Today i've been mostly obsessing over this

Always liked these they look just right imo
They do, it’s amazing how time passes how well these look now. They were seen as over the top and a tad MaxPower but now they look purposeful and delicate

This one sold quick, looked like a good example
I know everything is crazy now, but looking at that depresses me that I sold mine for £6,300 grumpy
I can’t remember what it was up for now, was it £20k?
Stop showing me nice stuff I can now afford.........................lol
Not sure but looking at the others for sale it seems the going rate is now £15k - £20k

So only 3 times what I sold mine for then...
Now sold.

This week I've mostly been obsessing where all the Peugeot 306's have gone. They still look good today, but I think most have all visited the great scrapyard in the sky.

I'd love to have a GTI-6

The 2009 scrappage scheme murdered loads.

There's a very interesting video by Jay Emm on YouTube in the last couple of weeks about the XK. I think it's a car that's aged very well.

Keep coming back to Morgans. A basic 1600 or 2 litre, age seems almost irrelevant, condition much more important. Safe place to put money I reckon!

I've never had the pleasure of driving one, yet find myself drawn to them...

Have you ever tried the auto?

Audi R8 mk2

Wasn’t even a thought a week ago. Told the mrs there’s a couple of good used stock around, said it’s louder than the current car and she was sold.

Yes but only briefly,I had a blast in my brother in law’s modified 4.2-it was very quick-and loud,absolutely superb.the auto box is ok,but a manual would be so much better!!
