The last one is, definitely. The first three are Holdens.

I only looked at the first two. The last one is approx. 2001-current(?) FPV Falcon. I don't know year exactly because we don't have them here. Since the first few were of a Holden Commodore, I'll bet these are Australian models (and I think FPV is Australia-only).

Yeah last one is a BA Falcon (2002 -2005). I didn't look past the first two either. Don't know if it's an FPV model though....

Yeah TrueBrit that range of Holdens were very similar to the Opel.

Looks pretty stock to me... did FPV grunt up a base model looking one?

First 3 are a VX SS by the badging.

Hmm, the first 3 pictures are of a Pontiac GTO, not the American version of course. The American version only comes in two door models and has a different front end.

http://www.carnuttv.com/images/roadt...to_front_4.JPG

This is a car found in the United States.

Its a great car, 5.7 litres, V8 engine, rwd, 350 hp. 0-60 mph in 6 secs. definately makes a great police cruiser.

As for the last picture, i have no idea. In united States we have ford motor co, i beleive its the best selling car next to toyota, but i've never seen this model.

Don't tell me you actually joined a forum to type that drivel. While that car may look like a GTO and even have much in common with them, it is most assuredly a Vauxhall Commodore. How many GTO's do you think they have in New South Wales? When was the last time you saw a four-door GTO? Think, type, submit.

P.S. Thank you for confirming for the world that we have Ford Motor Company in the US. You may crawl back under your rock.

hey, well maybe people in other countries dont have ford cars. just trying to evaluate. and assuming you are in the us, how often do you see a 2 door toyota camry? not alot heh? from all the posts ive seen so far ive assumed that this is a english forum or whatever because of all the british or whatever kind of cars these are.

look at the third picture, its clearly a gto by the taillights. maybe its not made by pontiac, ok, maybe i was wrong, but it definately looks like a gto. (refer to the 2 door camry concept) ok it could be the way "ford motor company" runs mercury/lincoln

and i didnt open an account just to say this. i just happen to like gtos and i joined this forum. you read my introduction. i think theres a thing in the rules that says about bashing on the n00bs.

peace out for now.
