Looks tough, Is it true Andy from Pro and Rodney from Howell built the whole car??? Surely the quickest VL in the state... Maybe yours PSI806 might get it

It was featured in Street Commodores a fair while back. Makes a fair bit more power than mine, only thing holding the quick times back is the manual.
