I was the same with the Walkys-never liked them in the magazines till my Dad bought his in early 1990's but i have always liked the GTSR's.I must say though after driving the GTSR lately and jumping back in the Walky you appreciate how far technology has come in 8 years-like cruise control and trip computers lol.Also wouldn't mind having the 6 speed in the Walky especially on the highway.

Here are some pics i took when i went for a jaunt up the north coast last friday.Beautiful weather-shame about the gridlock traffic on the way home through brissie,should've known better.

Looks great, Still reckon the VS model was the last of the good lookin HSV's. Loved the GTS-R when it came out. All my mates thought it looked like ****, Must admit, like the walky, it looks better in the metal than on paper.
Cheers

I thought about buying the fake one from NSW but then an original one came up for sale here in QLD.But i must say the BANANR one looks like the real deal from the outside and ITS5.7 has informed me he saw it up here a month ago cruising around.Here are some pics of the fake one.
