What cars do you all drive?

Recommended Posts

After reading the top three cars post would be interested to know what cars

you all drive see if we all have similar tastes as we all similar interests.

I drive a Peugeot 106 GTI and no I am in no way a boy racer it is completely

stock and very fast :D and handles like a dream. I am a real hot hatch fan and

for a 1.6 ltr car it embarrasses others that can cost three times as much.

2002 Pontiac Bonivile SSEI . As the old saying goes , turbos are nice but I'd rather be blown !!! ( Well , ok , its only a supercharger but its close to being a blower [;)] )

Rover 200Vi which is a 1.8i tri-cam 16 valve VVC engine(same engine as fitted into the early Lotus Elise and Caterham SS 1800)

Handling is great and I've seen 135mph (obviously on a private road!!), sorry about the pic but it was taken on my phone!!

I am boring :D

A '91 Ford Sierra 2.0 DOHC  , was sic & tired about the "odd cars" who only gave me trouble lol

This one even has the factory radio out of '91 in it :)

I don't even bother to put up a picture, just go to your nearest old people home or junkyard to see a couple.

Cheers Theo ill look into that yes they are lovely handling
cars it was voted in the top three handling cars in the world by Top Gear in
the UK
( a slight over exaggeration) but still nice they got recognized. I love the
rallye models too (im a 106 nut) and plan to get a mark 1 Rallye as a run
around for my better half and for a blast through the country roads for myself.

2003 HSV Clubsport R8....with a few minor mods, this car does the quarter mile in the high 12's, 0-100 in just under 5 seconds. Absolute beast to drive.

... 0-100 in just under 5 seconds...

I can only assume you mean KPH, otherwise we talking Veyron beater here! Although your one does look very nice

Obviously, being 15 and all, I don't have a car, but dad does...

Alpina B10 V8, one of only about 1000 ever made. 350bhp, 350ft/lbs of torque, 0-60 in 5 secs all the way to 174mph. Also a superb proven Grand Tourer.

Well, it's not a necessarily a car, but it's practical for me. (My girlfriend drives a Corolla)

 

Only a measly 2.7L 4 banger, but with a 5 speed manual and free wheeling hubs [:D

The PIAA 520 spots are for late-night 'trail scouting'  [;)]

My daily driver is a 2002 Honda Civic Type-R. 200bhp from 2 litres with no forced induction and a 8,400rpm limiter. Excellent...! My weekend toy is a 1987 Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth. One of only 500 made and approximately 150 remaining. It's fully prepped for concours with detailing of all areas of the car (including the underside). It has done 27,000 miles since new and in totally original. I have made some modifications to the engine which means it has 330bhp. Sorry for the bad photo - it's off my phone...!

urm, hangs head in shame..... vectra sri and transit van

No shame afterall the Transit IS the backbone of Britain + there's always one flashing you out the way of the fastlane LOL[:D]

I drive 2005 SEAT Leon Cupra and an Mk1 Mazda Eunos when the weather is nice with the roof off at weekends OR "Sideways" with hardtop when its wet - I prefer the later!!

Apologies for the double post as I started a similar thread which as been moved to this folder without me realising - Sorry!!
