06', one of these for the kids across the ocean:

It's pretty much a Pontiac G8 (The Pontiac actually uses the base of the VE series Holdens and is then changed cosmetically; there virtually the same car).

Yeah, i'd kill to just sit in one while it's being driven.. Nice watermarks over the pic, so true!

Does HSV have anything like the new GTO?
http://www.coolspic....allpapers-4.jpg
It's beautiful. I also love the back end of it.

I do believe we're getting that over here very soon but with the HSV badge on it and a slightly different style.

nothing in this country is "well priced"
i have to work an hour just to afford a fucking kebab.... its not fair
the thing i really hate though, good muscle cars are very hard to find here
the only way you are sure to get one is having it shipped over and having the steering changed... which costs a fuckload
and the car laws here suck ass

friend of mine has a porsche 911 turbo, brought it with him when he came over from the UK
he had to renovate the engine and cut the power in 3/4 just to be able to drive it
soon as he got the permit he put it right back in, lmao

even has a fuckin stealth speed radar detector in his car, its cool as hell

With the left hand drive cars it depends on their age, if they're older than 35 years they're exempt from that rule. So really you could have a left hand drive 67 Charger or w/e and it would be legal.

PTrain: Looks like fun! Do you do any racing in the Mitsu or just test it out for fun? I'm assuming you're doing some kind of speed test or obstacle course in that pic?


That picture was from a while ago when I did some autocrossing (pretty much you just drive around some cones in a big parking lot). Now I try to go to open track days when I have the money. It's not specifically set up for track racing though, I still drive it to school every day.

Why the hell would you double clutch anyways? Lol, maybe if you were using it to downshift while rally racing or auto-crossing.. :\

Automatic is okay, I don't have a problem driving either. Automatic is fine if you'd rather just not have to worry about the stick shifting ect. It doens't make it any less interesting.

you cant really drag in an auto
and double clutching is useful if you need to go around a turn that is coming up fast

All of the serious drag race cars are automatics. A proper automatic trans will shift faster and more reliably then any person.

Isn't the minimum wage in aus like $20?

I think you guys have it pretty easy in terms of importing cars. All you have to do is switch the car to right hand drive, and from what it looks like detune it a bit for inspection, right? There are some cars that you just can't import into the US no matter what you do. An r32 skyline for example, which really pisses me off.

And don't you guys have some 70s muscle cars like the Ford Falcon? Now I don't think there are any 60s american muscle cars there, but it's not like we are swimming in them over here either. After the Barrett Jackson car show got big all the old muscle cars skyrocketed in price.

You can get cars in left hand drive, but I think you need a special license to do that. It's expensive as hell to import cars here because of our manufacturing industry being so crap, it would cost heaps with the tariffs.

The new Porsche Panamera is awesome.
Its the first 4-door car Porsche has made, looks nice and classy too.
Also the Porsche GT is just about the sexiest thing ever.

Actually no minimum wage is something shit like under 10 dollars an hour. Equates to about 7 dollars American.
Importing cars we get his with a shit tax depending on the model, it's power to weight ratio, year etc.
You don't see many cars from the 70's over here, we have them but there are so few same with cars from the 60's. I see Ford Mustangs and other American muscle cars from the 60's from time to time in my area. Mainly around winter time when all the collectors come out for winter sun to show off their pride and joy and then have some bastard steal it.
