Nah I'm in the NT the XW is in Qld. Sorry it's not for sale, I've owned it 7 1/2 years, and I'm not about to let it go, I'm the 3rd owner, the first 2 were in the same family. It may be a hack, but I still like it

Hey does anyone read Performance Ford Magazine, because in the latest issue (I think), the one with the blown TS50 on the cover, has my XD in it. In the readers cars section, last page bottom left hand corner, it won the prize.

It's also got a feature on Des Thomas' purple '32 roadster. I did the story and pics. No recognition though...

Hey, that's pretty good for an "action" shot by a photographer that doesn't give a shit about cameras and who was talking left handed at the time.
