I attended the Sydney launch of the GTS-R. They had an interesting glow to them under the street lights.
Also spoke to the dealer about an F20 they sold that funnily enough is the one i own.

Is it true that the GTSR colour yellow is baised on a Melb taxi back then?


Spot on with the colour, latest Australian Muscle Car Magazine (Issue 27) has an article on the 10 muscle cars under $30,000, it lists the GTS-R and mentions HSV slipping a them through the Holden paint shop when the cabs were being painted.

Very funny VL GRA,i asked ITS5.7 about that and the only thing he came up with was a sunroof.Up in QLD our taxis are either orange or white so i'm lucky.Hopefully no-one will yell out taxi when i'm crusing around except a Melbarian lol.

Do you reckon you could get the build numbers as i'm trying to record how many are around.So far i know of 2 here in Qld with a 3rd one that use to be in the HSV carclub.As for buying another one-i'm happy with the one i got plus the Walky,also there's no more room left in my garage.I'll let ITS5.7 know as he has stated since we picked up mine last weekend it has grown on him lol.

Heres a pic of what a melbourne taxi looked like back in 1996-this is for you VL GRA lol.I guess this is what you meant by the optional bubble on the roof.

are u sure the gts-r colour was based/copied from the colour of melb taxis?

cos i thought melb taxis only started being yellow around the vs/vt time.. before that they could be white, etc

so i was just trying to figure out the time differences??

Thats a good question but i've checked my build plate and mine is 2 1996 which makes it a VS model.Would be nice if we could get some solid info to back up the claim of the GTSR being based on the taxi shell.Its got me fascinated.

I remember going to melbourne motor show when they had the gtsr on display. Everyone was all over it as hsv hadn't produced anything special since the walky. I remember at the time it was called the taxi as it was the same colour. They had just started making the taxis at the same time in that colour. Before that they were white. Better then being orange like up in qld.
I remember at the show me and my mates thought it looked crap. I only started really liking them about 3 years ago. I too would love to have 1 to match the walky!
