Lost my Barra virginity this morning

I turned up to work this morning, only to see a brand new XT sitting at the roller door, blue in colour.
It was a salesman from Bob Binks surside ford. They only have one on the premises.
They brought it in for us to go over, and as he saw me cruise in with my XR, he had little hesitation in handing me the keys.

People at work were asking him all these questions, he had little idea, I was answering everything for him (most amusing)

But my pleasure came with the drive, absolute pleasure, so smooth, and the tip tronic gearshifter is fun, I could'nt really give it too much stick.. Grrrr, but for an XT, makes me think what the XR is going to be like.

Certainly my highlight for the week.


Gunmetel Grey EL XR8.
Manual, 17" Rims, Full Bodykit.
My Dream furfiled for the moment.
