Re: X series

All of them I think! There are heaps around but certainly a lot of AU utes (& now BAs), you don't see utes earlier than XF that often though (or for that matter sedans!). I would say there are two reasons: 1 they are 20 years old now and 2 unleaded petrol.

Re: X series

A lot of xw/xy are stashed away in the back corners of sheds waiting for money for restoration.

Re: X series

Love to give my XB a resto. As you said you dont see many around. Mines not in perfect condition (cracking bog etc) but it gets looks because you dont see them on the road. As for the unleaded fuel thing, drop a later model motor in :) I did and she flys.
