Just think of how good would that be for the economy!

Best part of what you said right there! I'd happily sacrifice my shot at a new AU V8 to get into a brand spankers XY..... I'd even be happy with just a Yellow glow XY Falcon 500, 250 2V and 4 speed......
I dont care if some prius driving eco-hippy thinks its politically incorrect for me to drive a V8..... I'm paying for the fuel!
