Very nice looking!
Now, you say they gave a good price because it was 'only missing two cylinders'? (he, he, he)

I tell ya, black is the color to have. When I first saw AUII XR at the MMS, I thought the front looked too busy, still does in light colors, but I've grown to luvvv it, especially in BLACK!!!

The car was cheap because of what was parked behind it in the original picture. Sure gives you good bargaining power when you buy two vehicles

Yeh, very nice looking car. I agree with the views of the others, black is the colour to have, my car's black...it's just a mongrel colour to keep clean. Mean though.:mad3:
Look after it..and the ute!
Now, if only I could get my boss to come around to the Ford way of thinking so he'll get a Falcon ute for me. he he.:cool:
Russell.

Ute is an XLS in Congo Green (almost as hard as the XR6 to keep clean).
Opinion of the ute - well I bought the two Fords and a new Holden Rodeo V6 ute at much the same time. Lets just say that the Rodeo doesn't get driven much.......uses far too much fuel compared to the Falcon. The Rodeo gets used when I need some ground clearance.

The Ford utility is great - reasonably quick, handles very well, stops well; ground clearance is a bit low but that is because it is an XLS (half tonne option) but considering it has leaf rear end it hangs on pretty well. Also nothing like having a utility with CD and cruise control (and manual)

Mate, very very nice car there, looks the good with the body kit.

Hmm after reading your posts about the utes, i think i might of met you on the bathurst club run, where everyone thought you were venom s.

After seeing nicely kept black XR's and falcons it's really interested me.

Welcome Abboard mate... :D :D :D
