    Thanks Cuda, we've all made our choices for our own reasons, those I stated re Nitrate are just mine, I'm sure you have your own re Spitfire and yes, it will always stand out in a crowd:)

    A big thank you from me Martin, I decided to go Spitfire and this has just confirmed that I made the right choice for me.....and as you said, a hood decal for a bit of attitude..!!

    I know what you mean and has crossed my mind too, I don't think Holden would offer the power decal as an option if they thought it just looked wrong. It's one of those suck it and see type situations, will it make the front end too busy? It can always be peeled off if you don't like it. Another way of looking at it is black spoiler, black roof, black power decal to balance it over the car. It will make the car stand out more if that's your thing.

    I saw this on the weekend at a car show and immediately thought of the Spitfire MSE. Sleeper I think not..

    I hope the young kids of today will appreciate our cars like I/we appreciate Aussie & American muscle cars..

    No worries mate, any additional information we can share to confirm our colour choices can only be a good thing.

    Any chance of chucking the white one up Martin? That'll be the full set. I'm thinking of having them all printed and framed.

    Nice work Martin.

    Cuda, you are on a winner there !!!!

    I can't believe Holden haven't widely distributed those images.

    I'd like to think so but I have my doubts when I see what motivates kids today, seems its all about the latest tech/apps.

    Many thanks Martin, you have really lifted a weight off our minds ( for those of us (Like me) who couldn't decide
    Congrats to those going with Spitfire, I believe that will be the Hero colour, as Flame was with the first CV8 Monaro, plus it does look sensational in the flesh with dark tint windows .


    I wonder if Holden would make the renders available for Magnums and Directors, to assist those purchasers in the absence of a brochure

    Spitfire is the hero colour and probably the one that will be most keenly sought many years down the track by collectors. I have to pull the pin for tonight but will upload some more images tomorrow night. There's a separate Nitrate MSE thread that I'll update with the image.

    I have a document with all colours of every special edition, but it's 4mb.

    If someone knows how to upload that I can send it to your email and you can PM me and load it up here.

    I have signed a contract for an MSE and paid a deposit but are not sure if I have a GMON. What do I need to check ?

    Hi Martin, thanks mate, that's a fantastic idea. I've ordered SOAG for my director and was certain, but with each passing day I change my mind lol it's doing my head in
    I might just email Holden tomorrow and do the same
    Unless anyone else has already done it with Director?

    We're working on it, it's quite large... It's basically the same photos that have already been posted, but for every model (Motorsport, Magnum and Director) all in one PDF, but it's over 6mb.

    Yeah. I think we're in the golden era. In the future, cars will be faster, safer, lighter, blahdy, blah, blah. They will also have no soul, no character and no spirit. I think VS5.0 described them as appliances. Oversized mobility scooters.
    My kids love muscle cars. Even my 21yo daughter loves them. But then, they also love The Angels, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Cold Chisel and Aussie Crawl. I've come to the conclusion they're living vicariously through their parents. Haha, I mean LOL. Sadly, I think they're the minority in their age group. The next gen? Well, it'll be a rare minority, that care about "our" cars, our culture. Another part of the Aussie identity is disappearing before our eyes.
