Default Car you have had most fun in. Ever

Driven loads of cars. Like all of you. From my current Skoda vrs (love it )to a 911

Loved most things I've driven but never had more fun ever than in the 'classic' mini cooper-old shape I had (and like an eejut sold), not the BMW one.A real one

Just everything that was a joy about driving. No PAS, cornered and turned on a sixpence. Was probably slow as heck but felt like a rocketship. Just literally was smile a mile

Might be rose tinted specs time but does any car stick in your mind? And have to be honest my MX5 never did it for me. So bloody slow it pained me

Ford Ka rally car was an absolute hoot to drive, road car wise, I'm going to go for a 1.9 205 GTI. That was the first proper quick car I'd owned.

In more recent times, the C63 I had was nuts, you nearly celebrated every time you reached your destination. It was incredibly tail happy.
The current E63 in contrast delivers fun in a different way.

I've driven lots of high HP cars, but nothing compares to the fun I had in my Mk1 1.6 MX5. Such a nimble little thing, and even though you're not going anywhere quickly - it felt great to hammer it round.

Also enjoyed my Mk5 Zetec S Fiesta when I was a mere youth - loved it to bits.

205 GTi Turbo Technics running about 200bhp. Although my Bug is the car that I've done the most miles in and is the car that I've been able to thrash about and take the biggest liberties in....
