Fordy FINALLY gets his BA XR8 Ute

Its been a long time coming, but i have finally taken delivery of my BA falcon and first new car ever.

Theres a short story behind it that i thought id share with you all, its late at night too so forgive me if i ramble or it doesnt make sense

It all started when the pictures of the BA XR8 were released and i spotted that buldge, and i said to myself i had to have one. The savings started but the XW kept getting in the way and i kept spending money on it. Finally i decided to put the xw on hold and get hold of one of these buldges only to find a block of land for sale at a good price that i couldnt resist, now both the BA and the XW were put on hold, this was 1 year ago.
Two months ago we finished the house and said we better get this ute now or else its not going to happen, so we worked out our budget and finances and said yes we can do this. So 8 weeks ago i signed the papers and started the long wait into owning this Ute, i told no one cos i wanted it to be a surprise to all my family and friends, therefore i didnt even post anything on here about me ordering it as some of them browse the site regularly.

So here you have it after 2 years of dreaming it has finally become a reality.

Couldnt get any good pics as i got home pretty late and it was dark, but it has hard cover, 18' and sports steering wheel. I'll post some better ones tommorro.

Thanks to FF for all the information i needed in helping me buy this now i just gotta save up for the mods

Good decision mate! You will love it !
You will notice it loosens up more as the km's get higher..good choice on colour, you got the last of the citric acids :)
Have fun with it mate.

Re: Fordy FINALLY gets his BA XR8 Ute

Well done Fordy, good to see another XR8 ute out there, you will be very happy with your purchase. Wait till she loosens up a bit and you'll see how tight they are new, it's like a different car

Then all you gotta do is go out and beat them GT's down the 1/4....
