1989 110 Csw V8 — It's a V8, so it makes me smile every time I start it up. That is worth a lot to me. It runs on lpg so it isn't much less economical than my wife's td4 freelander. But it comes with all the inherent problems of a 110 - draughty, rattly, slow, leaky, uncomfortable, ridiculous and I love it. It tows like a dream and, because I do all the work on it myself, it is a cheap car to own. Nine seat belts and a full length roof rack make it usefully versatile. Mostly original (rare for its age) including all paintwork and interior. Not bad for a 23-year-old truck.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's the ultimate all-round capable car.

Cons: I just wish I could get it up to decent mileage.

V8 90 — V8 Offroad perfect, will not get stuck, might break down....but who cares when your havin this much fun. People against 4x4's suck and should get of the "green" boat and enjoy a bit of V8 pleasure. Land rovers rule.

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

Pros: V8 and Big wheels

Cons: Drinks more than me
