Hi all,
Just thought I would put up a few photos of the Old Boys Toy as the family refers to it. My '91 XR8 auto.
Purchased back in February this year for $3,500 i reckon i got a good buy. Although it has done 334,000 the old 5 Litre still gets up and goes when I want it to. Has had a few mods such as king springs all round, pacemaker headers and stainless 2.5 system, and the 18x8 Stryker wheels and Nexen tyres which I put on recently.
All i have done to it is a cut and polish and a new waterpump. I also put in an ED grill to match the number plate EXR8ED-X-Rated.
The previous owner supplied me with all receipts for work he had done over the years he had it. ($7,500 worth)
Only other mod I have considered is a five speed but time will tell if it happens.
Meantime i will keep getting out in it and transforming from man to boy.
