. . . . ROFLMAO . . . YEAH , delivery to Dealer is one thing but delivery to me could be substantially different

If there is a colour match issue HSV will deny its their problem and blame Elisabeth . . . and insist that Holden repaint the car to match their body kit colour - what a mess this could be . . . .

I think we best list the delivery date as the date scheduled by Clayton to be fair . . .

I'm placing a two car vote both in Nitrate.

I'm going with an R8 Maloo in manual eta 16/10/2013.
I think the R8 and not the SV pack due to the fact you do your own mods and do them Well......

The second car I'm feeling like it could be a Senator. As far as delivery goes I was thinking it would be rather quick however with the way the order has been placed I'm gonna go with 03/01/2014.

Strick
06-09-2013, 04:33 PM
Silver GTS with delivery at 05 October.

Until i read the above i would of guessed the build number of 005 too however this might not be the case this time!!

Either way congrats to all those that have ordered a new GTS, its fantastic that the GTS is finally a stand out in the model line again and i think you will all be happy no matter what the performance figures or price or hassle to get one!

My thoughts are that Sniper has already done enough mods on the old technology LS3.... Why would he go over old ground again? I'm tippin the GTS as for a man of his statue & Wealth why would he do anything less? He'll do the GTS & then no doubt update to even newer technology when Series 2 comes along... Quite simple really.

The Model and Colour need to be exact, the date is whoever is closest. If there is more than one who get it correct it should then be who posted first. I think that's fair...

. . . as the time for the book to close approaches, I am thinking of adding a few tips that will "possibly" enable some punters to close the "window" of delivery up slightly and give a second crack for all . . . Although someone is already pretty damn close

. . . but as this is Nitrates initiative, I will be chatting to him on the phone with any secondary initiatives/suggestions first . . .

I think that if "someone is already pretty damn close" with their good guess, then they might not win if changed to multiple guesses (especially if you give clues). I recon its fairer to leave it as it is! :-)

Voting has now been closed and the winner will be announced on Tuesday the 17th September 2013.

The car Sniper has on order is a 'GTS', so for those of you who picked this, well done!

Now for the twist, as the delivery date and ultimately the winner will not be advised until Tuesday there is now a second chance vote for those who had previously voted for the other models.

Sniper has generously donated $150.00 towards this second chance vote and will be for 'HSV Gear of your choice' to that value. So for those of you who didn't vote for a GTS you now have the chance to nominate a colour and delivery date and still be in the running in the second chance vote.

Good luck, both winners will be announced this coming Tuesday.

Congrats bosscocky and RedHotMike! Well done! Damn you... :)
When I asked Sniper if he will still get a GTS (some time ago), he did say he might get himself a Christmas pressy.... Damn, I thought it would be early or late-ish.....I obviously went for the early, but I knew I should have picked a date in December.
Hey Sniper, can you order another HSV now.....so we can play it again? ;) .... Nargh, only joking. Was fun though!!!
Thanks to all who put in time, money and effort! and really, well done bosscocky and RedHotMike!

Congratulations on your purchase Sniper, another one to add to the garage....

Bet this will be your best one yet, that's a big call I know!

Thanks for allowing us to run this as well, we would have run it anyway, but may have stumbled on getting the date :) We could have always sent uncle knuckles to look for you though.... :o

Thanks Nitrate...never won much in my 63 years so much appreciated...pretty easy really... I remember Sniper saying something about having a couple of weeks before Xmas to do things to the car..so I said the 6th but changed to the 4th when he said put 2 and 2 together. He gets it on the 3rd so only out by 1 day. Again thanks.

Well done young fella . . .

It's been interesting to watch as there was one very big indicates - the fact that I didn't order one early so it was always going to be a December car and I would be surprised if its in the dealer by thr first week but I really don't care . . . when it arrives it arrives . . .

Cheers to Ben (Nitrate) for putting the book together and it's been my absolute pleasure to have a couple of chats with you mate . . . a true gentleman . . .

To those that picked Maloo . . . well it's still on my radar!! . . . . I am going to look at what's around in January and see if there is a combo that suits then make an offer . . . they will be at their cheapest at that time . . .

Hmmm tell me about it, bosscocky's order was shipped to the bill to address and I have just returned home from being away for a couple of days. And guess what, I have a card here to collect it from the post office. Will now need to get this to him, thanks HSV :mad:

RedHotMikes hasn't even left HSV yet and now they are saying they haven't got one of the items in stock. It's been a nightmare....

But hey we will get through it :)

I think you all need to know that HSV didn't deliver on time and I cancelled about. Week later . . . sadly he dealer still has the car

After visiting Ed in December I've decided the quality doesn't quite cut it (quality wise) in 2013/14 so I'll do something else . . although there is a chance that HSV will do some interesting LE variants in 2015 . . . I'll see how I feel then . . .

I think my new car will have 2 doors tho!!! . . . .

Tuesday the 17th . . . I was well past the bullshit by then . . . HSV were pumping out unsold GTS's by the truckload and farking around with the real buyers and they damn well knew it . . . I made a stand and in a way I'm happy and disappointed at the same time - but in the end I am sick to death of the mentality a Clayton . . and the best way I could protest was to walk the deal

. . . and the dealer still has the car unsold . . . I've told them that ill take it for $89 Driveaway . . . watch this space . . . Lol
