Thumbs up 1400km Trip to Perth

Will we made it to Perth from down town Pannawonica in 13hr just on 1460km.
This V8 is just great sit's on 130km all day with a avg fuel used is 10.5lit per 100km.
Fuel could have been better but with wife three kid's and a boot full of crap cramed in and not the mention clowning around with a new four pot Camry for an hour.
The accerultion in 4th gear when over taken at 100kph has to be felt to believe,with what seem's only a flew seconds and she doing 160kph with the speed warning peeping away.
If i lived in the city i would really think about the auto box as changing gears in the city is given me the shits.
Time to go shoping
See Yaa

I still miss my EX
but my aim is getting better

i always had manuals untill my latest car.
i live 200km from perth but after a few trips to the supercars and the odd weekend in perth i got really sick off the manual
now i got auto and cruise much more relaxing.
