Re: we got our selves another

Our family did about 6 years ago, dad had a VS SS commy fully spec up, neways the seat kept giving him a sore back, we went back to buy a Berlina VS II at the time, and also went and gave a Fairmont a drive, he liked the Fairmont alot more but wasnt real impressed with the interior/exterior looks, so he ended up going for an EL Fairmont Ghia with full leather!! After that we've never had anohter Holden, and dont want one!

A work colleague who I thought was an incurable Holden boy is about to take delivery of a Blood Orange XR6T with tint, premium sound and Herrod suspension.

Re: we got our selves another

i know a guy whos brother was a holden nut- had a 'fully sick VN' etc etc etc, so naturally he was a holden boy.

he lived with us for a year - went to the tafe thats really close to us - and we argued nearly every day about ford Vs holden, how his brothers car would kick my ass etc, now i find out (a year later) that he has bought an AU, of all things!!!! and he loves it! he has already put 18s on it and a proper exhaust, bought heaps of ford clothes and stuff....he is now totally the other way!!!

all my enthusiasm must have rubbed off!!

Re: we got our selves another

On of my bosses, who was a fanatical "Ricer", Full Sick Lancer, came to work one day and said: Traded the Lancer in and picking up my new car on monday. Great i said, as one does, what are you getting??

Black BA XR8. Could have knocked me over with a feather. Had always been giving him heaps about getting a "Real" car. Don't know if i had anything to do with it and don't care. At least he got something worth bragging about. Hehehe
