WOW that hurt........is that the best you can do?
whats your problem?
only tryin to have some fun.
Both of you stop it. Painkiller if you want to call people names go back to school or something.
If you can't be an adult when someone criticises your ideas then it's time to stop putting them out there.
heres what i could afford and that is pushing it
It has 13,000 miles on it after 6 years of ownership. It's a weekend toy only.
It averages around 22mpg driven carefully, but tends to sit at around 13mpg most of the time, but that's US gallons, so nearer to 17mpg on average. Ownership is actually cheap. It has no official EU recorded CO2 figures so I pay a flat £220 road tax.. I think.. forget the exact figure now. It is on a 4K mileage specialist American car insurance policy that is actually cheaper than my Nissan Micra, and being so well cared for, and well serviced, has incurred no repair costs except replacement of brake pads and fluid after boiling my brakes on a track day.
In many ways, apart from the initial cost of buying it (which, due to the great exchange rate at the time was only 21K) it has incurred less costs than my Nissan Micra.
In light of the arguments in this thread... can I just add this is a thread about REALISTIC dream cars... ones you can afford to buy and run, and service, and insure. I'd love a fully restored 68 Shelby GT500 KR, but I'll never afford to buy one. I'd love a Gumpert Apollo but that will never happen either.
I have always wanted a Mustang though, and that is an attainable car that in this country anyway, is rare, exclusive and impractical enough to raise it above the average car. That's what this thread is about surely... not saying I'd like a F40 or a Veyron.
If I ever could, a fully restored 1962 Lincoln Continental with suicide doors.
Suicide doors Cheesecake.
Dax Cobra 427 with a good old 427 lump. With it being relatively well priced i believe at some point this car would be attainable.
This! Worded brilliantly as always Pook
sorry will not happen again....wish I had called thread something other than 'dream cars'
once again sorry to all
Why not change the thread title to "What car do you aspire to own?"
How do you do that? thanks
Click on edit on your first post, then click on go advanced and you can do it from there.
DONE changed title....hope that's better?
Works for me
Although the "what" should technically be "What"
Is that better?
Nobody listens to you Matt
