I have the Ute version of your GTO / our Monaro.

Got my Ute 12 months ago and love it.

I'm insanely jealous, I love the old El Caminos GM used to sell here, and the Ute SS.

I hope Chevrolet sells them here, and soon. :(

With the 25% US tariffs out of the way, some large hurdles remain for selling the Ute SS here as the Chevrolet SS.

It needs to be federalized by the US government, meaning crash testing and modification.

GM's plant in Australia is near its production capacity.

The UAW would like more North American assembled cars exported overseas before more cars are imported.

It's up to the General to figure out a way to make it happen, or we'll have to wait until the product life cycle is over in 2007.

I thought this might be an appropriate thread to post a photo of my Commodore. It's a 2000 model Executive (base model) optioned with the LS1 and M6. It has the SS rear wing and aftermarket 17" rims. 'Bout 380fwhp too.

Mick



what kind of mods?

QICMIK,
I see you're a banana-bender! Are you getting belted with the wind and rain at the moment?

The wind is so strong, all the nana's have blown straight! Nah, I'm in the western suburbs so the winds not too bad. The winds got up to 75-80kmh on the Gold Coast a few hours ago.

As long as we're off the subject of cars, can I ask why Aussies call the Brits "poms?" What is the origin of that word?

I keep watching the Jeremy Clarkson test of the Monaro where a voice in the dash (just a spoof) calls him a "hopeless pom" for turning the traction control on... funny.
