nearly converted somebody...
well i work as a mechanic in a holden dealership, as a lot of you would probably know, and today somebody took their AUI XR6 auto (non VCT) in for some work, i think because we had sold it and they had a used car warranty or something... anyway, it has about 130,000k on the clock, and they were complaining about it running rough, which it was, on occasion the idle waould falter a little.
anyway, nearly everyone there LOVES holdens, not surprising. the guy that had to work on it showed me the job card as he got it and said, something like 'hey, i have your favorite car here' im like, cool, that one goes hard (i have driven it before), and hes like, no it will be a slow peice of shit like all fords, so i say, take it for a drive and then tell me, remember its a 6 and you will be impressed! obviously he didnt believe me.
so he goes for a drive to try and get an idea what the rough running thing is, when he comes bace me and another holden lover go over to see what he thinks the problem is. we will call the driver FB (Fiat Boy, he has a fiat) and the other guy HL (holden lover). the convo went a little like this:
ME: so what do you think? like it?
FB:yeah it goes hard!!
FB: F*CK YEAH!
HL:is it comfy, like the ride and seats?
FB F*CK YEAH!
ME: so you like it?
FB F*CK YEAH!
HL: better than a commodore?
ME:I TOLD YOU SO!!!!
FB:yeah it still looks f*cked though
ME: well it depends on your taste, but now you know what im talking about when i say falcons are better than commodores!!!
FB: yeah i suppose....
so, my point is, if an auto series 1 AU XR6 with 130,000k on the odo can impress a dedicated holden lover (and mechanic to boot), what will a BA do?!?!?!?!? all we gotta do is get them to be open minded enough to take one for a drive!!!!
P.S. it wasnt all good for FB though, he had to replace the HT leads on a hot I6 after the test drive...hehe...
