What cars do you all drive?

Recommended Posts

I drive a Focus estate as a daily but others include

1985 Capri 2.8i Special

1991 Subaru MV (Brat)

P1063839_zps3e73555b.jpg

1963 Anglia Combi Van

P9211421_zpsdf68b5a6.jpg

1986 Mitsubishi Lancer GLX

P8047573_zpsff80c983.jpg

Mitsubishi L300 LWB

P2200673.jpg

Think that's it !!

Sweet Fleet with all the bases covered . That Brat would be very cool with a body lift and huge boots and rims tucked under it - just like the Tamiya version .

Love the Fox Mustangs :) I miss mine :( Did a few things to it but import costs to the UK held me back from doing too much as I was only young when I had it... Drag raced it at Santa Pod in a series called UKStreetracers but never got anywhere as low 14s weren't really enough! Had great fun though!

Mods I did were:

Azev A Wheels

LX tail lights

Cobra grille

BBK CAI

3.55 gears

B&M Short-throw shifter

Underdrive pulleys with A/C delete

Hedman headers, X-pipe and 2 Flowmasters - oooh the noise!

My daily runner, 2011 Corsa VXR Blue Edition called "Meg" :) Running stage 2 upgrades @ 215BHP and 304lb/ft. Detailed twice a week and ran on either T99 fuel or Shell 99 fuel. I am in no way a boy racer and never have been. Always try and look after the car and maintain it the best I can.

Comes with a few differences from the factory from other Corsa VXR's, Satin titanium finish on the wheels, privacy glass on the rear 3 windows, blue inserts on the seats with blue stitching, blue stitching on the steering wheel, Arden blue vent surrounds and a satin titanium finish on the diffuser.

I've had to change my car recently. Needed 4 seats, and quite fancied a new beetle. However, insead I decided on one of these. It's got an lpg conversion, which helps with the running costs.

update on the car front, dad managed to write off the w208 CLK I had it for 7 years not a scratch him .... for 2 not bad for 75 eh :/ anyway, now replaced with the same car ( I tried to get him in to something smaller but meh dads) this time its a CLK Avantgarde but on a 03 plate better then my old one which was a 2000.

it need some tidying up but that will keep him bussy at least (or well me as I usually get ropped in)

mine is still safe and sound :D

@Theibault - thanks mate, bought it as a standard FQ300 and did a few mods, remapped & running 370bhp in the end.

Love your evo 7, looks awesome in white, I even retro fitted evo 7 rear lights on my 8 as they look better than the standard ones.

I'll have another one one day, unless I make the jump to supercardom ;)

It's an 8, I think you missed an I on the rear badging. ;) US only got Evos from the 8 series on. It's been a trooper. Almost 90k miles now on it. I've had so many mods I've lost count. Only thing left to due is convert it to E85 gas and that should take me from the 400ish bhp to 450ish bhp.

Haha my mistake, must have just thought it was a 7 because you hardly ever see white 8's in the uk, been a long day!

Evo's are surprisingly easy to live with, even with big power, if only our fuel was as cheap as yours :(

An old pic from the previous owner so I don't mind showing the UK plate as A) it's not in the UK any more and B) on different plates and C) I can't work out where the editing software is on the Mac :P but this is my summer driver (it takes me ten mins to walk to work so I don't need to use it in bad weather and it was never intended as a daily driver anyway) - '91 Porsche 944 S2 with 89k on the clock, 17" Cup 1s shod with Pirelli P-Zero Rosso's, since added a 968 ClubSport steering wheel, towing eye cover and a period Blaupunkt Stereo Radio Cassette (I don't do music when driving so quite happy to not have some bright silver Kenwood CD player spoiling the interior thankyouverymuch).

Currently in at my local indie for new clutch cylinders, then a due a good detail with a coat of Swissvax and under cover in the garage over winter.

I do fancy a Midget as well, dirt cheap summer ragtop fun.

@Leethal Driver very nice, gotta love a classic porsche

Cheers bud, seems a shame to keep it under wraps for a few months now but it's been garaged for the last 10 yrs odd so best keep it that way i think.
