Looks like it has 90/10 shocks in the front or perhaps no engine currently in it, might be why it's at a motor shop. Looks nice.

Blue VL Berlina non turbo in Mannum SA


Blue VL Berlina non turbo in Mannum SA today at about 3.00pm. Looked exactly like the above picture including the same hubcaps, bumper colour etc but did not have a 'turbo' badge on the boot. It looked very stock and tidy.

I thought I saw your car for sale on Gumtree in the last year or so. Are you the new owner since that advert or did you think of selling and decided t keep it. By he way - nice VL and I like your mag wheels.

Nitron VL

Good idea keeping your car, it looks great and momo stars are awesome. I've had my Tuxedo Black VL Calais since 1997 and I'm not selling it, had plenty of offers over the years but never want to sell it. Even in 2017 I had several offers over $20k and it's not in Showroom condition at the moment. I went on one of the FaceBook Friday night cruises early last year and saw a few nice VL's, do you ever go on cruises in yours?

I see. That's why I haven't seen your car on cruises because I've never been on those cruises. I hoping to organise club rego with a log book and then I'll actually get my Calais and Torry out more often depending on which cruises are on.

The SMASA cruises seem to have a bit more maturity in my opinion. I’ve liked them in the past.

$270 for three years with 90 days a year driving. You can not go wrong if it’s just a weekender.

I also feel that the cops leave you alone a bit too now here in SA with club reg. as compared to quite a few years ago. 2008/2009 (some pretty bad times for defects).

I need to sort out what club to become a member of to then do the $270 for 3yr log book 90 days a year rego as that is perfect for me.

I have also noticed that cops are not focusing on the cruises as much unless the cruises bring attention to themselves by hooning. Everyone that has a mobile phone now (including elderly people) can easily call the cops and complain about hooning if it is occurring during a cruise that goes past them so ultimately mature driving keeps the cops away in most cases.

Pm me if you need help in securing reg for my club. It’s in northern suburbs and no participation is needed but it is nice to.

I’ve had letters in the post from the police just for the exhaust idling. As soon as you rub someone up the wrong way - they tend to win.

I know this is an old post but this car was mine. At that particular time I was out of work and couldn't afford new tyres on my mags so I painted up my spare 15inch stockies gloss black and put original metal chrome GMH centre caps on them as well as 15inch chrome rim trims. I kept it like that for about a year before putting the walky mags back on.

Thanks Calaist5, I'll keep that in mind when I finally get around to getting my car to a satisfactory street use level.

Maroon VL executive

Wheatsheaf Rd, MORPHETT VALE - Spotted 6 cylinder Executive VL sedan driving, Colour Maroon with casino style alloy wheels that are flat faced with roulette style small squares around the edges. Similar to Ford 12 slotters but not chrome. Very 80's looking mags and not my preferred choice. Some black simmons wheels with chrome edges would look awesome.
VL looked similar to the one in the picture and mags looked the same as the ones posted but were obviously 5 stud not 4 stud.

White VL Exec wagon

7.40am on Dyson Rd, CHRISTIE DOWNS - spotted white VL exec wagon with standard hubcaps stopped on the side of the road by traffic police. He didn't get a yellow canary and was having a larf with the coppa! Sounds like a good result for the VL driver
