Woa..!! that`s good news.. There was a Commodore in malabe ages ago, I’m pretty sure it was a VT series (1997–2000). As I could remember it was some dark color not silver.

Any idea what series It might be?

VX?

Now I'm drooling....

If you guys have any info about the Commodore, please post. Would love to see if its an HSV Commodore. If its just a commodore... its not too special because the same car is made by Daewoo and Opel with their own brandings. Still an awesome ride though.

The only Holden I've seen on a road in Sri Lanka in the past 5 years is a 1972 Holden UTE with a 40-Sri plate. Not really in a good condition since its been used as a workhorse. I seriously doubt if it still has the Holden engine in it.

Does it look like this?

VX and VZ are past models. New one is the VF Commodore.

Prior to 2009, there was VE Commodore, which looked like this:

Great if it`s a VF :rolleyes: , I questioned VX or VZ thinking that it might have been imported sometime back. Hope it`s V8 so that SL roads will hear the thumping roar. Doubt HSV (clubsport or R8) though, would someone be crazy enough to dump way over 10 mil on relatively unknown brand? At least an SV8 perhaps. :rolleyes:

If I'm not mistaken, the rear of VE and VF Commodores look nearly the same. The difference was in the front and inside (what they call the Holden IQ System, and dualmode climate control, electronic stability control and so on).

That's a 2009 VE Omega (Omega is the basic trim level of the Commodore with ONLY 3.0litre V6 :)). Commodore comes with a dozen or so trim levels. Highest being the SSV with the 6.0 litre V8 Engine :).

Poor 'ol Commodore is losing its Aussie identity these days on the production line. About 55% of the car comes from Oz. The rest imported including things like boot lid pressings and windscreens and rubber mouldings and some lighting parts from China. Oh well, we can always buy a Great Wall suv when things get desperate :angry: .

The core of the car (chassis and all mechanical components) is still made in James Holden's hometown - Adelaide (I've actually been to their assembly in Elizabeth). U r right about the peripheral components such as lights and beadings coming from China. This is the case with most of the cars anyway. It actually creates supply chain efficiency and allows to keep the prices in check. However, the real problem is the rising Aussie dollar which makes it very tempting for GM to import more parts from abroad.
