Wow — POWER!! It's a fantastically retro car with the performance to match. Looks great with rally spot lights and with the 2.8 litre fuel injected model has the performance to match it's looks. Handling is a bit old but a very fun car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Cool

Cons: Old

Capri — Everyone should own one once in their lifetime - it's a cortina in drag but thats ok - sitting in one and looking out over that bonnet bulge was a great thing. Not hyper reliable but easy to fix and get bits for - had loads of laffs in this one which for £500 you cant complain about it. Recognise those big wheels from my Escort ??? Lol !!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good fun - classic

Cons: wet/snow weather nightmare - back ends went everywhere but where they should have !

Awsome — Love the sound the feel, and the overall agressive nature of the car.. Love the way people look and guess and hate or fall in love with it when they first see it.. It invokes Passion, like a true sports car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The looks, and the engine

Cons: Nothing

Not As Sporty As It Looks — I had the 1.6 Auto version which stuggled when you tried to overtake a milk float. I tried not to use the brakes when it had been raining as it drove like a dart with no flights. Do I need to say anymore. I managed to sell this car to a stupid Aussie bloke and made a profit would you believe.

Pros: Is there any

Cons: Dangerous in the wet
