Well we drove her home tonight at around 7.30pm. Must say it is a really, really nice car to drive. I'd say it'd have to be the best modern cruiser i've been in. Not the most powerful thing but nice and torquey but subtle, power comes on nice when you want but there just isnt enough.
Had just under a 1/4 tank and to fill up from that with BP Ultimate 98 @ $1.64per litre cost $85 which was around 51 litres IIRC. Fuel consumption wasnt too bad, average l/100km on our short trip home was 12.5 which i thought was quite good.
Once i've given it a good once over, i.e clean, polish and wax etc, i'll start to have a little play.
Will update as we go along and should have some more pics up soon.

Its nice to drive around in something that's a bit more refined and doesn't make you want to put your foot flat to the floor all the time - sometimes.

Yeah thats right mate. Dont get me wrong the ute is nice to cruise but it has nothing on this. As you said, i enjoy feeding the boot into the ute as thats what i built it for whereas the Ghia is much more enjoyable just to cruise and give it a bit when ya feel the urge.

Yeah i currently get around in an AU forte. Would love a ghia or preferably a AU fairlane simply for the interior and cruise appeal.

Awesome pickup buddy

How about a TL50?? There is one for $16K at the moment, that is a steal! A true luxo barge with handling and power. :D

That would be the ultimate, if you dont mind the extra length and the BA sorta look, but for interior and cruise appeal thats got it all.
