What Other 'interesting' Vehicles Do You Own..?

Recommended Posts

My 205 shares garage space with these - let's see what else you've got;

'93 - but it wears the colours from '90.

as well as a 205 that I haven't got any recent pictures of, got these two.

 

not sure the BMW classes as interesting, its a late 93 525 TDS Auto sat on Alpina 535i springs and dampers (Bilstein B8)

 

The ZX has its project thread.

I've had a few other cars over the years at the same time as the 205, but the only other car currently is a Mk1 Focus RS with lots of custom carbon fibre trim inside & out, a forged 400+bhp/torque engine with GT28 turbo, running standalone Autronic SM4 management. It was one of the first cars in the UK to run that power & be converted to standalone back in 2007 by SCC Performance.

 

I just need to get the time & money together to get it back on the road, but seem to find myself diverting it into the 205 instead (not necessarily a bad thing that however ;) )

 

Couple of pics:

Not very interesting at the moment for me - very grey! 208 GTi for her and an XC90 for me at the moment. I have to say, I really like the 208 - it's pretty quick for what it is, rides nicely and seems pretty well put together. Was also a bit of bargain as it was one of the last pre-facelift ones, so was heavily discounted. Volvo is a complete antithesis to everything I love about the 205. It does have the most comfortable seats of any car I've ever had, and an awesome B&W sound system though!

I do like a nice Mk1 Focus RS and am rather liking the C20 though!

Along with 3 205's I've got 2 mk2 RS200's, both full on nut and bolt resto's, unfortunately I recently had to sell my z31 300zx turbo when I moved back home from Vancouver, that was great car!

Cool thread. Some nice 'other' cars here.

 

I'm a bit of a car nut. My 205 shares the garage with the following:

 

C30 T5-R. Great cruiser - my wife's car.

 

16CD6675-7768-41DE-BC54-B7B7E44CF80E.jpg

 

Lotus Elise Sport 111 - completely raw like the 205. No power steering, no power brakes, no ABS etc etc. Love it.

 

43495013-0839-481E-AE8E-FDD5685FF548.jpg

 

1966 Volvo 122S - was my grandpas car. Painted it a few years ago, but love putting around in it on the weekends.

These are my other cars: an E61 (525i), which I bought as a load lugging runabout, complete with the odd ding. It's a very competent car, but I haven't gelled with it - it replaced a V70 T5. My other car is an AM Vantage V8, which I've had for 4 years now...an ownership record!

Aston wins for me, so far...

 

My other interesting car is a Maserati 3200GT, which I adore, despite raping me every few months.

Oh and a £750 Alfa 156 Selespeed Sportwagon, which I bought for a laugh.

That 3200 is almost the same as my old one! Manual or auto? Mine was an 02 plate manual (grigio alfieri & black). Changed it for a red AC. Awesome cars.

Mine is a 2000 auto, I didn't fancy the hassle or the expense of the clutch with my first Maserati.

My interior is grey and I would have preferred black, there aren't that many around.

 

It is awesome and when those turbos kick in, all hell breaks loose.

 

My firms company car policy might mean I have to sell it soon though :-(

Very Jealous. My Step dad had an interceptor I can still remember the bright white interior and that leather smell!

 

Afraid mine are lack luster (and dirtier!) in comparison.
