Memory Lane: Post up your old car pics here

Recommended Posts

My last car I cared about....

440boot.jpg

 

440sidelower.jpg

 

440frontmodnats04plate.jpg

 

Then had the wheels powder coated

 

rearside.jpg

 

Then it was stolen when I was burgled :rant:

 

Got it back, minus the wheels. I already had the Zed at that point though.

Some very nice pics there mate !

Think everyone in the Universe has either owned borrowed or scrapped a Corsa in their life - even we had one - N reg in that weird - is it blue or is it purple colour! :wacko:

 

Like the wheels on the golf B)

 

Weird coincidence last night? I was sat in The Bengal Dynasty in Queensferry on a mates leaving doo just happen to glance out of the window and my old van drives past! B) Still looks good and complete with the original dints :yahoo: That was 4 years ago I gave that away to mate at work (who then sold it the other year for spares!) :dry:

You're kidding!? That's what mine was!! Wasn't sure at first, but loved it against the nice hyper silver alloys and a mesh grille, not a common colour and it stood out.

 

Thanks for the 'much love' on the Golf; it will be sadly missed.... but I s'pose i can make do with the zed :lol:

 

Love the Van too - I absolutley WILL own a VeeDub van one day, preferably a splitty but hey, a dub van's a dub van!

No, it wasn't. Luckily I took all the equipment out before it was stolen.

 

As for a stealth beast, unfortunately not! It was a 1.9TD that had a good 150 kilos of ICE and other gadgets in it. It might have got going down hill but that was it! :lol: It was mainly dry weather cornering that it just stuck. Huge fun with it. I couldn't have anyone in the back or it was scraping time but it did get some looks and was in amazing condition. :)

Some great stories and pictures there, damn shame what happened to that Cobra. :scare:

 

Only a little history, but here it is anyway. Don't have pic's handy, so googled some similar. Started off with a £350 purchase of this powerhouse :p , a Daewoo Espero:

 

http://www.tucarro.com.co/daewoo-TCMOD- ... go-826.jpg

 

Ran pretty well for a year before a few issues with ABS and suspension convinced me to buy something else:

Current car, probably paid over the odds for it by a margin, but it has been rock solid so far - leaving me free to save up for a 350z, in the not too distant future... :thumbs:

The espero was a MkII cavi in drag and the other car daewoo launched at the same time (when you bought them from halfords) was a MkII Astra in a shellsuit.

I was about to start a new thread regarding this, but I found this so i'll add to it. Here's my 98 Ford fiesta, passed on through the family to me in a lovely burgundy colour. Bit of a boy racer in my youth, but I was more in it for the speed than looks (with the Zed you get the best of both worlds :D ) Started of with just an exhaust system fitted to it and it kind of spiralled/snowballed out of control. Found a company called Pumaspeed and the rest was history. Put in a 1.7 puma engine with racing puma engine management with uprated cams. full milltek 4-2-1 stainless manifold with decat pipe exhaust system. Racing puma front seats (very expensive!) Was eventually gonna sort the bodywork out but one day while i was playing about looking for insurance quotes, I found that i could get insured cheaper on a 350z than i could with my fiesta :lol: so ended up selling it unfinished, wish i kept in touch with the new owner to see how it got on:

And then I needed more speed and rear wheel drive (Stage 3 - 350bhp :teeth:)

And then the Zed came along, happy days :D

Hey some nice pictures and stories folks glad this thread is still going strong! :thumbs:

 

Particularly love that old 78 Polo - mint! I saw a similar coloured Mk1 Golf locally a few years ago thinking it was looked after really well as it was pristine then I discovered it was the Golf Citi from South Africa where they still make them so it was brand new! :blush:

 

What is it about early 90's and burgendy coloured cars eh? I had a Mk3 cavalier in the same colour! :wacko:

 

Hmm did that fiesta come with those blue seats from Ford ?? I think not :lol:

 

Think they only made those Honda's in that colour green and nothing else - mate had the same one I think!! The Nissan looks cool btw - yet another roling road shot - these are getting common! B)

 

Erm so you like MR2 Mk1's Ollie?? I am guessing there?? I love them B) - my mate still has his red one - he still hankers after a Mica Blue targa - but his is a boggo red one - its presently resting awaiting a slight freshen up on the paintwork but its mint and goes like stink! He and in particular that car got me into Jap stuff. I've never looked back ,glad I did'nt otherwise would'nt have found this cool group of internet weirdos I love wasting so much of my time with! :lol::clap::drunk::snack:

 

Keep the pictures and stories rolling folks lot of new members on the forum recently get those Black and White Glass slides scanned in folks! :lol:
