Hey guys, just came back from the pickles auction and got a new car,

its a '86 XF Ghia, Silver, EFI.... its is pretty good condition but needs new front rhs gaurd, front bumper, right hand Headlight, and maybe just a polish..

well i know u wont believe how much i got it for, the bid started at $50 and went off to $200 so i put my hand up to $250 and no one else bidded...

ill take pics when the truck brings it over...

oh yeh and wat a coincidence, the previous owner of it is a mate of xf6250...

yeh thats the first thing i thought of, the back wheels are currently 215's so thats ok and the front are 205's, how much would it cost for a pair of 225's or 235's

i was thinking getting chrome door handles like XF Falcon, how much did they cost?

Buy spare door handles no matter which ones you get , as they break easily .

yeh very good question, but im not very happy with it, its done 322,000 and i never knew coz of the cruize control its all digital and i cant start it up at auction...... but from the looks of it the engine is pretty good and i also found a service book in it and its empty, does that mean i can make up crap and put it in and show ppl if i wanna sell it?? and it had all these reciepts of when it had the GAS installed and and stuff, the GAS costed $350 and it was install 16/12/2002

It's all running now i only need to fix the damage, i drove it around the street and it has WAY MORE power than my other XF.

DAMN! I forgot what u told me.....but i know i was laughin at how you did it :D

322,000 aint that bad....my bro just bought an ED fairmont with 300,000 on it....it was all done with highway driving though....and i took it for a spin....DRIVES FANTASTIC! and i floored it for a bit....and it drives EXTREMELY WELL!

the slogan is true IMO....BUILT FORD TOUGH.

BTW...ill try get some pics of it....blackish ED fairmont.....factory sunroof...he will put his EF Xr mags on it soon too...

u can put a 235 on it no worries, but they bulge big time, 225's fit perfect and bulge nicely.
