Re: My NEW CAR

Thanks Guys
its an auto (spewin another dog box) just ticked over 190k its got more shove of the line than the SVO probably the 3.45's, but from about 60 the old EA leaves the XR6 in the shadows
the cost Ill keep to myself ,so not to offend

first things to do is Respray same colour(I hate stone chips!)
18x8 19x9 wheel tyre combo
after that park in garage so no one can scratch or push a trolley in to it

Plans
after driving the old beast with the cam and stuff Ive gottin to use to it and flog it for all its got I wont be going down that route again with this one (to much money for little gains )I will leave the engine stock till it can get the works (T or SC)anything lower than 200@wheels just does'nt do it any more

Currently I have been worrking my arse off to get a Tuff car for about a year and a half and must be done right or not done at all I nearly bought a 250 pursuit to play with but opted out for this option ,I might be mad ,I dont know, I have to spend some of this money I earn why not blow it on a E_SERIES FORD!
