Re: Back into the XR6
Yeap i have withdraws not driving mine for 1 week. On the weekends i clean the XR and after that i have to get out and drive it. It's true what they say, you don't know what you have until you don't have it.
Thats something i've noticed with the regular small-medium Japanese sedans, somehow despite they are so reliable and well built and do everything right, it doesn't seem to be the same as an XR Falcon.
I have no doubt that any late model XR's are destined as classics as time goes by. From the first EB S XR6/8 rightup to the BA XR they have represented good value and gave drivers that special something for a reasonable price.
