Welcome to a wonderful world. Where Holdens are just something to blow away in looks, handling and , dare I say it, performance.

(ok we know they do ok in a straight line, but given a track, pft! they are nothing but backmarkers)

I know it not quite comparable with xr 6 and 8's but I only paid $19k, for my manual futura last September and that had less than 20,000km on the clock.

Yes it was a bargain, I should of bought it, all it needed was a good clean & service. We are planning on coming up to Sydney for the All Ford's Day but he can't decide if he'll take his XYGT (see photos in gallery) or the sprint but I think the sprint may get the nod, new toy & all. If the club can organise a day out at Wakefield, you'll hear us coming.
