Sweet. Now that is a great reto look.

Mellow Yello is/was better than Vault or Surge. Its still around, so that must mean something.

Eventhough I dont usually drink Coke products; I did like Mello Yello better than Mountain Dew. I wish they would bring it back here in the states.

They also import right hand drive Chevy Silverado trucks and Suburban SUVs, and make a "Holden Rodeo" locally, which, but for the badge and the wrong hand drive, is a Chevy Colorado.

If you remember the original Mad Max movie, all of the cars were 1960s and 70s Fords. All right hand drive and all made by Ford of Australia. In the original US release, they redubed the movie with US actors and cut the scenes driving scenes real tight, so you would not notice the right hand drive. A later version has the original sound track and driving scenes.

Yeah Mello Yello is all over Kentucky. And I agree that Mello Yello is a lot better than Mountain Dew. But Vault is better than both of them, but SURGE was better than all three of them combined!!! :D

I am aware of all of that. However... if the '73-'87 Chevy/GMC trucks where sold in that part of the world I would be suprised... And I know of a company who does the conversions... I doubt Holden converts the trucks.

Is it just me or does that Mello Yello look more yellow than the Mello Yello they have in the states? LOL kind of a tongue twister!! :D I love the retro look too. I think they should have that here too.
