when i came to oz in 1981, i remember seeing a couple of XD's and thinking they were granadas. if you ever get the chance, watch some old 'professionals' episodes. lots of granadas, capris and the odd rs2000.
the previous granny was similar to the xc, not surprisingly. the granny was kept on until the early 90's and was replaced by the scorpio. and if you thought the taurus was ugly, go looking for pics of the scorpio. but i warn you...they are not pretty. keep animals and small kiddies out of the room.
You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
