Smile My pride and joy & weekend toy

Ok, I'm posting pictures of my cars. Let me know what you think.
My daily driver EF, is a stock 6 with a 5 speed manual. (mods to come later)

And my XF. I have posted a picture of the car, just before I bought it, while it was still at the dealer, and pics of it know.
I plan to have a full engineers certificate for a blown 351 that I wanna put in there, a 9" diff with LSD, and tough box to cope with it. I wanna make it a damn mean & tuff street machine.
The blower will be an under-bonnet one. No one will suspect that there is a blown 351 in an XF! which will make it very fun at the lights

Right now I've just started working on the look of the car.
Lowered (4.25" clearance from the ground.)
Polished 12 slotters for now.
Black with blue pearl metallic paint. (shame the pics don't show it)
and at the moment, I'm working on the interior. (hunting for LTD grey velour)

The little silver box in the cigarette lighter compartment is a cop radar if you where wondering... it's saved my ass a few times.

Here's my XF just before I bought it....

Nice rides there matey. Good to see another EF manual driver. I'm only too familiar with that EF interior exactly like mine.

Love the Xf there as well, a big transforation from when you got it from the car yard to now.

look after them matey.

Very nice cars.

Although you may want to blank out your plates, especially if you have a radar detector. :s5
