My j-reg 205gti in metallic green, sitting on Konis with a custom exhaust & optional extra alloys.
Was literally a little go-kart, so responsive through the twisty's .

Quickest was my 313/300 Scoob but for fun (rose tinted specs) was my 2nd Nova SR. Lowered running 14's with a PCS exhaust - complete hoot

Most fun: Integrale Evo I (in Blu Madras )

All the raving by the mags about the handling and steering feel is true! Incredible.
Really, REALLY miss her.

And 5 GT turbo and 205 GTI 1.9. Even the Phase 1 Clio 16V was groovy.


Fastest: My current STi 5 4-door running 384/349.

Most outrageous was my Wife's Mini GP. All pops and crackles on gear changes / overrun and a lot of fun in the twisties.

Fastest has to be the Forester STi, no one expects it to go like it does and 330/330 seems to suit it really well. It's a hoot coming off slip roads and round abouts.

Our old legacy GTB (BG5), most folk have no idea what they are, they're very reliable and ultra practical, acceleration in 3rd/4th from 90 to 130 once the 2nd turbo kicks in is incredible.
My STi3 is much quicker off the mark, but they attract too much attention and you can only have fun in short bursts.

Ah yes on those 'private roads' which are dead straight and have a perfect surface which car enthusiasts always seem to have access to?

A couple of mods to the carb jets and it made 140 bhp on the rollers. That was fun. Also a Renault 5 GT turbo with a boost valve fitted, about 150 Bhp. Steve.

But the scariest/most fun car I've had was a Stuart Taylor with a ZX12 Kawasaki bike engine. It wanted to kill me pretty much every time I took it out

this was my mums car and it was sooooo much fun to drive



driving it over 95mph took real ***** as you felt every bump due to the non existent suspension and lack of power steering

broke her heart when she had to sell it (due to her ill health) as she had only ever owned minis her entire life

still it went to an enthusiast so there were some happy tears
