  1. Nice buy @Faker. I like this model a lot. Maybe the nadir of stylish car design for Mitsubishi, their currency models look uninspiring.
  2. £3,500 for this 1990 Honda Accord. Accord
  3. P100 in that mid 1980s violet colour that adorned many a base model Fawd. £4,495 - should this be in the ebay "Bargains" thread instead?? 1986 P100
  4. Well saved! I remember What Car? magazine doing a group road test on the Sao Penza in 1991 or thereabouts. It was pitted against the Proton 1.3, Maestro 1.3 Clubman and Mitsubishi Colt 1300 GL. The Sao was criticised for it's poor build quality.
  5. Zut alors! A Fiat 130 for sale in France. One of the finest looking cars ever imo. 1973 Fiat 130
  6. I can do what my parents owned from the 1980s. This economical Horizon 1.3 LS replaced a fabulous but thirsty Vauxhall Royale 2800 so naturally I disliked it: 1980 Talbot Horizon 1.3 LS by Matt W, on Flickr In 1988 we become a two car family. My dad bought this: 1983 MG Maestro 1600 ERW 333Y by Matt W, on Flickr Horizon was sold and replaced with this fun thing in 1990 that dad used: Suzuki ST 90 K pick up by Matt W, on Flickr The Suzuki didn't stay too long unfortunately so it was just down to the MG 1600. However, in 1993 it was replaced by the navy blue Carlton 2200i CD. It wasn't as tidy as the Royale but cheaper to run. I passed my driving test in January 1995 and so I was lucky to drive it several times and I loved it. 1986 Vauxhall Carlton 2200i CD by Matt W, on Flickr The Carlton was replaced in 1997 by the damaged repaired mark 3 Astra 1.4 (60 bhp) California. This spec didn't have power steering (an important requirement) so it was retro fitted to the car when it was repaired. I was a bit snobby about this Astra like I was about the Horizon as it was a low spec smaller car but it provided great service. Here it is with some awful wheel trims my dad thought would make the car look nicer: 1994 Vauxhall Astra 1.4i (60PS) California by Matt W, on Flickr Astra was sold for a Renault Megane Scenic 1.6e RT, which was replaced by a Scenic 1.6 16v Sport, replaced by a Focus C-Max 1.6 diesel. I didn't like that one much because it had too much nasty vinyl inside. After my mum passed on it was briefly replaced by a Peugeot 308 1.4 Verve which my dad didn't gel with so then replace with the 2007 Merc A150 Avantgarde which will be his last car.
  7. I prefer Santana's earlier work but... Back in 2002 I nearly bought a 2000 W reg Marea 1.6 100 bhp. As my insurance NCB situation was pants, I chickened out and bought a SEAT with a less exciting 60 bhp at the same dealer instead.
  8. The boxy older shape Merc A Class. My dad has one (A150 Avantguarde auto).
  9. Back in 1997 I was tempted by a D reg VW Jetta 1.3 on a used car forecourt for £1795. 0-60 in 17 seconds. A second slower than the Golf 1.3 C. There's something about these unmodified 80s/90s VWs...
  10. I used to know where this Camry was parked. I never got round to papping it for my flickr stream sadly.
  11. Rover 214 with 19,000 miles in Lincolnshire, £800. Looks like a possible gR8 buy. 1994 R8
  12. Oh absolutely! In fact I walked to work and back today. Will likely do so again tomorrow. Re: bicycle - the roads are not much fun for cyclists for the most part. I get overtaken by ADULTS on their bikes illegally using the pavement.
  13. Fecking traffic, caused by some roadworks near my area. It took me 30 minutes to drive home from work - around 1.8 to 2 miles. This is just over what it would have taken me to walk. Once the roadworks are complete it should reduce my drive home by a bit. Drive to work at 7:35am = 5 minutes. 10 minutes at the I end up catching the end of the school rush hour traffic as I now start and leave work a little earlier in the day. I'm getting right royally pissed off with driving at the mo. Fecking traffic left right and centre. I may decide to sell my car and go without.
