Postby iety2004 » 28 Apr 2005, 17:19

I think half your list of cars is excellent and half is utter shoite!

' 205 1.6 GTI, Renault 5 GT Turbo, Mazda 323 Rallye turbo'... errr no!

As for the others I personally like the 2002 and am not a Lancia fan - deltas cost an arm and a leg too 'cos everyone wants one. How about an XR4x4i? That's what I'd be buying if I had the money (I'd prob have a wagon - V6 powered 4x4 estate, how cool?).

Renault 19 Turbo, pick up a cheap `un, chuck some money at it on tuning bits.....De-badge it......Family Saloon sleeper to pish ALL the Chavs off :)

If I could find one,...a Fiat 132 Super Mirafiori....eek!

BMW E30 M3, I was once involved converting one from LHD to RHD...awesome machine!

I listed them, and i don't think i would like to own half of them, gti, mazda i definutly wouldn't,

I want the R5 gtt cos i do like em, but only the early ones when standard, when people start to stick body kits on for cosmetic reasons rather than practical i think they look poo.

I would Love the rest the especially the 2002 Bmw, or even the Tii i reakon, something about them.

Use to work for ford an wouldn't touch a xr4i, i'll let the kit car boys have em

GET THE INTEGRALE!!!

awesome machines but a decent one will cost you a fair whack. rustbuckets too so check it thoroughly.

parts rare as rocking horse sh1t

Took part on a scatter rally and one of the clues was the name of a lancia garage with 12 deltas lined up along the forecourt. clue was "how long have these wonderful people been here". Stopped for a few mins just too look, didnt care about time on the rally, so so so gorgeous. Finished 2nd in the end (beating an evo 7 in an 1800 vectra - scatter rallies are all about NAVIGATION i tell you!))

get the delta....you need it because you are weak
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

Sorry boys but they don't really do it for me - get rid of the bodykit and the alloys and what have you got? Boxy Italian saloon, granted a 4x4 very quick one but nah, not my cup of tea at all...

Insurance is too crazy on one of those for me, the HF i can afford, but no way on one of those beast, maybe one day tho.

its only one of a few modern day cars i would like to own myself, that and a standard early R5 turbo, maybe the group b ones?

go and stand in the corner and don't come back until you've had a chance to think about what you just said

tim-edit - aimed at the man who said he didnt like the delta

thats nice for them,

cant be easy driving down the road with one of those on the bonnet,

Oh yeah they don't!!!!!

Honestly i can't think of a better way wasting money! and breath!!!

making your car go as fast as it can in a straight line for 10 secs! Oh thats it is it, oh.....ok i'll go turn around.

And yeah i do like the early R5 turbo's, none of that boy racer crap 4 me thanx.

each to there own i guess

Oh yes they do my soft learn'ed friend, every one of those cars pictured is street legal, has completed a 25 mile cruise, filled up on pump gas and had to pass a 'hot start' test (under own power). Next time I want to 'waste' some of my money you'll find me wasting it at the strip thanks very much!

Well I guess you can see the road ok otherwise it wouldn't've passed the test , I also don't think it will ever appear on a production car (Merc Kompressor anyone?!) - and y'know I've a funny feeling that the pedestrians would be able to hear him coming :wink: The other two (Calibra and FD) are nitroused as opposed to blown so that's no problem.

Sorry Ralph, you can keep your dragsters. I agree with iety, highly pointless endeavour invented by unimaginative americans. Requires skill and technical ability sure, but for my money I'd rather watch a good BTCC race.

Iety, watch out for the 2002 turbos - buy a bad one and you will be bankrupt for life. However get a good one and you will not stop smiling. The E30 M3 is a wonderful, wonderful car that I would sell a kidney to own. One of the guys in the BMW club has an M3 Cecotto, a special edition built to commemorate their touring car win. Fantastic car.

Neily - a 132 Mirafiori? Yes please!

i'd steer well clear of an R5t mate. i bought a H plate series 2 for 4 grand 10 years ago and thought it was the dogs danglies until it wouldn't hot start. took it back to the garage as it was under warranty and found out the anti-percilation unit was at fault, the wires had melted oh and they also fitted new discs and pads as they forgot to do it before i had it. a few months later i had lost all the gears apart from fifth and there was a horrible grinding noise from the gearbox. as the warranty had run out i went to my local dealer and they quoted me £800 for the box, a recon cos renault didn't do new ones anymore, plus labour of £300. managed to source a secondhand one so they fitted for me and showed me the mangled gears of my old one. they also advised me that my discs were close to the limit. MOT time now and it failed on the hot start, discs, n/s ball joint and front wheel bearings. they quoted me £900 so i decided to cut my losses and sold it for 2g to a mate. in 12 months that car cost me £2000 but i don't regret ever owning it. women loved it, my mates loved it and it would give anything on the road a run for it's money especially down twisty A roads and open B roads. in summary they're good to drive but horrendous to maintain.

I know i've been warn before, head gaskets go on them as well i belive. But i think the Group A spec can sort them out,

Its the pro's of growing up i get, being able to own and drive faster cars,

I would absolutly love a 2002 turbo, finding one tho :?

I for got to mention Lotus Sunbeam, these cars are all around 700ish tpft area, when i get a job i think i could live with that,

I the computer couldn't find HS chevette for a quote so i don't know.

What year where they produced?
