This one had a 308 V8 (5ltr) and some had the smaller 253 V8 (4.2ltr) both run a 3 speed "trimatic" nice sounding motor I had one in a smaller VH Commodore SL/E, man I loved that car would set off car alarms everywhere and rattle the pictures on the wall when it was running in the garage. Then some lowlife stole it :cry: :cry:

what a small world after my first VH was stolen I replaced it with a VL Calais Turbo and although it was quick I liked the V8 rumble so replaced it with a Blue over Silver "Shadow Tone" VH SL/E

and that was a nice car.....no it didnt get stolen I got married and it went to help buy a house :cry: :cry:
