    If you could have any of your old cars back, which would it be?


    Me, I still wish I had my 1986 Olds Delta 88...

    This was the EXACT car (color and all), the only thing is that I had spoke wheels...

    I wish I could find a better pic of it :(

    It would have been a GREAT car to mod as it had the 3.8l V6. Had to get rid of it because I was blind-sided by a drunk arse who ran a red light :grr: (no one was hurt thank god).

    I would have back one of my mini's alongside my current car! Even though it only had a 998cc engine they are still the most fun around the corners. The noise they make is great to, they love to pushed hard. The only reason i got rid of mine was because i could not afford insurance for a big engine, i needed more space, and they were unreliable!

    Would have to be my very first car :

    A 1ltr Mini with straight through Pico exhaust, minilite alloys.

    It was the most uncomfotable, unreliable and noisy car Ive driven - but throw it into a corner and wooooooweeeee :D :D :D

    my mini was like that....great fun, loved it to bits until I slide on mud going into a corner and found another great feature of the mini I had yet to explore......the land back on their wheels!

    I had a 1980 Thunderbird V8... That thing had 238,000 Miles when it got hit by a bus, and I still drove it away... And sold it... And got insurance money from the Bus company... More than what I paid for it... What a great car... Went REALLY fast... if you pedalled hard enough.

    I had a 1983 Opel Manta 400, it was the full rally spec version all 275bhp from a little 2410cc lump. 2 x Weber DCOE 50 carburettors, 220lbft (300Nm) at 5,200rpm, Twin plate clutch, Getrag 5 speed gearbox, direct top gear, driving a heavy duty rear axle with ZF limited slip differential, 2 door coupe with integral roll cage and sump guard. Kevlar bonnet, boot lid, front wings, doors and all spoilers.

    The only problem with it was it was LHD oh and T*** in a truck drove into it and wrote it off :(
