G'day Doug ,, oh , and Dusty ,,
I believe the full VE will be on the track this year , not just the body kit ,, having just bought a VE SV6 (rig pic) , we here in this household hope the tide has changed ,, if they can keep the electronics in control they will be a hard car to beat ,, here's to hoping !!

All the best ,, Neil ..

Thanks Vince B ,, as they say ,, when only the best will do ,, tax man said we made too much money on paper ,, just wish he'd show me where it is ,, anyway , he said better go and buy something ,, mmmm , a new car I thinks to myself ,, Margie said , I thought you'd just but a small runabout , HA , not likely ,, the first time I saw a photo of the VE I said ,, I WANT ONE ,, have to say ,, no regrets ,, fantastic car to drive ,, well ,, when i get a chance !!

As for the Paj ,, had it for 6 years , done everything we have asked of it , has been a very reliable unit ,, wont be parting with it for a long while yet ..

All the best ,, Neil ..

OK Doug
But it AIN'T Holden front end (but based on the Ford setup- upper/lower control arms, not McPherson strut)
It AIN'T a Holden (or any GM) engine configuration (based on Ford block)
It AIN'T a Holden rear diff/axle setup (based on Ford setup)
It AIN'T a Holden gearbox...(it's a Hollinger, based on European Ford)
And even the VE body shell- isn't a VE bodyshell. It had to be shortened severely to fit the Project Blueprint wheelbase- on the VZ wheel base, for the 'common floor pan' also based on Ford design.
Cheers
