    Im currently looking at next spring/summers weekend toy and the Smart Brabus has been on my list for a few years and wondered if anyone here has had one or still owns one,ok they are not eveyones cuppa but after chatting to GBS (Great british sportscars) about their lotus 7 lookalike it looks...
  2. Introduce Yourself
    With a second child imminent, my wife told me I should get a grown up car! Will miss the Roadster - lots of fun, but my new Alfa is beautiful to drive and look at. 2.2 JTS, black with biscuit (?) leather interior. The leather is a bit bright but kind of suits the car. Thanks for all the posters...

    On my way home today about to get onto the R21 at Elephant Road (for those fimiliar to Pretoria its close to the off ramp onto Hans Strydom) I spot a Abarth 500 in the left lane.. So I head towards it.. In the fast lane there is a Mini Roadster JCW.. The Abarth was black with red decals and...

    This is the top gong for hot rods in the US, dished out each year at the Grand National Roadster Show. The name of the show is something of a misnomer because it isn't just roadsters. However, the winning car will be one. Take your pic. You can read a bit more about the...

    There is a fella on pistonheads who is selling his Z3 M Roadster and wants to part exchange for a 156 GTA............... I guess the Z3 would be quicker

    A few of the cars on display at this weekend's Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona. I've shamelessly nicked these from Retro Rides who, in turn, shamelessly nicked them from SoCal Car Culture - Car Shows - Cruise Nights - Photos. If anyone was wondering what to get me for my birthday...

    Right, prompted by a few triggers (workmate interested in one, RSK getting one and me thinking about changing my car), i have a question about MX5s. From memory, a Eunos Roadster is a Japan-market only car. Some made it to the UK, and some have been re-badged Mazda MX5. These cars are grey...

    The missus wants to get a little roadster jobby next year, and I've always hated the idea as, well, I'm not really a roadster fan, shock horror! :eek: What with the 156's, Galants, Jags etc I've had, you'd have thought I'd have had a Roadster thrown into the mix somewhere. :lol: Roadsters and...

    Guy's, What with it nearly approaching summer I've been thinking about getting myself a convertible for a laugh. I've been looking toward BMW 2.8 Z3's, Toyota VVTi MR2's and VVC MGF's. Now, they all kick out similar performance stats, but the one I'm most interested in is the little MGF...

    OK, we have spent the last few weeks testing various British Weather mid-life-crisis-mobiles and think we have narrowed down the field somewhat. Problem is we haven't, only the MR2 has gone because everything involved shunting the seat back and forwards. We have had a go in all the following...

    Thanks to a keen eyed girlfriend she spotted the limited edition Zonda F in the local pub car park! Must have been a meeting of Ferrari guys as there were a few of those about too. Only had two minutes to take a few pictures. By the time I got back with the camera he had shut the engine...
