My new XR8 will be ready in about 6 weeks. Another 6 months and that will be replaced too.

Re: How long do you plan to keep your BA XR?

Had my last car (302 XC GXL 5 speed) for 20 years (& still have it). I dont see any reason why I wont have my XR8 in 20. Hopefully by then I will have a few other Fords in the stable as well.

Blueprint BA XR8 5 speed -Premium brakes - Premium sound - Leather - side airbags - Tint - SS Inductions cold air kit
78 XC Fairmont GXL 302 Cleveland T5 Gearbox factory dual exhaust

Have already convinced the minister for finance that we need a GT upgrade, bring on BA II.

Mess with the bull, get the horns!

Re: How long do you plan to keep your BA XR?

I really havent got an answer to that, I think after the TS and the price tag of a gtp made me move out of the market....

I was happy with the car, dont get me wrong, but we do these things i supose

Ive still got the Ts when its finished
