Spotted at Mitsi factory carpark

This was another VL I spotted in the Mitsubishi carpark about 18yrs ago.
It was an ex cop (SAPOL) light blue VL with maroon/burgandy sv3800VN mags on it. I have edited the maroon/burgandy mags on an SAPOL ex cop blue VL below:

Yeah that was me. My car also doesn't have any window tint.

Spotted VL wrecks

Sometime at the end of August I spotted 2 x VL sedan wrecks on a farm in Sellicks Beach but I don't know the owner. One is beyond repair and is parked next to a wrecked HQ Holden sedan. The other VL is a dark green (similar to British Racing green) Berlina up on blocks, looks like a project car that has been sitting unfinished for a while as it was quite dirty and out in the weather behind a shed rather than in the shed. Here are some pictures I took of them:

Spotted Burgandy VL Wagon

About 5:30pm on Friday 13th Sept 2019 at Aberfoyle Park - Spotted tidy Burgandy VL Wagon with MX Grey bumper bars and 5 spoke silver alloy wheels.

I have edited a red VL wagon with similar mags to look like the burgandy VL that I saw and posted it below. Sorry the edit isn't fabulous but many of the Burgandy VL wagon images on the internet search were Calais or single tone thus I edited a Red one to look like a burgandy one. See below.

[COLOR="Silver"]

---------- Post added 16-09-19 at 19:42 ----------

Monday 16th Sept2019 - What a day!! Spotted three (3) VL's on the roads today.
1st was a white VL executive sedan at Morphett Vale parked on the side of the road - it had stock hubcaps and pale blue thin pinstripes down the sides of the doors and panels and MX grey bumper bars.
Very similar to this picture:



Then a few moments later in traffic at Reynella I spotted the 2nd VL. It was a white VL Berlina sedan with Silver stock rims and window tint.
Very similar to this picture:



And the 3rd VL was a wagon I have seen before. It was a pale gold colour with black simmons mags. It was Between the suburbs of Woodcroft and Morphett Vale.
Very similar to this picture of a wagon that I have edited black simmons mags onto:

Spotted 2 x VL's today, great day!!

Again - another good day. This time I spotted a white VL executive sedan driving through a carpark in Marion but I couldn't see its wheels.
Looked a lot like this picture:



Then I spotted a Maroon over gold VLC sedan on Main Sth Road, FLAGSTAFF HILL heading towards the city. It had very poor paintwork that was faded and it had standard VLC wheels that were dull looking. The car needed a good tidy up.
It also had a black magnetic CB aerial and cable in the middle of the boot.
I have edited this picture to look very similar to the car I saw:

Spotted Blue VL Berlina

11.15am on Monday 23 Sept 2019 at Reynella - spotted a light blue VL berlina sedan with factory standard hubcaps, red Berlina stripes along the bumpers and doors and it had a black 70's or 80's style rear window sunshade external louver. Number plates started with UEY*** but I didn't see the rest and didn't see who was driving or if any passengers. Car looked quite tidy and it looked very similar to the picture I have posted below:

And later in the day in Moprhett Vale again I saw this VL wagon that I've seen several times before. It was a pale gold colour with black simmons mags.
Very similar to this picture of a wagon that I have edited black simmons mags onto:

Website offline

The calaisturbo website has been offline since about 5 days ago so I was initially unable to post this spotted VL.
Saturday 26th Oct 2019 - spotted single tone silver VL sedan in car yard on Grand Junction road. You can see the name of the car yard in one of the pictures posted below.
The price of the car is $10888 or something like that but my son went in there and the dealer said the lowest he would go is $7999 and no less as they are hard to find now (VLs). These are the pictures of the actual car:
