Old School Power

Just imagine driving a Skyline R33 Gt on the straights of Adelaide (Main North Road), I would think I was the king of the road when I was cruising with the turbo combustion sound every time I change gear, the sound of power. I will always remember the time on a traffic light when this old junk of a car was right behind me. I did not know what car was it until it smoked me in matters of seconds, the Holden Commodore.

I knew Holden Commodore was a powerful car but then the sound and the experience of that car just gives me the chills. The car that smoked me was a definitely a V8 engine and after searching the web a few months back I can confirm that it’s a Holden VK Commodore 5.0 L. There is only one V8 model that is available then and I was told by my friend who owns a Holden Commodore 3.3 L that the V8 was a killer. I did manage to drive his Holden and I find it scary on the corners as the power of the car is too great for me to handle but on the straights, it’s pretty stable with its wide chassis.

Well when you are in Australia and have the money to play around get yourself a Holden Commodore (the old ones are pretty cheap) and try it on Main North Road in Adelaide and be the king of speeding tickets!

About the Author

When I was a little younger, I never had the interest in cars at all. Somehow it picked it up when I was in high school and oh yeah did I mention my dad and brother loves cars as well? I am more of a Japanese Car lover then any other car but don’t get me wrong I like the rest as well. Let’s just say that Jap cars are the first on my list. Drifting, racing circuits and rallying, these are the thing that I love to do but I can’t! Well let’s just say I don’t have the skills for these kind of things. So the only thing I do is occasionally drive fast on the road when I am provoked by a much slower car or in par. "All you need to see is my tail light" turboturtle
