See the New BA XR8

At the NSW Tickford meeting last night, a rep from Brad Garlick Ford said that they would have on display a BA XR8 at the Ford & Holden Show to be held at Olympic Park on August 31/September 1. Apparently Herrod's will also have some goodies on display.

Sounds like an excellent Father's Day present. For more info check out www.holdenfordshow.com

You wouldn't happen to know who it was would you? I know a few of the guys down there at Garlick's.

Nah sorry Sammy can't remember, but if you PM someone on the TOCNSW Committee they may be able to help.

Doubt it would be an XR8.. not being released until Jan2003. It may well be a base model XR6, as the turbo won't be out until late Oct/Nov.

I think u guys forget something, remember that just because the 8 might not be coming out until january, doesn't mean that they won't be showing it anytime soon. I don't think we will be waiting too much longer before the release of the 8.

Losing my license wasn't the smartest thing i have ever done, but now i can save my ass off and buy a V8!!
