GT bulge decals?

Hi all,

When walking back home from the bus stop (don't have the EB atm), I saw what looked like a white GT with blue stripes. I noticed that there was some writing on the side of the bulge, but the writing said "BOSS 260". A tryhard XR8 perhaps?

Do GTs/XR8s have writing on the bulges? If not, the owner should have shot the detailer!

Re: GT bulge decals?

Sounds like an XR8 allright (can't see a GT owner putting 260 on the bulge)

I think a few of us on here know about that XR8, or one just like it.

outback_ute: Maybe it's a sleeper? lol

Genebaby: it must be famous (or infamous) then! Either that or it covers a lot of kms.

Re: GT bulge decals?

I saw these decals on a XR 8 at Strapp Ford in the showroom a few months ago and i think they can also be made available on a GT saying Boss 290
