It was actually the bride who insisted on the cars. Her Dad offered to find 3 old school Falcons, but she said she wanted 3 blue B-series cars, but that they had to be loud.@Misrabelle Nice car! The XR BA Falcon has always been a nice clean car. I find it somewhat fitting that the bridemaids got shoved into the only XR6 in the pack... :lol:
Fair enough! I hear the XR8s are pretty heavy, but either way I'm not surprised the tweaked 6 keeps up quite well. I've driven a few older E-Series Falcons, and the torque the 6 chucks out is rather meaty and relentless.It was actually the bride who insisted on the cars.

James - the owner of the Blueprint XR8, got told at the reception that it was lucky he could find "three XR8s" for the day.
It was pointed out that mine was a 6, and the surprised reply came back that it sounded just as tough as the 8's.
I even had a few of the guests come up to me and say they thought it was great that a girl had a car that could run with the boys.
There was some ''musical cars'' going on with the bridal party between the photo venues - purely because James wanted a ride in my car.
He was impressed with how well it kept up to his car in front (only carrying the bride and groom), when I had 4 passengers.
A long time family friend was driving his car, (as James was a groomsman) knowing that he was in the car behind, and therefore unable to do anything but watch, he was pushing it a fair bit.
It's already saved me from needing a new rear bumper after some stupid girl in a Yaris (that she clearly didn't pay for), hit me because she thought I was going to run the red light in front of us.Speedo looks hot. I like the red ticks for higher speeds. Makes you feel !
BUT... What's with the hitch!?!?
