I always thought the Holden'* were sharp looking cars, I like what you've done!

Couple questions:
Can you go over what the upper intake manifold really is? Because from what I gather it appears to be similar to a large open air box.
Could you please enlighten me and tell us what "kw" transfers to in horsepower (hp)?
Can you post a picture of your dash cluster with all the gauges?

Again, very impressive car and its exciting to see how different, yet similar, our 3800'* are.

they sort of remind me of the caprices from the back.

Sounds like we got screwed, with a heavier FWD car with no V8 and no manual.

I think you are right, Sol.

I bet it has a lot in common with the F-body L36.
