Omg, sorry to hear but me too. My blue car was rear ended late last year too. I had another right rear quarter put in. Thank god for insurance.

Have fun this weekend.

wow....haven't been on this site in ages, but thought I'd drop in.

remember good videos of a guy with a green wagon that used to crush coke cans with his airbag system and the guy (cant remember his name) that had OMY-11S which was meant to be OMY-08S which never happened.

Member since 2002. Still come here for an occasional look.

Still into VL's. Currently have 3 still road registered, 2 parts cars, and a Wagon im still deciding weather to restore or not.

I remember when these forums were very active. Great times. Hope it stays alive into the future and does not die like the Street Commodores forums. A lot of information, handy tech advice, and history was lost when it went.

Once you start off with VLs, the interest in them never dies.

Here with bells on!!!

I'm a new member as of late last year and have only recently made some posts in the last few months. I'm not on FaceBook as I have thought it ruins a lot of things (it does have good points) but not for me. I wish I searched this site years ago as it is full of excellent information and fantastic cars. I have had several earlier model commodores including an original VB SLE 308-with yella terra heads and with t400 auto with duco painted in a factory metallic gunmetal blue/grey colour. I also had a white 6cyl VK Calais lowered with polished VH SLE rims. My favourite Commodores were VL's so I sold all my other Commo's and saved for a VL and my first VL was a factory tuxedo black VL V8 Calais that I still have to this day. I have had several other VL's during that time - 1x Silver VL exec with colour coded bumpers and black around windows and tail lights and blue interior and 1x red VL exec with full replica calais silver painted on lower sections and black painted around windows and tail lights and with a beige interior. Before I got my learners permit (back in the late 1980's) I had a 2door LC torana as my first car and have had many torrys since then including several LJ's and 2x LX Hatchbacks - one 6cyl with bright metallic blue duco and centrline style wheels and other was v8 with full white colour coded body/bumpers in the SS look with bumper over riders and a set of dragway indy mags. To this day I still have a torry - LJ 2door yellow and black 6cyl GTR replica. It would be fair to say more people love the black VL calais than the torana but I'm not selling either of them. Long live the VL's and Calaisturbo.com.au

---------- Post added 17-07-18 at 21:18 ----------

Here are just a few of the cars I've had






---------- Post added 17-07-18 at 21:43 ----------

I still have the Yellow Torana to this day



Last edited by TuxedoCal; 23-07-18 at 20:12. Reason: VK calais had wrong wheels listed so changed it to VH SLE rims.

Here lads!
Only took me 3 attempts at logging in.
Can’t remember how long I’ve been a member, but have been since way back when the old forums were up, I was probably 17, so 18 years at a guess.
Still jump on here a few times a year.
Haven’t had a decent car since the ss, wife, kids and a house stopped the toys for a bit.
I’ll have another Calais very soon though.

Has Jet-6 checked in yet?

**** boys, back in the day as you have said there would be a hundred new threads a day so much banter and shade being thrown, great times.

Still have all the CT merchandise also.

Hi SIK304, Great to hear that you still visit the site. Also great that you still have your Calais since 2004. I've had my tuxedo VLC sedan since 1997 but only became a member of this site late last year. Is there a thread that I could see your Calais on. PM me if you find a thread with a picture of your car, I'd like to see it

Here!
Still checking in / lurking around now and then...

Currently trying to work out if I'm going to sell or keep my beloved - but these rust repair / full respray quotes are killing me

Definitely great having this forum still running as a resource / info database on VLCT's.

PS - Can any of you Melb guys fill me in on what happened to Bresciani racing? Are John / Danny still around or working on VLT's ?

cheers
