Remember the good old days when you used to use easy links from half decent photo hosting sites and be able to put a little commentary against each one as you went along?

Me either, that's your lot. Bullitt 'stang was nice but after speaking the chap who put the stickers on his blue one and listening to it I'm not so impressed. Met two Alfa fans, so big wave.


Slammed Merc for Scud, slammed yank wagon for KB, fezza for Malc and no Hondas for SiEiF :p


Your nominations for 'most want to take home' would be appreciated, if only to get a bit of a convo going :D

I think the only ones there I could genuinely want to own if I was after that type are the TVR, the red 'Grale and the Lotus.

Or maybe not the Lotus, because if I was buying a Lotus anyway I suspect that I'd think it was only half the dream if it wasn't an Esprit.

There's a few. Couple of MK2 Escorts and particularly the blue MK1

Whilst a 458 is probably my third favorite looking car ever I am not a fan of Soft Top/Convertible/Spider Ferraris.
The 458 is not bad because with the roof up it is similar to the Italia. If it was an Italia then absolutely.

Oh and the the Mini.

The good old days :(

I think I'll be reviving the Photobucket rant shortly, supposedly all existing hosted pics are going to get blurred in June :HEADBANG:


PS Nice selection Steve :thumbs:


PS 2 You can (or at least you could) use IMG Tags on Flickr but it's slower as you have to select the code for each image one at s time.

I'd love a big American station wagon on air ride. Caddy and Torino also float my boat.

If that was for me then simply because the newer ones (whilst I like them) don't really float my boat.
If I could realistically afford to throw money at petrol I would not mind a new V8 Mustang for regular use but even that is not special enough for a fun car.

I knew KB would like that wagon :D

The ‘stang was a disappointment. Nice enough obliging owner, but ‘stang t-shirt, model ‘stang (same colour) on the dashboard, little number-platey thing that goes in a little recess at the front of the engine bay saying what the engine is called (Harold, I think) and “I did ‘em myself you know” horsey stickers on the rear arches. It’s his dream and who am I to judge it, we all want different things but I don’t think I want that.

Starting it up and revving it killed it for me. For a 5.0 V8 there just ain’t enough oomph.

I'm surprised you did not think sounded good. I've heard them pass me a few times and I was impressed.

I think maybe a case of expectation hyping too much. Don't get me wrong, it sounded OK, but I don't think cars sound at their best when you just sit and rev 'em and I think I was just expecting more.

Agreed. At idle my 360 sounds a bit naff. On the road approaching just 4k and beyond is sublime.
