Smile RASTUS...the car.

G'day all, finally got around to borrowing a digital camera off a mate to take a few pics of my car. Hope you like em. I'd like to think of it as an XR8 without the quad lights.

Yes I too would like to say well done. Very nice looking car and if possible I would like to see an interior shot as well. Fairmont Ghia would be very impressive to sit in I bet.

Thanks all. Yeh I would have taken a pic of the inside but alas it's the family car and the mess and crap inside made me not take one. I'll clean it up and take one soon. Basic leather and momo wheel n stuff.Very cozy.
XLR8, it's got the Tickford suspension already and rides pretty firm.I dunno if i'd want it much lower.Mind you it would look even better I agree.

Is that Dual Tip Exhaust standard or did you steal it off an XR8?

That's the way she was when I got it.It was previously a Ford Exec vehicle so whether or not they done it I don't know.The whole reason I bought it is because it's got everything from Tickford that you could option from the factory (so the plaque says under the bonnet) and I wouldn't have to do much if anything at all. I'm glad 'cause I still haven't seen one exactly the same yet,close but not exactly. Unlike other cars getting around.
Here's a rear pic anyway. Will get them Interior pics soon.
