Another bizzarre thread!

What car do you have a strange desire to own, but can't offhand think why?

Me? Vauxhall Calibra 16v.

I remember sitting in a new one at a Vauxhall dealers as an impressionable youth, and vowing that one day, it would be mine, oh yes... the feeling's never really gone away.

I just LOVE bizarre threads



ive always hankered after a FIAT Strada 130TC Abarth............but rust and horrendous parts prices put me off tracking one down........then again easier said than done....only 700 UK supplied ones between 84 and 87

As a 15/16 year old, I drooled over Escort XR3i, sort of got one later, Orion 1.6i Ghia.

I still quite fancy a Escort RS turbo

Quite a list:

Citroen DS, Mark 2 Jag, Abarth tuned Fiat 500, Caterham, hot rodded Ex GPO Morris Minor van, swb Land Rover Defender with all the trimmings i.e roof mounted light rack, bull bars, huge wheels - ironically the ultimate town car, what taxi or white van driver is going to mess with one of those?, Bentley Continental S2 and a few others to numerous to list as well.

Personally if I had the garage space, and a six figure sum to spend on a car, I would rather spread the money out and have a fleet like the above, than just have one very expensive car (and it's depreciation!) to worry about :D

Fiat 500 (the original one) or 1960's Mercedes-Benz 600 Grosser.

Smart Fourtwo, Toyota Aygo/Pug 107/Cit C1, Audi A2.

There, it's not a secret any more...

For me, it's got to be a Dino. IMHO still the best looking car ever made.

ohhh yes - Integrale Evo, orig mini Cooper (cream with black roof and some some period "Downtown" tuning parts please), i considered a Golf Rallye for my winter car, but the missus said it looked too "boy racer".
