Where are they now - VL's from VLCT.com.au??
 
I have been going through many different threads on VLCT.com.au during 2018 and wondered where are many of these VL's now. I spent a lot of painstaking time capturing pictures from all sorts of posts and intend on posting them on this thread to see if anyone knows where each particular car is now. Is it in a different state or territory, is it written off/ wrecked,is it painted another colour now, is it stored away as part of someones collection or has it been turned into a drag track or skid pig car? Please do not post actual addresses just the state or suburb or first name only of the current owner as we don't want undesirable people reading the thread to locate and steal our VL's. I guess this thread won't go far if I cant post any pictures. I'm using TinyPic to create a image for posting in forums like this. If successful you will see many pictures of many different VL's here and if you know the current situation with any particular VL then please place a comment relating to that particular picture.

I'm trying to work out how to separate each picture to allow anyone to only comment on 1 picture and not a whole heap of pictures that are linked like what is currently happening every time I'm posting at the moment.

AAAAHH! Still not working. I'll have to stop posting pictures until I get advice on how to post each picture separately. Sorry everyone. Stay tuned.

1/9/2018 - Update - Still waiting for a reply PM from a couple of CT Moderators as to how I can post photo's individually not all linked together on the same post. Hopefully then I will be able to continue this thread with lots of pictures of various models of VL Commodores :)

It looks like I can only post one picture a day otherwise it links all the pictures together in the same post. I guess I will have to do the slow process of only posting one car a day to this thread. Stay tuned!!

My car can be viewed in the Tuxedo black roll call thread.

My internet is playing up and the pictures have posted twice as the first time I got a message saying it didn't work so I tried again and unfortunately it has now posted a double up of the same thing :(

Here are some more, not every car is immaculate but that doesn't matter as they may still be going around in some shape or form or may have been rebuilt / resprayed / restored since the pictures were originally taken:

This was a Victorian car, is it still there??
I am quite partial to this car as well because it's a factory tuxedo black VLC just like mine but my car is a v8 which doesn't appeal to all of you but I appreciate all VL's just like many of you do.

Sean sold the car a few years ago now, it still gets around Adelaide from time to time. The owner is from the northern suburbs, I believe.
