    Nice truck,

    I find it interesting that the Chev badge is still on the grill (sorry, just re-read your info post and see that the Holden was replaced).

    Also interesting, that the steering column is the same as the NA trucks (shifter on the right and wiper arm on the left)

    Looks good for the age.
    Are the marker lights on the fenders an Austrailian requirement or an aftermarket add on.

    Its a turn signal, All Australian cars after 1990 must have a side indicator on either the front guard on the side mirror.

    Nice Ride! I spent a month in Australia a while back and could count the number of chevy trucks I saw on one hand. That's a pretty nice looking suburban. The dash is really strange though... nothing like the North American version.
