Are you Canadian? I don't know much about G1's and G2's... what's the process of getting your license over there?

In the UK, we just have to sit a theory test, then do our practical test. Pretty simple, but a lot of people still mess up. ;P

Wow, things have been quiet around here.

Anyway new ugly car. This one pains me a little, because I loved the first one.

BUT the sheer ugliness of the 2nd generation Hyundai Coupé is unforgivable. Look at it!

Heres a classic from rover, The SD1, it may be unreliable, but the rover v8 has the best home in one of these :D

Anyone agree?

Welcome! I'll add your name to the memberlist.

Could I ask you a favour? Would you mind working on your post length a bit? I don't mean I want you writing massive paragraphs, but at the same time I'd like to avoid one or two line posts.

To be honest I never liked Rover, although I did get a laugh from watching one break down on the way out of the dealership! It was a new one as well!

I never used to like Rovers either, even as a little kid I knew they were the type of car that old farts drove, then I came across my current car. I was only going to use it for a few months or so untill I could afford something better so because I was skint i bought a Rover Metro gti off a friend for £100 pounds.

This is the best car i've ever owned! Yes its a rover, yes from certain angles it looks a bit crap, there's a bit of rust and peridocally i have to replace some essintial component ( this is a £100 quid car remember) but it drives like a dream, handels superbly and because its a fairly big engine (1.4 twin cam with a multi point injection system) it can pull 120MPH with ease ( once i get that wheel bearing fixed it will probably push 130) if im carefull the econemys not that bad either.

Fair enough. All you really need is some fluffy dice and a feather boa and you'd totally look the part driving that bad boy around, though.

I've driven a small car for the past couple of years, which is essential when parking is a problem. When my car was in the garage recently getting repaired, they gave me a courtesy car which was slightly larger, and it made parking that extra bit difficult.

Well if parking and mobility is an issue for you, I think Jeremy Clarkson has discovered the future of motoring, and it comes from the 1960's...

Yeah, I've seen that Top Gear. It's an amusing little car.

I know the Bugatti Veyron is really famous now, and nearly everyone likes it, but for me, being a classic car lover, I like Bugatti's EB110 better, the looks are love or hate, (for me its love!) and the v12 beast can pull off 213mph, better than a lot of supercars today, 4wd, so brilliant handling, its just a great car that time forgot.

I remember that car. Really don't understand how it flopped though. It had all the right ingredients to be a great supercar and ended up bankrupting Bugatti. It had one animal of an engine though. A 6.0, 5 valves per cylinder, quad cam, quad turbo V12. Yet it only produced 600bhp...

Also, 800 posts ^^

about the eb110, how come its not on the official top ten fastest cars, coz it does 213mph, which is more than some of the cars on the list.

Err no.

Layland were crap, Layland were what you got if you took crap and distilled it down using crap filtering to create the essence of crap. Rover who came after BL were marginally better as they actually made cars that people wanted to drive, ocassionally. The sad thing is that just before Rover went under they actually made a decent car, the Rover 75 which even Top Gear liked. Leyland went down to two reasons; 1. the workforce spent almost as much time on strike as they did working. 2. the build quality on most Leyland vehicles was on par with an old skoda or lada.

On a totally unrelated note what do you lot think of the new Nissan GTR . I want one!

Hmm, i think skyline have got worse over the years, (i no its not called a skyline anymore but it essentially is one) the only skylines i like were the 1970 to early '90's skylines, (and the 1963 one) ok i admit the new ones very good but, me being a classic car lover, i like the early skylines.

anyway moving on, who here likes the 1970 plymouth superbird?

They made it more streamlined and gave it curves! I second that emotion /\

Ouch man, isn't that a little harsh? I mean it might not be a beauty to look at, but a melted Skyline? Can't say that I agree.

It was a pretty good engine, which makes it a pity that the Rovers they were in were so unreliable. Kinda let the engine itself down in a way.

Also, page 10 :)
