Ford Capri Mk Iii — The car you always promised yourself. I've owned 3 capri's in my life, a 1.6, a 2.8i special and now a 2.9 twin turbo. Much money went into this old girl, transforming her from a Turbo Technics 2.8 into what she is today. Ford missed out when discontinuing this car. Tough on them!!!

Pros: Shattering performance. Drop dead looks.

Cons: Insurance

Wish I Could Afford To Have Kept Her — stunning sporty look, rugged, strong and reliable. although not.. it felt like a real muscle car i loved its solid build quality and its sleak sporty curves. you instantly turn heads when you drive past in a classic car ( even if it is because yours needs a bit off work )

Pros: strong build, sporty curves, and reliable engine

Cons: mine was not that well looked after b4 and the rust had set in

Good Classic — Best car i've had. Cost me £200 (Bargain) i was a student when i bought it and it was a cool run around. Had it years. In my garage now waiting to be restored. Can never part with it. I own the 1.6 Laser. Which means it has 5 gears for motorway use. The 1600 engine was greatly underpowered compared with its 2.0 litre counterpart. However stick a twin choke on it and get a little more accelaration. Can still spin the back out. Great fun.

Pros: Looks cool, drives well, easy to maintain, simple mechanics

Cons: Heavy car, Heavy steering, wings rust

Pure Class — What can I say? Had a lot of fun with this car, happy days! Gave it to my mate Dave who had his Astra nicked. Thats about it really. Bought it on a whim (me???) for about £100 (Im developing a pattern here) because I was bored of my fiesta. Didnt really need it, just wanted it. I think it was a 1.8 laser. It was a nightmare to park.

Pros: Heavy Handling, bad breaks and a fair bit of rust

Cons: Looked amazing and the clock worked

Great Car For Its Day — Its a marmite sort of car, but more interesting than the escort and it can be good fun in the wet.

Pros: unique style, rear wheel drive, easy and cheap to run

Cons: comedy handling in the wet, terrible brakes and its not quick off the lights
