First Ride in A GTP

I kno this is a double post but ive gotta tell as many ppl as possible... especially my fellow E-series members!!

Well today was one hell ova day!!!... it seems so sureal!!! As the title says i had my first ever ride in one of the new GT's thanks to my mate John, (GTP 320).

As some of you will know John's GTP is a awesome example of the new BA GT's and what can i say??? where do i start?!! everything about the car was awesome... the seats, sat nav, sunroof... evrythin!!! and the power!!! sheesh... im still recovering lol , was really mind blowing compared to the 'ol xr6!!! And the note from the BOSS... Words cant describe...!!! Best V8 rumble ive heard!!! Most boss owners will know this!!!

John then took me down to meet Cam, (GTP 200) as i watched on as they shot scenes of Cam's upcoming GT movie!!! Its going to be bloody awesome... some really nice cars there today!!!

I could go on forever about today, but i wont!!! But thanks again to John and Cam for everything today, really was a great experience!!! Thanks heaps John!!! Youre a champ!!!

Now all i gotta do is figure out a way to save for a GTP when i turn 21 and get off my P's !!! :s6:

Cheers, Shannon

Re: First Ride in A GTP

Ohh man I gotta get this movie and by just looking at gtp's I know that one of those would change my life. If I was blessed for a ride in one, even an xr8!
