Fawk.... But they didnt get the Excel thankfully
Two high-performance Toranas have been stolen overnight from a property on the Gold Coast hinterland.
The vehicles - an orange XU1 and a blue and grey XU2 - went missing from a private home at Pacific Pines about 10.30pm.
The 5-litre Holdens are both capable of a top speed of more than 250 km/h.

Holden introduced the car in a bid to win back the Bathurst 500 race from Ford's Alan Moffatt.
In peak condition, the XU2 can accelerate to 160 km/h and break to a stop in 20 seconds.
Police say the thieves failed in their attempt to steal a Hyundai Excel before breaking into a back door of the house and stealing electrical equipment, entertainment systems and jewellery.
They then took the Toranas after finding the keys. The deep blue and grey Torana has a XU2 number plate.
