My Brother's old XE

Found some photo's of my Brother's old XE and thought I would scan them in. This is the car that made me want an X series.




Sorry about the poor quality, these are the only photos I found.

He sold the car to my cousin a few years back which was a big mistake. My cousin wrote it off 2 weeks later going through two spoon drains at 140km/h+.
ripped just about everything out from underneath the car as it was pretty low. It also bent the chassis so the guts sat even lower. Then my cousins friend bought it off of him, replaced all the brokens bits but continued to drive it with the chassis still bent. He then sold it to some Aboriginals and I havn't seen it since. He bought it for $2000 cash and the engine had some nice work done to it including being blueprinted. Very nice car, and I still remember him getting burnouts in 3 gear, some nice dark black duellies!

Re: My Brother's old XE

yeah, when he bought it, it had a small blue book in the glove box containing what work had been done to it. it had everything, even the date and how many kms the car had done when the brake drums and calipers were painted. The guy he bought it off was the only owner of the vehicle, he bought it when they were released. It WAS the most looked after car I had ever seen.
