Thumbs up My New Ride!!! Woohoo!

Hey guys...

Just got myself a replacement for the EF Fairmont Ghia..

An 1998 EL XR6 Manual! My frikkin god, how much faster is the manual!
Has 122,000 on the clock, no apparent mods.
No marks or dints at all, clean as a whistle! Inside it schmicko too!
Only thing it needs is a new aerial, its snapped of, but part from that, I cant fault it.
Pics here:

Re: My New Ride!!! Woohoo!

Thanks guys..the pictures dont do it justice, it was dusk and the camera aint too great, ill get better pics tomorrow afternoon in the sun.
I didnt use the climate control at all in the Ghia, and leather is nice, but the XR seats are more comfortable I reckon, as they hug you better.
At first I thought the clutch was very heavy, but I am already used to it, and the gearbox has a nice shift too, not much travel at all between gears, very nice!
