1987 Holden Commodore SL 3.0 from Australia and New Zealand
One of the hottest looking cars built. Goes well to!!
Well I used to flog my car so I had problems with the automatic transmission.
So I replaced it with a manual, Also the air flow meter, crank angle sensor and radiator needed to be replaced due to the age of the car.
I think all vl owners know about the above problems.
The interior is still perfect as if still in 1987. I have made a few changes to go and look better such as Vy s pack mags, blacked out windows and super low. 2.5 inch exhaust and a pod filter. Its not a drag car and was never intended to be, but I have shocked more than a few people when at the lights.
However now I just enjoy the ride look and feel of a car that to me hasn't dated since 1987.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My VL was my first car and I treated my beast like dirt. I'm in big trouble now as my transmission has gone and I am looking at 1500 - 2000 bucks to recondition it. I don't know what to do because once I fix the trans I would probably struggle to get 2grand for it even though I have pimped the look up heaps, spent heaps on repairs and my $800 sound system.
What would some of you other fellas advise me to do. Keep investing my money in it or just get rid of it for a few hundred dollars for it.
