$60 000 Xr6t

Went to visit my mate at Alto Ford this morning. Well, I hope he's a mate after buying my last four Fords off him.

They had a Phantom XR6T with every option known to man sitting in the showroom. Sat nav, 18" wheels, premium brakes, leather, just to name a few. Nearly had me convinced to trade in my AUII XR6 until he told me the price, around $60 000

I told him that if I was going to spend that kind of money, I'd order a GT.

The good news is, the wife has given me the all clear. I'll be ordering a XR6T with leather when my ship returns from our deployment in the Persian Gulf next year.

I knew I married the right woman!

Thanks for the comments guys, we leave in March unless things happen sooner.

AP - the XR6T was ready for immediate delivery. The only option missing was a sunroof.

The sales manager ordered it, then was sacked. It's only done 43Kms.

The optional 18" alloys looked fantastic!

if it came with 12 pounds boost instead of 6 i would fly my poverty-stricken bum down to sydney and take out a loan to buy it, $20 a week for the next 120 years (if you include interest)...that sounds like one very very nice car!

Jamie> yeah mate you'll be cashed up after your "overseas trip". BTW, do you want someone to babysit your car while you're away? - just to take it out once a week and blow the cobwebs out heheheh.

Enjoy the Tax free pay and the AASM.

Skimmers get all the fun....




Remember that in the real world there are only 2 kinds of ships...

Submarines and Targets!!!!

Only joking... Stay Safe and good luck.

And submariners get all the money! You guys deserve it though, be stuffed if I'd go under water!

I've already got the AASM, I was there during the 1991 Gulf war on the Brisbane. The money will be nice though.

laminge, I can't do that, I need someone to bring in the extra pay packet!

I also found out what the real price of the XR8 is. I won't reveal it as I'm not sure if the price has been released yet. I will say though, that it will be a pleasant suprise.
