    VP Commodore Tribute

    I didn't realise the love for the vp Commys on here, so I thought I had better get on the new hotness

    Originally bought new by MIL, FIL drove for a while and got given to my NUMBNUT BIL (44). MIL and FIL kept it well maintained. I think they also paid for regular services while BIL drove it

    Was in fairly good condition until BIL got possession of it. He drove it until it got bogged in the paddock and ran out of petrol. During his ownership he has lightly punted people front and back, gouged quarter panel and forgot to put bonnet down properly (secondary safety latch bent due to earlier incident) which resulted in windscreen and guards getting damaged. Bonnet was replaced

    As I got it
    VP Vacationer, v6 manual

    It cost me a box of beer and I had to unbog it and drive it home. It had 1 days rego left and drove perfectly. Also spun the wheel quite well

    As a fitting end to this fine Aussie icon i stripped the carpets and un needed parts in the interior and boot. Filled 2 wheelie bins with BIL's shit. He may have lived in it for a while

    A mate has 400 acres or so and was in the process of building a track

                Obviously the police stickers and lights were removed immediately after I realised that I could be charged with impersonating police or some other crap

                The car hooks up and steers very well on the dirt. The other race cars out there (falcon, awd subaru, navara and rodeo ) may now be at least getting rally tyres. The commy flogs all of them at the moment

                .A jump or 2 may be being built with a bobcat next time we are out there.

                I will get vids next time

                  I loved every second of this thread until here. Still a big fan though.

                    You're allowed to have all the cop shit on car just when transporting they want car cover...however if it's parked on street/driveway they'll tell you to take sirens off.

                    Not sure if swedes or patrol cops liked vn replica cop car I had sitting in driveway years ago.

                    Lots of people tried to buy it then chickened out at last moment so parted it out instead.
