perth vl crashed on news last night

Anyone see it? Is it anyones here?

Crashed head-on into the brick wall of a deli- looked like Mt Lawley somewhere.

Couldn't tell if it was a turbo but had momo stars and a big HDT sticker- looked quite nice.

Should say- looked like everyone would have got out ok- bruised ego

Not gloating- just interested.

from what i heard it was used for a ram raid, hence it was on purpose, and the idiots are to mental already to worry about being hurt :mrgreen:

i just laughed and said, fancy that, a VL being used for a ram raid, would have never thought...

Don't spread bull**** :evil: ........"from what I heard" just equates to I think I'll start a bull**** rumour to make it more interesting.......... Sorry to get angry, but this is the **** that can cause problems for people.

Yes I know the guy, and yes I know the full story........the owner of the car wasn't even in it and Surreal has mentioned, it was a Factory Formula, Scheel Interior, Momo's, full factory Formula kit. It will be rebuilt (in another shell), so no the Momo's aren't for sale !!!!

I saw it on the news with bugger all volume, whilst at work. Why would the news report another freakin VL being pranged unless it was used in a ram raid.

I mean every second VL is run into a shop for that reason. I hope i make the news if i smash my car. Will be worthwhile then...

Rebuild in another shell, wont be a factory formula anymore, will be a poxy replica.
:mrgreen:

I think they reported it due to it being a "high powered V8 Commodore Sedan" (to quote the news), shame it makes 30kW less than a standard VX V6 !!!! Typical media bull****, cause it's a V8 and a Commodore, you know what it's like, beat it up for the public, young drivers should only be in Micra's on gas and 60km/h speed limiters and so on. Owner of the vehicle had a spotless driving record (thouh he wasn't driving). Just your normal media sensationalism.

True of course, but how many Walky's do you know of that have been built on another shell, heaps !! It's still not illegal here in WA to transpose numbers over to another vehicle.......you can buy a statuatory write-off here in WA and rebuild it again (goes over pitts of course). So although you are correct, from a licensing point of view it will have all the right numbers.
