'The Green Machine' VH Commodore 253 stroked to a 310 with Chev internals
The Green Machine - for shits and giggles my brother and I built a 310
stroker from a 253 Holden V8 that was already matching to this VH. Bare
block rebuild with chev internals and top of the range other internal
goodies.... rather expensive "shits and giggles" and believe me, I wasn't
giggling afterwards to finish it off. But DAMN it has some POWER! It make
that VH look like its about 200kg and not the 1.4 tonne it should be. We do
have other video of it elsewhere, but I am stll looking for it....
Please Note - Ignore the running commentary of assisting someone to park
the car, who ignores everything you say...or partly he can't hear anything
I am saying either...lol

Second track meet - minor tuning mods, big ignition breakdown at top of
track (around 6500rpm), brakes couldn't hold the car on the line due to
lack of vacuum
Third Meet - New Brakes, upgraded to MSD ProBillet, new plugs & leads, new
slicks and fresh tune...unfortunately time sign wasn't working but ran a PB
of 11.14 which was the quickest the car ran before the new work was done

Another milestone car for Holden with the VH Commodore...
The Commodore was Holden's answer to the Europeans in the early 1980s with
their ahead of the time trip computer and cruise control that saw Holden
further advance their already iconic sedan.
Still remembered for its shadow-tone paint option, the VH Commodore in the
early 80s was on the cutting edge of technology and presented a truly
aspirational Holden for family-car buyers
