Far as I know the Metro area has the VE commodores.

For the Country/Regional area I would say NO as it 2011 and lot of them would of been changed over to the VE commodores. And some of the VE Commodores have been changed to either the Ford FG Falcon divvy van or the Toyota Hilux Varley Pod.

I think that the last one to be replaced in the metro area was the Station Wagon at Subiaco Station. God that was around for quite awhile and was showing its age!

The oldest car I've seen was from 2008 with most being from 2010 unless it's a car that's hardly used

Highly doubt Statesman's would be general Police vehicles, maybe they are being delivered for government personnel transports?

Can't the delegates use TAXI's or there are a few companies that can provide a service?

I guess that would involve security background checks for the companies and the drivers. Given the world we now live in and the seriously important people attending CHOGM they probably prefer to play things safe.

I thought they were now all retired [VZ's] and have moved to Ute's. That's the information I have received?
