakers, my mates have had there cars broken into and speakers stolen.

and no i dont have red hair.

thanks for you comments.

Leave that Machine alone

it's fully sick sleeper style

If I owned it it would leave it stock
then drop a twin cam head then matching turbo
brake upgrade (but nothing fancy somthing stock looking , use a Water-air intercooler no fancy thing hanging out front) 11second sleeper

I love it's look leave it alone it's real cool looking

real sleeper material

Posted by: Guest_Oosty on July 5, 2003

yeah mate looks nice n neat but lose rear venetion n drop it n it'll look awsome. good stuff

Posted by: Guest_Daniel Jones on August 1, 2003

My mates reckon you ought to put a turbo in it , put a calais bodykit and dump it on its nuts. I on the other hand would just love to see it lowered. Although, the venecian blinds must go, why block the tinted rear windshield with that thing?

errr..... think all aerials are that length, mine was massive to an my VL (Fake_HDT).... ermm.gif i think..... never stretched out though! looks like a giant remote control car when u do!! lol icon4.gif

Posted by: Guest_HSV_FREEK on October 11, 2003

Nice commo all round buddy but i just dont like 2 things... The rear window venetian thing ( good idea) but doesnt suit the car and the second thing is, take the rims off and put a set of 20inch cromies on the car with low profile tyres! Ur car will then have sum looks about it! smile.gif

Posted by: Guest_HSV_FREEK on October 11, 2003

One more thing i 4got to mention, The cream colour trimmings around the side windows, paint them black it'll make the tints look darker

Posted by: VLCrawfo on October 13, 2003 [ Car Profile ]

good idea with the window surrounds, im planning on doing that this summer, also the venetian currently has been off the car for some time.

Posted by: Guest_Sugar n Spice on October 21, 2003

[SIZE=7]buddy, the interior on ur car is the only good thing about it....give it a paint job, get a body kit and get some new mags biggrin.gif . If u wish to reply...reply to

Posted by: Guest_jayme on November 16, 2003

Looks good dude. I have an 88 beige NA which is totally stock apart from stereo and interceptors. Your car has given me some good ideas on how I can get it to look alrite. Good work.

Posted by: Guest_Mik_VL_Man on November 20, 2003

biggrin.gif Nice work mate, your given me some good ideas on what i can do to my VL Ex. I agree with everyone else though, get rid of the rear window venetian shades!!!! Also if you put on some 17" SS Mags it would look a lot better.....Oh and one more thing.... what RMS is your 6" ????

Posted by: Guest_humpty dumpty on December 22, 2003

uhmm bud, not sure if ur pics are old or what, but that's a berlina interior, not calais

Posted by: Guest_Guest_Stevo on December 29, 2003

Yep definately lose the venetian shades makes it look a bit yuk other wise nice ride man

Posted by: VLCrawfo on December 30, 2003 [ Car Profile ]

as for the berlina not calais comment about my interior, i assure you its a series 1 calais interior, my parents have a berlina, so i know for a fact its not a berlina, maybe the photos dont show it too well, i dont know.


Posted by: Badger on May 21, 2005 [ Car Profile ]
