The electronic one?

My mate had a VK Calais (6 cyl) with that dash. Sadly the car got pinched and written off.

I always assumed the '80's Elizabeth electronics would have had reliability issues by now. Are they still about and working?
The electric is cool but I honestly just like the regular one with the square gauges. Super 80s looking. No other models had square ones to my knowledge.

Think some 60s and 70s models had square/rectangle ones and the HQ has round ones but on a square box that is the same layout as the VK.

The HJ from memory had the big rectangular speedo. I had a HZ (253, 4sp) and it had a round speedo in a square bezel. Probably the exact same instrument that ended up in the VB and UC.

I reckon one of the previous body shape had one model with the big rectangular speedo too. I want to say the HK?

Had an 8, had a few 8s
But times change, now I drive a turbo 6
Pure comfort and its faster
Yep me too. Had 3 V8's. 1 auto and 2 manuals. I love V8's but they're just not practical for city use. I now drive a turbo 4 which is more like a mobile loungeroom and I don't miss the V8's at all.

G strings are weird because some people think they are really uncomfortable yet others swear by them. I even used to work with some guys that religously wore them

John Howard interevened at a domestic violence incident today and helped a young girl apparently.

Scomo has now come out and said hes a hero and everyone who sees an incident like this should help out.

I reckon its prettt irresponsible to tell the general public to dive in and risk their lives over other peoples problems.

Id hate to get stabbed or beaten over something nothing to do with me.

This confused me as the story says the woman had breached the VRO and the guy was in hospital

I felt it was the other way round and that it was the woman inflicting the DV

All up I must confess I struggled trying to work out what actually went down

Yeah the way they wrote it is always angled at the bloke being in the wrong
