biggrin It's here It's bloody here

Picked up my XT V8 manual yesterday and just couldn't stop driving it, like how about 200km before stoping for fuel.
Just one FU@#*:KEN great car, made my ford explorer handle and feel like HQ holden.
The gearbox is miles ahead of my EF XR6 box but the motor is so quite that I keeped stalling it at first.
