    You can't beat the sound of a big V8, a guy down the street from me has a F150 SVT lighting, which looks awesome in pearlescent midnight blue and makes the entire estate shake as he rumbles past.

    Not that he rumbles past very often as it costs him a fortune to run :Smile:

    He's obviously a man of taste, his other car is a Civic Sport and his wife drives a HR-V.

    I like the look of the holden, though it does slightly remind me of a barried up P100

    The best bit is all that (discs and callipers) comes as standard.

    I was looking for a Monaro a couple of years back (the coupe version this car is based on) but I wanted a super charger version of the 6.0L V8 but they're a rare beast.

    The Maloo's are extremely rare I've still not seen one yet, not much call for them over here. They do look nice though, especially in that colour in the second photo. The Aussie's certainly know how to make a utility vehicle.

    I think the 1st photo has just help me decide which colour I'm getting my wheels changed to. :Smile:
