My names Brent and this is my first car.
I bought it back in 2008 off a mate that wanted a car with better fuel economy [he bought a 2008 suzuki swift]. He bought it from the auctions as a repairable write off as it had fresh water damage.
As i was looking for a car it was a tough choice between a 1998 Ford XR6 manual with the tickford vct motor or The VX.
Needless to say i got my sanity back and bought the vx for $11,500 with 105,000 k's on it.
Since then it's gone through the paces from getting a cammed LS1 & 6speed
It also copped a full genuine vx hyper yellow ss dash, seats & cluster, Kings low suspension with monroe gt sport shocks and Genuine vx gts rims.
Although the vx presents very well, it flaws are a few hail stone dents from the last big storm, paint faded on the roof and stone chips on the bonnet so its due for a re-spray.
Future plans are to get some 3.89.1 or 4.11 diff gears and a re-spray.
For those who don't know, THIS CAR IS DAILY DRIVEN!
