Question Victorian XD XE XF Owners

Curious as to which Victorian FF members have an XD, XE or XF as their pride and joy? And why do you like that model so much?

Me, I have an XF with a 351 in it. I love it because, well, just because! I've put a lot of time and effort into the car, and, well, I just love it!

My baby XF is my pride and joy..... The reason i like this model soo much is that it has a bold strong road presence that i like. .....

Not only that but my XF has been in the family since 1987 bought brand new!

There's just something about my XE that turns me on...hehe I love the XD-XE-XF because they were the cars that wrestled GMH from No. 1

Not to mention that my car is extremely reliable and dead simple to work on.

start the club !!! then someone can buy the XE to get in !!!

Seriously.. I am not a fan of specific Model car clubs.. you end up getting people very interested in the social part of things that doesnt have an XD-XE (in this case) and ends up with some BS associate membership.
My unasked for opinion (as usual!!) is to start up a club that welcomes all ...and just happens to have a strong showing of a certain model...

You've got a point there, xa. I have one XF in my EA-ED club for the reason you mention (I don't have an 'associate membership' system though... too elitist).

However, I would seriously be glad if someone did start up an XD-XF club, because it would enable joint events, etc with greater efficiency. XD-to-ED cruise, anyone?

I love decent ones too ... but it's just that as JT said.. if not managed very carefully gets very elitist and all the fun drains out ( like some GT Falcon clubs ... NOT the geelong one !!)

I love my XF too. Even through all the troubles ive been with it, its held up real strong and i just love her. And shes so easy to make her look sexy, a simple lowering job and tints and your laughing.

And i've only had those troubles cause i thrash it.

I've had it for 4 years now, and the only time a breakdown was so serious that i couldn't drive it, was when i snapped the clutch cable(well actually it was the metal clamp thing thats inside the box, it just bent back so the cable just slipped off).

Apart from that, I've never had any "can't drive it" breakdowns.

Cheers
