buying a XB coupe

Finally biting the bullet and getting my dream car. I'm getting it after my 21st. (its my grandads). It's an XB coupe brand new 302 with 500kms on it. Brand new 2brl carb. Car has done 80,000 miles. Only problem is its the goldy brown colour. Interior is in show room condition. and has always been covered. 1 owner car. $2000 bucks ... probabilly get away with 1500.

Your Grandad has already promised that car to me. What's his phone number again?

Ooooh I hate you.

A good mate I used to cruise around with when I had my weekender XWGT had a XB Coupe, wild violet with white interior, I'm sure we've all seen one like it and drooled. What set it off most though was the fat rubber on the rears, 285's if I recall. Nothing sets those Coupe's off more than fat rubber! Still loved my XW but seeing my stock cheesecutters next to his coupe with its guard struggling to hold the rubber in just made me envious.
