Icon — A classic that every petrolhead should own at some point, excellent handling good performance and looks that only an Italian could draw. An icon that will appeal to the young and old and despite the lions best efforts to take the crown with the 205.

Pros: Retro Cool GTi

Cons: Rust

Vw Golf — Bought this as a stop gap, a friends mum was selling it cheap, I needed a car........ Wasnt too bad, very slow but very well built. I put a "GTi" style grille on it (with the driving lamps) which made it look better. While I was parked outside the pub, a dealer left a note on it offering me £300 more than I paid for it, so off it went!

Pros: well built

Cons: slow, bit cramped inside

Fantastic Car, So Much Fun To Drive — Despite it's lack of speed and braking power, even with sloppy old suspension, you can really throw it round corners. It is so much fun blipping the throttle through the gears hearing that little carby 1600 sing. Being such a cheeky little car, people let you zip through traffic squeezing into gaps no other cars can. When you have people approach you in car parks and tell you about one they used to own (usually older people), how much they loved it and how they regret getting rid of it, you realise that owning an old VW really is something special. I dont think I'll ever part with it.

Pros: Fantastic handling, many parts up to Golf IV are interchangable, 1600's are pretty bulletproof, cheap at the pumps, the smile you wear when you drive it.

Cons: Parts are sometimes hard to source, incredibly slow wipers, gearshift is pretty vague, lack of 5th gear in mine. Only 250kms to a tank.
