Tr7, The Ultimate 80's Icon — The ultimate 80's icon. American crash-protection legislation forced the designers to adopt huge plastic bumpers, so the "wedge" was born. Pop-up lights, tartan cloth seats and, for the ultimate thrill, a V8 in the TR8 guise. Build quality issues plagued the early Speke-built cars as industrial action took hold, but later cars are solid and reliable.

Pros: Bold design, retro-cool

Cons: Early cars can suffer build-quality issues.

Rover V8 Engine: The Car It Should Have Been! — I have owned it for 12 years and still love it. It's a handful, but the acceleration and exhiliration are amazing.

Pros: Unique

Cons: Rust!!!
