Well my Dad has been driving a Holden HSV GTO for the last week and I took a couple of PICS. They are kind of crappy because I was using one of those new disposible DigiCams (they suck).

It was a 6-speed with Right-hand drive, which was a pain to get use too. It was however, VERY VERY peppy. I got it to squak through 4 gears with little slip. It was rather hard to get the back end to stay straight w/ the traction control off. I was really impressed with its looks, handeling and performance. From the undersatnding I got from my dad this one had the emissions controls and suspension that is going to be used on the North American version. Hopefully if this car catches on there will be some cool competition. Its about time we got a V8 RWD Manual!!

This is the ext pic...

those pix make that car very appealing.
But the 1/4 mile time for me is just too low for the dough
