    Shamelessly nicked from another forum, but take a look at that soft top - looks like a tent put up by someone half cut

    To be honest..............

    If I had a spare grand and a half, I'd buy it just for weekend driving!

    Had a Calibra before, so I know how nice they are to drive....and that would deffo turn a few heads!

    Calibra... nice.. drive...

    My first car was a calibra, omg what a boat! Under steer galore and then when you regained grip the back end would swing side to side like a capri on ice! I did love the size of it mind. 4 full sized adults in it no problem, not like my mr2 lol

    I particularly like the rear "portholes" in the soft top.

    I love the Calibra and was lucky enough to drive an SR6 for a day when I was around 20. It might have been a Cav in a skirt but I liked it never-the-less and it was very nice to drive.

    That shed though - tsk tsk! Worst part of it all, aside from the "lifted from an MGB" lid, is that bloody Alfa grill - the front of a Calibra was my favourite look in a car, all mean and slim looking. Then they slap that thing on it - nnngh! No self respecting person want's anything remotely Alfa related attached to anything else... even a Vauxhall!

    Let me make one thing clear..............

    I LOVED my Calibra, understeer and all!

    I'd had a Capri, back in the day, and loved the way that that car drove. The Calibra was very similar. Throwing it into a bend and tearing out onto a straight was fantastic! It had power galore, and was brilliant to drive.....Much like the Capri!

    No....it's not a Ferrari/Porsche/Lambo?maserati, but it had lots of fun on a budget, and if you can find that, then you're doing well!

    Aye, if you can find one. I saw one the other week for the first time in what seems years. Was in really good condition too. I wish they would make cars that looked nice again, even the cav was a good looking car and that was just a "boring" cheap family car.
    It would seem the last few years have killed off most How Many Left?
