@Nigelp I’ve never had a Vtec and wish I had. Did have a civic but it had carbs :biggrin:

Great engines i had a legend with the 3.5 on an s reg and 2 of the rare 3.0 accord coupes. I got all 3 for 1800 quid. And I prefered the legend to the s class merc i got. It was only £825 off a car lot in sheffield, the seller was an arthur daly clone in a boiler suit with tattos and one eye. A really honest bloke "fresh out of strange ways and just trying to make a honest quid mate"...in his words.

Even the cheap ones are going for silly money and you’d need to be careful they were rust buckets and these days some parts are hard to come by. I’ve had loads of Capris over the years. I had a couple of 2.8’s, I gave one of them away to my stepdaughters lad for nothing.

:huh:
 

Male hooker or a bit of tax free money laundering ???

Ha! He claimed that he would spend more on a good meal than what the car was worth. He’d just bought a brand new Jag and clearly lived in a different world to me.

Bloody hell, last time I looked you could get one like that for £20k - what happened!!

Edit: There's one on Ebay for £7k thats more like it :laughing2dw:

On having a further look a few of them here are listed as sold. I know you don’t know the actual selling price but even so

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/list/21/capri+280+brooklands/

If your even remotely interested in the £65K one a quick search and it is talked about in a few threads in the Pistonheads forums.

Personally if I had £65K and wanted a proper 2 door GT coupe I’d throw some money at a Ferrari or maybe a Maserati or even a Porsche 928. A world of difference and some change to spare.

Im 27 and started driving in 2010, so unfortunately I've missed the opportunity to own some of these beauties... Sadly, most likely never will now with the way things are going with prices and the impending demise of the ICE.

But anyway...

2004 Renault Clio 1.2

Mk4 Golf 1.4

Mk2 Golf GTi 16v (still own this one)

Mk4 Golf GTi 1.8T

2002 BMW E46 330ci Clubsport (loved this car in the lovely Estoril blue, slightly lighter than the current Estoril they use)

1993 Toyota Soarer V8 (sounded nuts, pure JDM import cool factor [emoji41] and the amount of tech in there was ridiculous for the time)

2008 Mercedes CLS 350 CGI (sounded great, lovely to waft along in, but it necked petrol like nobody's business)

2006 BMW Z4M (still own it, and hopefully will for a long time yet, great car)

2002 Seat Leon 1.9 TDi (recent purchase to be used as a work horse to save driving the Beemer or Golf everywhere, now I have a longer commute into work. Other than that, a terrible car [emoji23])

Clearly I'm not worried by age or a second hand bargain, but my heart is definitely with older cars.
Some pictures of the more recent ones.

Looking at the crazy money some 911 Turbos are going for in recent years I’ll bet you wished you had tucked a few of them away in a shed.

Been driving since 2015..

1994 Mini Cooper 1275 - still own it, currently having nut and bolt rebuild (accidentally bought a supercharger to bolt onto the original engine :thumbs_up:)

2002 MK4 Golf 1.6 - cheapest motoring I've had, great cars

2007 Saab 9-5 Aero Saloon - Absolutely the best value for money in regards to luxury and power, fantastic car

2001 Saab 9-5 Aero Estate - Bought as a project, got it roadworthy spent too much money and sold it on for a loss :laugh:

2005 Mk5 Golf 2.0 Petrol - Bit better on fuel than the Saab was, and needed to save a bit of money due to recently getting a mortgage

 

Hopefully I'll get something a bit nicer in a couple of years time once the moneypit Mini is on the road

I might have just added a Volkswagen Golf Mk3 GTI Anniversary to the list... another project :whistle::whistle:

I’ve had access to literally 100’s of cars over many years when I worked in the motor trade and a Mk2 Golf GTI was one of the very few cars that I really bonded with. I literally stole it for about 6 months until someone remembered that it existed.:laugh:

I almost bought a Mk2 GTI a couple of years ago, sometimes I wish I had as it was a nice one but at the time it was going to be a daily and I didn't want to ruin a genuine rust free car by doing 10k+ miles per year in it, they're great cars though :thumbs_up:

1. Ford Escort Mk1 (XJB 727H)

2. Fiat 127 (PVO 849X)

3. Fiat Uno (A170 NLH)

4. Vauxhall Cavalier (piece of crap given back to garage)

5. Mitsubishi Lancer - old mans version (F525 HLH)

6. VW Type2 (cant remember)

7. MX6 (H8 DBD)

8. Landrover Discovery (W803 YAN)

9. Ford Focus (H8 DBD)

10. Honda CRV (LG09***)

10 no cars in 38yrs, not many at all really as I tend to keep all of them until they die and have to be scrapped. The most expensive was the Discovery at £17k and only the Fiat 127 was brought on finance all the others were cash purchases. 

Only ever pulled in the Escort when a new driver, the Disco because a lot were being nicked ( they were just checking m'lud - a rear light was out too) and the MX6 for doing 110mph on the A3 and apparently 115mph chasing a police dog van on the M25 (what a cock that copper was!!!) 

The only points I have ever received whilst driving was actually for being parked too close to pedestrian lights without Zig Zag lines in a work van!!!

I had at least a dozen Mk1 and Mk2 Golfs and Golf GTI's over the years, a fairly rare Mk2 16v Jetta and I even bought a Mk2 Jetta just to get the front grill and lights for one of the Golf GTI's. 

Great cars, I drove one Mk2 to Prague and back and it never missed a beat. A cut above Ford XR's and Vauxhall Nova/Astra GTE's of the time

:)

 

 

This is the last Mk2 I had, it was a bit of a boy racer and I put it back to something more standard.

My first car was a Jaguar 1.5 litre 1947. I was 15 at the time and the car was in running order. I paid £15 for it. 

When my Dad found out he towed it down the scrapyard to teach me a lesson (it was a better car than his).

I can't recall whether I posted on this thread some time ago or not, but I've owned the following since passing my test in 1976:

Vauxhall Viva

Hillman Hunter

Claud Butler Majestic Tourer: 7 year gap in car ownership because Thatcher put the mortgage rate up to 15% and I couldn't afford one.

Morris Marina

109" LR Safari, Fiesta S, Another Fiesta S

Vauxhall Astra diesel

Peugeot 406

Vauxhall Astra LPG, Rover 405

Toyota Prius

Nissan Leaf 24kWh

Nissan Leaf 30kWh

VW e-Golf

Since driving my first EV in 2014 I swore I never go back to dinojuice. In the early days, the battery/range was so small that we were always hunting around for charging points, but with the Golf, we now find on a long drive that the range is much greater (130 miles at least unless the weather is really crap) and our bladders fill up before the battery empties, so we just stop at services to go to the loo or have a coffee or meal, and the car charges up at the same time. Of course, since lockdown we've hardly been anywhere. That Golf is nearly 2 years old and the technology is improving all the time.

Of course, all car are evil and I'd much rather be riding my bike! ;)
