Poll Time !!!
Vw beetle, cos I've got one but i wouldn't say no to a Stag or Mini
None of these would be on my wish list!...... except, possibly, a Stag. I've owned 2 minis and they're great fun, but agonisingly uncomfortable for anything other than short journeys. I also borrowed a mate's Minor Travellor many years ago, and swore never again!! Never known anything so lethally tail happy in my life!! Have no direct experience of any of the others, so can't really comment, but, as I say, none of them are on my wish list!!
It would have to be a series 1 Rover P6...
Camper.But only a split-screen. With a decent engine.Oh dear... time to take out a second mortgage.Mini's close second, but been there, done that!
Not arsed about any of that lot. If forced to pick one, s'pose the Stag because its Leyland.
Why isn't 'Austin 1800' on the list? Thats as mainstream as i'm going on this one. Great cars though.
Moggy Minor.Great handling / steering, good parts back up and very tuneable. Hasn't become 'fashionable' in the way that Minis & VWs have. Also the Moggy 'scene' manages to operate with just two clubs (one for all models and another for just the commercials), both of which welcome modified / customised cars, and are able to cooperate with each other!
Mrs W expressed a desire to own a Figaro after spotting a bright pink one during a drive in the country this morning, so Figaro it is. None of them float my boat to be honest.
Any poll containing Mini, Minor, and Beetle, should also include the Citroen 2CV surely?? That's where my vote goes anyway, so it's "other" for me!Saw a Nissan Figaro in black yesterday....Don't laugh, but I thought it looked great....
YIKES ! old thread
I have casted my vote, lets see what the new (and not so new) folk of autoshite think now ?
I voted other, as if we're talking 'real' classics, I'd want a P5B
I'd want a P5B
Please say CoupÃƒÂ© ??
I love the armchair like leather seats , sheer sex
A coupe of course.
I'd have to re-find my love for Hamlets though, and get my smoking jacket drycleaned
I would like an MGB, but I don't want to have to grow a beard and discuss camshafts over a mug of cocoa
Peugeot 604 or 504
Renault 30 or Fuego/18 Turbo
Volkswagen Polo Mk2 G40 (yes Mk2)
Volkswagen Scirocco Mk1 GTI (i miss my old one )
Ford Cortina Mk1
That Tagora was the one the OLDSKOOL claimed to own.
I'd actually like to own a Beetle and Mini. Whilst trying to avoid the oh so wacky and original scene for both. The Mini is regarded as a great handling car and I just feel a Cooper is one of those things I need to own in my driving career. Wouldn't mind a Beetle, although I imagine it would last about a week before I got sick of it.
I've voted for the Stag, as I would genuinely love to own one. Mmmmm that engine note.........
Off the list, I'd go for a Minor or a Figaro(with the boost turned up for added grin factor).
For me it would have to be a Mercedes-Benz Heckflosse W110/111/112 from the Sixties.
Of those on the list I've always fancied having an early mini, the way they were originally designed, 850cc and all. GR8 4 PICNICS WITH THE LADEYZ
A friend had a late '90s Cooper that was alright but was cursed with daft aftermarket ally door handles/window winders that were really painful on the knee.
I've no real desire for a Beetle and I think I came out the other side of MGB ownership reasonably unscathed earlier this year.
I picked the Stag, but I'm not too sure now. Think I'd rather have the Campervan as it's practical and probably the most reliable (I think?).
I voted Mini as they've always been my first love but a DS or SM would be my ultimate classic - unfortunatley I think they wiill always be out of my market
I've picked the Minor. I used to be really down on them but if I had to choose from that list it would be a bog standard late model in Trafalgar blue with 1100 engine - very nice in a way but I'd have to have a gun to my head to put my money where my mouth is...
MG Metro mk1 FTW!!
If you can add them to your list......
I would like an MGB, but I don't want to have to grow a beard and discuss camshafts over a mug of cocoa Buy the right MGB and you can compare laden weights and whether B-series or O-series is best!
I started this reply to ask wtf you were on about but the penny's dropped now.
For reasons that aren't clear MG Midgets are starting to appeal to me.
Four seats, A/C, a V8 and a half decent boot. That's practical enough for me.
