I love that un-scene'd Polo on original dealer plates, why did certain car brands have their own font? That one seems to be a VW-only job.

the look on the face of retrogeezeress says a lot, did you take her out for dinner to make up :) It' a sort of bored, resigned to her fate look !

Identical to the L-plater I passed my test in (Aug 95). Absolutely no desire to own one for old times' sake, though :)

Very nice BRM Rover:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v30/re...

I'm quite a fan of these, much more interesting than an MG ZR! My ultimate 'sleeper' Rover hatchback with poke. What engine do they have? The bright red leather interior is fetching on them. Not sure I understand the need for the bright orange air vent but at least it easily identifies the car in your rear view mirror! :D

And finally, a very clean Polo on the outskirts of Stoke:

Wow this one puts the other much newer one (but still 19 years old!) on this thread to shame! Must be one of the very first bread van MkIIs

We were on our way to Alton Towers, I know how to treat my lady!

In my mundano, behind the X reg Polo.

Oh right yes I see now. Well she could actually have been checking out that car going the opposite direction in the wing mirror, assuming she found it interesting! I take it Stuno knows your car or it was just a lucky guess! :lol:

Umm, 'sleeper' and the orange air vent that easily identifies the car dont really go hand in hand! The orange was in homage to the BRM race cars. I agree with the interior being nice (it's not that bright), for the most part. Some of the turned aluminium looks a bit tacky though.They're 1.8, 143bhp i reckon. Have an LSD and were meant to be decent drivers cars although rarely came out top of tests. I looked at buying a couple but both were crap examples and never got around interested enough for a test drive

My 1st thought was, Triumph Spitfire from the rear, but I rekon you could be right, from the front!

You can get a 5-door 'vi' with the same engine as the garish BRM (no LSD though), it just looks like a high-spec 214i. Great sleeper. 8)

Agreed, I think the vi was actually a tad faster than the BRM for some reason. Wonder whether the KV6 fits into a 200 shell?

Compared to a boggo spec 200 no but compared to an MG ZR it wasn't exactly shouting it's credentials! Infact apart from the MG ZR 160, I don't think any of the other MG ZR editions had any right to be more 'in your face' than a BRM! The BRM was more a wolf in sheep's clothing compared to the majority of MG ZRs which were sheep in wolves' clothing! :wink:
