Image[That is what I saw except it was a bit more simple looking (without the trinkets or 'BLING' wheels)Your specimen appears to be raised?Or is it just the wheels that make it look taller?There is also some other cusom mods here.I hope these vehicles become more popular and available I might hold off on that Suzuki project a while yet. /QUOTE]

hahahaha

i love it :D yet another person thinking these are a new vehicle :D - they are a concept vehicle that went into a 5000 run production

;) they are 10 years old, and are built completely (exception of body panels) of left-over stock from the jackaroo's, frontera's and rodeos

extremely capable offroaders and racers

they were released for $40,000, they still sell for upwards of $25,000

they were only a limited production line, if they were holden badged, they would have been "HSV"
5000 were made for the global market - 3000 for america (marketed for the southern states), 1500 for japan, 500 for the rest of the world, they were one of those things that was special request only, not in any brochure here

the major problem with them is that each body panel is worth over $2000 - has to be made in japan on the old moulds and shipped over - insurance is rather expensive

Ah yes the Vericross
This one look quite nice with the suspension lift, bigger tyres, flares and rock sliders.
I've seen 2 in QLD and I'm sure there are a few more in NZ.

Due to the newer import regulations (96-98) NO more jap 4x4 imports like the MUs, troopers or vericross's (probably surfs too) are allowed into OZ.

Different story in NZ though, but as mentioned they are 10 plus years old and limited.
