    Cars

    I've been involved with the modified cars / Rally car scene for a time.

    The car that is my favourite is the Opel Manta

    wonderful car. RWD with torque and so easy to 4 wheel drift lazily

    I once got to drive the Mattig version (the one with the rectangular scirocco lights), at the time it was the only car to share the same tyres as the Lambo Countach.

    still have a few of them in my possession

    (M400rep, 2.2 sprint car GT/E H/B, GTE Exclusive)

    What's your favourite car?

    I am in the midst of various car projects at the mo. I have to start up my son's Sprint car tomorrow and move it out so I can work on my Capri.

    :D I can't wait , I'd go down to the shed now, but I'd wake the dead with that sound :D.

    I once sat in one of these and as the salesman leaned and strained ever closer to the window, I never heard a word he said, all I could hear was the greatest rumble on idle I'd ever heard

    now with that outa the way, :D

    this clip reminds me of a time when I was overtaking a mate of mine driving a 205 and me in a 4AGE GT Corolla, a friend wound down my passenger window and started throwing my sandwidges at his windscreen :D lol

    all the best

    I love concept cars, esp those coming from Chrysler. Classic Rolls are among others that I like.
