biggrin BA XT vs VX Exec

This is a true story. A good friend of mine who also happens to be a senior sales person in the ford camp had an XT sedan in congo green for the weekend. He lives essendon sought a way. He pulled up at a set of lights and along came a v6 exec. The guy in the commodore was having a good ganda and then gave his car a bit of a rev. (almost the equvalent of begging to be shot). Any way my mate gave it to the XT and gave the VX owner a pretty distant glimpse of a BA's rear end. When he pulled up at the next set of lights, the VX owner asked if it was a V8 and my friend said. "Nah mate, just a stock six". The Commi driver said "Shit" and caned the crap out of his car as my friend drove off slowly. I have worked with him for 5 years and let me tell you that the story sounds 10 times as funny coming from him. XT is the new found Hero of the Fleet.

I dont know about street dragging (best left on the track), however the the XT is one very fine, fast car. Build quality like I have never seen on a Factory Falcon. I actually think she looks great in just plain White..lowered...18"....mmm

How do you get time to have a conversation about if it's a V8 or IL6 while sitting at the traffic lights and never getting out of the car?

I am sure the BA will beat a Stock VY anyway.

Easy. You roll down the window (Push the down button in the case of the BA) and talk to each other at the lights. Done that a few times when I left a few Commy's for dead. They cant believe I drive a stock EA 5 Speed :)
