Trust !!! These are true drivers cars and built like brick shit houses, yet with finesse !!! 96/97 Carrera S 993 (The only year and simply must have the wide rear arse !!!)

Practical, collectable, fits on any drive, just dont try and fit a baby seat !!!

Look closely :lol: He'll be gutted that Daddy flogged it before he could get his hands on it !!!

ive noticed a few donor cars at the start of this thread :lol:

ive been following prp 7iv as its passed through at least 5 keepers in quite a few years . ordinarily i wouldnt choose the mk2 as id have to pay tax :lol: and the na yb is a heavy thirsty lump compared to a duratec with throttle bodies and decent engine management but theres a certain rawness to prp 7iv that has always appealed . its never been a show car and never will , more likely to be found at brunters or on santa pods strip than sat in a field with speccy rally anoracks discussing its pedigree

i've always been a fan of the quattros, ever since the golden years of rallying. one group B kicked in properly it had to be the Lancia Delta S4 tho. awesome :twisted:

the only car i can remember lusting after in recent years tho is the Audi S8
i saw one in the film Ronin & just knew i had to have one :!:

went into work the next day to check the price in autocar magazine & was well & truly slapped down. £70,000 give or take for full spec :shock:
was a bit gutted to say the least :(

anyway a few years passed & somebody at work said he saw some for sale for semi sensible money, checked auto trader, made some calls went out & bought one :D
had it about 4 years now & still love it :D

unfortunately recent fuel pricing has seen any residual value evaporate so like any largeish engined car its now worth fook all :cry:

no plans on selling anyway :wink:

if anyone wants a big car ( & they are massive!) that can cause a few surprises on the road give one a look :wink:
the 360bhp V8 & 4wd gets you where you want to be quicker & probably more comfortably than any other car for the same money :wink:

Realistic car dreams at the moment are a factory spec MK2 or MK3 X-pack Capri 3.0S in silver.

Also fancied a SWB Beach Buggy, an original Rat or GP just like this one, good ones go for decent money though.

Image

Unrealistic dreams are a Lamborghini Miura and a road spec Metro V6R4.

Fulfiled a few dreams over the years though, always wanted a Mustang when i was a kid, had this 70 Mach1 a few years ago.

Image

Then i wanted a Dodge charger so i swaped the Stang for this, ended up wishing i'd kept the Stang as it was easier to drive.

Image

This is my current old skool Ford.
