    Fiat Punto 2001 1.2 - my first purchase spent £3k on it from my placement money ended up giving it to my younger brother and someone stole it from him and drove it into a road of cars

    Fiat Punto 1994 1.4 - blue, alloys, lots of memories, my first 3 door, loved it

    Saab 95 Aero 2000 2.3 - Oh man i loved this car only had it for six months but my oh my, my first car toy, 0-60 6.5 secs 230bhp, leather interior, the full works, 17mpg!, The best cup holder in the world, will definately be buying another Saab

    Current Car Vauxhall Astra 2001 Silver 1.8 SRi with full irmscher bodykit - looks nice, 40mpg, and does the job really and ultra reliable so far
    How can you say you love cars then list all those??

    You do know that all Saab's are now Vauxhall's in drag?

    I know the cars i listed were not exactly beasts, i meant i love cars in general!

    Yeah GM owned Saab and the chassis and various parts of the 95 were taken from the Vectra.

    if im correct the engine was build by Saab techs though

    I think Saab were going to be sold to Koenigsegg?

    Don't forget the lotus carlton and the vx220 were vauxhalls as well!

    The chasis starts out as a basic Vauhall but is then strengthened by SAAB

    The SAAB version of the engine has balancers to smooth it out, in this case I think of it as as a SAAB engine and Vauxhall leave a few bits out

    Mines a SAAB 93 custom order, with Areo enginge/Mitsibushi turbo in a SE spec interior and badged as an SE

    The girlfriend has SAAB 900 2.3SE Metalic Purple convertable often with matching nail varnish and hair.

    I didn't get it new so I'm not certain why the first owner did it that way, possibly insurance differences as when I got it they never seemed quite sure where to put it in their schemes. Another possibility is they had 3 older children, as the SE interior is slightly more 5 person freindly than the Aero one.

    Personaly I like it like that way because, as far as Master J. Rider is concerned, there's nothing to show it's anything other than a 135bph family car.

    Well this morning I crashed my 320D Touring. Not so much totalled it but damaged all along the passenger side.

    Driving out of a garage after filling up with diesel and there is a huge crunch. Stop, get out to see my car had scraped against a bollard so low down that no way was i going to see it. I'm nopt amused.

    :-(

    I doubt I can claim against the garage because they will say I should have seen it.

    Mine brings a smile to my face and the requirement for new boxers everytime I take this out almost.

    Nissan 200sx S14, full Apex exhaust, Walbro pump, colder plugs, 216Bhp 210tourque all to the rear wheels in something that weights less than a crisp packet
