If a car scares me the first time I take it for a test drive, Im usually sold. If it feels like an ordinary car, I also wouldnt be interested.

Re: Content: Ford Sierra XR8

That one was a particularly good example it seemed. I must be honest the XR8 while nice because its the only V8 Sierra in the world is a little underwhelming, whether the one we drove was a dud dont know but performance wasnt much to write home about, it sounded good but the power dropped off notice...

Re: My Perana
