1990 HSV VN SS Group A 4997 v8 from Australia and New Zealand
The true Aussie muscle car!
The steering rack needed replacing.
Fuel tank was damaged because the car sits so low.
The front spoiler is easily damaged pulling out of driveways and gutters, take care!
This car draws attention, much of it unwelcome. The local police have found it fun to pick on me for obvious reasons. I have also been the victim of idiot vandals who have ruined my paint twice.
This car hammers! I have made a 'few' subtle engine improvements such as a complete engine rebuild by Pavtek in Melbourne and it is an absolute weapon in a straight line.
The already excellent handling has been improved by a radical lowering job which has it sitting about 7 cm off the ground!
I have had it re sprayed in pearlescent blue and it is a stunning car visually as well as in performance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Did you want to sell the car and how much are you asking.

I just bought a VN group a as well. I would have to agree with you they are a pretty awesome car, but theres a couple of things I don't agree with that seems to be popular. firstly these cars were built to race on circuits, not 1/4 miles, and definitely don't look the part one the drag strip, one thing I did notice about mine when I got it is how solid it feels when cornering hard. the engine is a bit on the soft side, but that's easily changed. the other thing that makes me shudder is hearing that these cars are painted in a different color from the original. oh well as long as yours are modified it makes mine even rarer.
