Hi a new Sierra owner here

Post by KarnivoolFan » Sun Dec 25, 2016 5:48 pm

Hello, I have a Sierra now and I joined to have a knowledge base and parts base to lean on. There aren't too many places for me to join to lurk and take in information. I'm happy to be here. Thanks

Am I the only one thinking what parts would look nice on my XR?

Power windows up front and cranks in the back? Interesting.

The wheels are factory RS wheels made by Borbet and it has a factory RS body kit. I assume it is very close to fully loaded. It was first registered by Ford Werke AG themselves as a runabout for a higher employee of the company.

Very nice. What year?

We have a member in the States who has a Scorpio with that engine.
