VL Turbo

Rare boosted fam­ily wagon

Motor (Australia) - - GREATEST HITS - – SN

Welly S, 37

“I’VE had the car for four years. It’s a 1988 VL Calais Turbo wagon, one of 50 I be­lieve. All my fam­ily mem­bers had it when I was young, I re­mem­ber fall­ing asleep in the back seat. I’ve al­ways wanted a VL and I’ve got a real soft spot for wag­ons; out of seven cars we’ve got, five of them are wag­ons. I bought this with the in­ten­tion of do­ing it up, then all my mates said ‘don’t touch it’. My god­fa­ther was a pro­duc­tion su­per­vi­sor at Holden and still had a few parts at home, so he gave me a bit of new-old stock. I’ve only seen two that are orig­i­nal, a lot of peo­ple say ‘it’s a mock-up’.”
