Yeah, I've seen pictures of them several times. They look fine. Something on this one just doesn't look right...I think it'* the grill and/or head lights...not sure. That'* granted I've only ever seen the Lumina SS, which is an awesome car.

Essentially, but it does look a bit different..






The rear door is shaped differently. The Caprice is more like the Impala, while the Lumina is more like the G8



Actually, looking at that, the Lumina appears to be on the same platform as the G8. I've never seen a Lumina SS, so I'm not sure how its size compares to the Caprice and G8

Yes the Lumina is on the same platform as the G8...they all share the same underpinnings of a Holden Commodore...the Lumina is more for the Middle Eastern market...they are essential all 3, the same cars.

I don't think so, that would be a Vauxhall VRX8...The SS was also sold in Africa too, but mainly the Middle East.
