Old xf wagon I owned years ago was one of my old favourite cars, it looked like a pice of s**t and I used to fill it with fire wood till it,s belly was on the ground but this thing was reliable as and never stopped. Not to mention Lithgow to Orange in 35 min's. Only car I liked more was the 78 xc or as I later found out it was one of the xc1/2's, wishI still had that one.

Nice XF,looks neat,especially the interior,do you have any further mods planned for the car? Love the centerlines as well,gives it an old skool look,i think i have some lowered springs out of my XE that would be good for that car,good stuff...Vito.

Cool,cobalt blue on a XF would look awesome,just one thing,you might have some problems getting the rego'd with a 351 clevo,as the XF's never came with that motor.Im pretty sure a 302 windsor would be legal? not quite sure on the rules for this.You could put later model 302 windsor runnung gear in the car,as i said im not quite sure,it;s just what iv'e heard,anyone else know? Either way should be a awesome ride.When i get the rear springs out of my XE ,i could let you know as i would need to sell the whole set,look at my car in my garage under ''Ram's EF 5 speed'' their are photos of my XE with the springs in,hope that helps,cheers...Vito

I like it man. XF's are cool, and yours just looks great with the XG grill and twinlights.
