    Don't think this is correct. Sportscat is HSV, Camaro & Silverado are Chevrolet. The big bow tie on rear makes it pretty clear as to who the manufacturer is...

    Not talking about the manufacturer, HSV never was the "manufacturer".
    They were the "modifier" or whatever you want to call them, same as they were for Holden, and they are "plated" just as they were for Holden.

    My car is called an HSV GTS, your car is called an HSV GTSR, the big yank tank is called a Chevrolet Silverado. Pretty clear cut to me

    No problem there, and just like the VXR, it's plated by HSV & sold through the Holden Dealer network.

    Difference here is the VXR was a Holden/HSV rebranded and sold in a different market. The Chevrolet Silverado is a Chevrolet Silverado being sold in AU/NZ as a Chevrolet Silverado. Itís called a Chevrolet Silverado everywhere on the planned, so why try to call it an HSV?

    NZ EVLHSV is right, the Sportscat is a HSV due to it also being sold here as a Holden Colorado in standard spec, before going to HSV for their modifications.

    The biggest give away that Camaro and Silverado aren't HSV's is that you can't buy a Holden Camaro or Holden Silverado.

    If it was, or is sold as a Holden and then HSV modify it, then that is a proper HSV.

    The Camaro and Silverado never had a Holden badge on them at any stage.
    The cars were never sold as Holdens, so they can't be a Holden Special Vehicle.

    They can be a CSV - Chevrolet Special Vehicles.

    However in this case they are no more special than the model being sold in rest of the world, so just call them what they are, the Chevrolet Camaro and the Chevrolet Silverado. I canít understand why anyone would think the HSV name has anything to do with it

    And why would any HSV club want Chevrolet badged cars in it???

    Holden actually allowed HSV to do this. This is their new niche vehicle.
    Get used to it!

    Sportscat by HSV
    Camaro by HSV
    Silverardo by HSV

    I have no problem with HSV marketing their new cars, just donít call the Chevrolet models HSVís. Hell even HSV call them Chevroletís on their website!

    SportsCat whereís the HSV badge and is one of the cars. The other two have a bow tie on them and theyíre Chevroletís
