    I saw it last week in sunlight and it looks completely different to the indoors shot. If that car had either two more cylinders or a manual, I seriously think it would have been in my driveway today. It was sitting on 20's similar to that of the VF show car.

    Cylinders and shifter are perfect for me so I would only have to convince the treasurer. Unfortunately she and my daughter were unimpressed with the colour.

    I'm still holding out hope The concept cars Kandy Fantale will make an appearance. From what the guy at the dealer was saying the regular Fantale isn't as popular as hoped they have only sold a handful in that colour.
    Orange Rock sounds like a colour that might suit and is close I guess to the Bronzed Aussie maybe that would go on VF?

    Yes!!!! Hothouse was great. One of my favourite Commodore shots was of a Hothouse SS.



    I've only seen a couple VFs in Fantale. I'm not totally surprised it's not popular as it's near the same orange as our yellow cabs in Brisbane.

    I'm wondering if this was a moment of inspiration...?

    There's another shot of it on the LS1.com.au website by user super coach. I'm wondering if this is to fill the spot left in Holden's colour chart after Alchemy was deleted?

    I like it, but wouldn't buy it. My son really liked that colour on the VYs so maybe a generational thing.

    None of the photos make this color look as awesome as Poison Ivy Metallic. I would assume that the 2015 models aren't being built yet, but this will be on the order sheet? I hope Regal Peacock Green will still be offered. If I were to pick a color to paint some classic muscle car, I'd like the PIM. But the Stingray's Lime Rock Green is pretty damn hot too. And it would be easier to order for me.
