Hey guys,

Thought you all Down Under may get a kick out of this. It turns out there is someone in the state importing Holden utes and wagons and converting them to LHD and reselling them here, and he does a pretty good job. A very select few over here get to enjoy the cars that you all enjoy. Let me know if I got any of my info wrong! :)

They have a 2003 for 33k and a 2010 for 85k. In other words too much. But they do it right. Some people get a rear ended go or g8 and put a ute rear on since it's easier to get the parts than a whole car from down under. They actually import the whole car and modify it to U.S. standards. We could have so many awesome cars here if it weren't for such laws.

People value things differently, I wouldn't necessarily its too much if they are selling them. Although theyre in a different league of desire, the older r33 and r34 skylines experience the same.

the builder brought a red g8/ute down to an austin car show
a few years back. it was done perfectly, and was absolutely
beautiful. they do great work. a bit pricey, but hey.. its
specialty.

I was in Austin when Randy brought that Ute to the V8 Supercar race. That's when I met him and decided I had to see that shop someday.
