misk 27-11-08 16:01

Psi_Wagon 27-11-08 17:04

Oliver 27-11-08 17:15

We actually had one before we moved out to Australia in 1985. The 2 door is an Opel Senator.

SIKVLT 27-11-08 17:34

From memory do a search under Vauxhall Cavalier as well - think it mirrors what we call VB-VC

Oliver 28-11-08 00:24

Cavalier was smaller... the Carlton ran from 1978 which is the VB-VC equivilant.

calais3L 28-11-08 14:44

Cavalier was based on the J Platform; Cadillac Cimmaron, Pontiac J2000, Toyota Cavalier, Vauxhall Cavalier, Opel Ascona, Isuzu Aska and Holden Camira.

Oliver 20-12-08 01:06

when they first got one out here for testing for holden the car nearly tore itself apart at the fire wall, they were junk and fell apart on dirt roads our vb had to be designed alot different lol

2HRD4U 20-01-09 13:40

you should remove this car from this site, it dont belong here

misk 20-01-09 13:54

lol wtf you talking bout mate

Oliver 21-01-09 02:44

Thanks for that comment... I thought I might share the pics etc with my fellow CT members seen as it is a distant cousin of the VL from the UK.

My parents had one of these when we still lived in England in the early 80's 2 litre 4 cylinder! :(

Years ago Lotus got hold of this car and twin turbo'ed it and whacked a body kit on it, looked ok for it's time when it first came out. Went like the clappers back then too.

5spdvl 14-02-09 23:52

SYC-030 26-02-09 08:07
