1987 Holden Commodore Executive VL 3.0 straight 6 from Australia and New Zealand
Sweet, neat and will beat!
Rear shocks broken.
A few dash bulbs have blown.
Air conditioning switch doesn't work.
Slight rust on the front and rear window sills.
Car sometimes cuts out for no reason and has a really rough acceleration, although I've heard the crank angle sensor could have something to do with this. I might look into it.
My Vl is a mad piece of machinery, it goes like the clappers and pulls the smelliest burnouts ever!
The car has had, since I bought it in 2000, a full clean out and a new carpet fitted, K&N pod type filter installed in place of original air box with plumbing for cool air from the front grille.
Oil cooler also installed on the right side front bumper.
New shocks will be fitted all round soon along with new pads and DBA cross drilled and slotted rotors.
Other than this the car is a white executive with the dark gray trim and persuit wheels, although there is a nice shiny dump pipe on the end, and totally non see through windows except for the front :)
Badges are reomoved and the car really goes off the line, not to mention magnetising the chicks to it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
