Ever since they were released Iíve always wanted a Hothouse green VY. I was only nine at the time, but I grew up with and developed my love of Holden/HSV because of my parents, who had a VR Senator, VX GTS and VE SS-V over the years.

I came across my immaculate VY Clubsport R8 (in Hothouse green, of course) with less than 25,000km on the clock four years ago.

And as luck would have it, I happened to be in the right place at the right time.

I live in Alice Springs and the car was advertised in Mackay, but turned out to be in Toowoomba the day before I was heading through on holidays. I stopped to check it out and knew I had to buy it.

I can happily say I have my dream car in the best condition and spec I could.
