Until recently I drove a red Triumph TR6 - 1969 - now it sits in the garage waiting for petrol prices to lower as it only does 20mpg :eek::eek:
Bought the car in 1978 and had a complete restoration on it - it is beautiful but too expensive to drive at the moment unless I win the lottery.

I know that problem...1982 Porsche 924 @ 20mpg currently sat on the drive due to fuel costs. Using my little motorbike instead
:)

My 1982 Porsche 924 is off the road most of the time due to fuel prices... my little motorbike is much more efficient!!!

I love cars, im a petrol head, i used to go out "crusing" when i first past my driving test 11 years ago. Stopped 7 years ago when i met my boyfriend as it wasnt his cup of tea.

i bought my dream car in july 2008 but had to sell it last september after losing my job and it was the only thing i owned which was worth money and that would help me pay for things for a few months.

I did own a Mazda 323 GTR, this is her



Not to everyones taste, but very much to mine. I had the only one in the north east. Its a jap import. 240bhp standard unfortuantely didnt get round to putting mine on the rolling road but hoped she'd have around the 260bhp mark. Really fast, 4wd, turbo, so much fun to drive...miss it so much. would have another if i had the money.

not good as a family car though, wasnt great trying to get my daughter in and out when she was first born.

ive got a 2007 focus ST3 now running about 300bhp with 400lbft of torque :)
it has collins stage 2 map
mongoose 3" downpipe
3" decat
airtec front mount intercooler
lowered 30mm on ford approved eibach springs
just need to get a closed induction kit and the catback for the exhaust to make it up to about 330bhp and upgrade the clutch and flywheel to the RS type (£750:cry:)
i get on average about 19mpg around town :cry: but about 32mpg on a long run
but it goes like an absolute rocket now so different from standard

Myself and the husband are both petrol heads! We both have R33 GTS Nissan Skylines. They are both white, and 2.5 turbo. They are lots of fun especially when both out together :)
