Well lads, I'm off to France for a week. I'll be sure to report any car-related mishaps or anything like that when I get back.
I look forward to it. On that note, who do you think are the best and worst French manufacturers?

I don't know where you're from, but here in California, I don't think I've ever seen a French car before. So, from my lack of experiences with French automakers, I'd say there is no such thing as the "best" French car Manufacturer.

Sup guys, I'm here at the airport waiting for my flight to be called. Looks like it's all quiet on the Western front around here, so to speak.

Really, none at all? Thats strange. I don't mind Citroen too much, but I can't say that I have much love for Peugeot.

Hope you have a good flight.

Yeah, here in America I don't think that there are any French automakers here in America.

Meh, don't like French cars. Partly because they're made by cheese eating surrender monkeys. In all fairness though the best one would have to be Citroen, Renault and Peugeot. Citroen and Peugeot make fairly normal but nice looking cars, whereas Renault mostly like making manic hatchbacks. You should see the hot version of the Clio (their smallest car). It's bloody insane...

You'll never see me in one though, bloody frogs :P

I'm a fan of classic cars, personally. My dream car is the Jaguar XK 140 - it's just so beautiful. If I ever get rich, I'm buying one.

French tanks have six gears, 5 reverse, and one forward in case they are ever attacked from behind

Classic cars are awesome. My favs would have to be the E-Type Jaguar, Aston Martin DB5 and the Mustang GT390. I think though if you make the decision and buy one it's definitely worth modernising it. For starters, their handling by todays standards is pretty crap. In fact, pretty much all working parts will need upgrading or completely new parts altogether.

For example there's companies in England that specialises in classic Astons and Jags. £80,000 - £120,000+ is a lot of money but for that they'll completely overhaul it and you'll end up with something that drives and goes as well as it looks. They can also add things like sat nav and proper air con (in the DB5 the sat nav is hidden in the dashboard just like in James Bond).

With the Mustang, you'll obviously want it in the same uber dark green as the car from Bullitt, have the handling sorted out and up the power. But, you definitely won't want to bother with any sound proofing or a stereo. That snarl it makes is just too awesome...

Bleh, I need to stop with all the droning. Me liking Top Gear too much is what the problem is.

I don't see the problem in liking Top Gear too much. In fact, that's probably a good thing considering you're in the Car Enthusiasts Club haha.

Some people love them, some people hate them, but you have to appreciate the sheer beauty of some of them, no matter what your taste. ;P

The DB5 is nice, but in terms of Astons, I actually prefer the newer ones, like the DB9 and DBS.

If you're serious about driving it a lot, then yeah. An engine rebuild is probably the first thing to do, but either way, modernising a classic car will set you back a whole lotta cash.

Ah Zonda R, nearly there lol. Is the Novitec F430 with 2 superchargers? That has over 700bhp! Can't help thinking you're going to end up dead driving one of those. Needs a bigger wing too or it'll be all over the place.

Anyway guys, I'm in Spain for 10 days from tomorrow so I won't be on at all until the 19th. If you do see me online then it'll be Andrea364 depositing (stat whoring) for me :P

Later!

P.S. The place I'm going is called Marbella and there's a place near there called Puerto Banus. It's basically a millionaires playground and there's no end of exotic cars. You see EVERYTHING there. Eeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Might I join as well?
I grew up playing everything from Crash Team Racing to Gran Turismo. Even managed to complete the 24h Le Mans in A-spec :D

Now I'm just stuck on YouTube's drag & dyno videos.

Response to The Car Enthusiasts Club 2008-07-10 07:14:02


Ladies and gentlemen, well, maybe just gentlemen, the Barbarian is back! France went fine, weather wasn't great though.

Now, onto cars. The car we rented was a Alfa Romeo, a 159 I think, with a 1.9 litre engine along with... A TURBO!!! Oh man, was it ever sweet. Only small problem was that the car was very low down, and a bit of a bollocks to park.

Anyway, it's been pretty quiet about these parts seemingly, and I haven't seen MGSTroll around for a bit.

As for the lads who asked to join (I'm not being specific, I'm too tired/lazy to check back who it was) welcome aboard. If possible could you put the club in your sig? If you can't, no worries.

Finally, it's good to be back in Ireland I suppose. Guess I'll go to bed or something now (had to get up at 2.30 in the morning to catch the plane...)

Response to The Car Enthusiasts Club 2008-07-10 23:23:16


<3 Zondas ever since I saw them in Gran Turismo, I think.

Also, prior to the Bugatti Veyron release, it was the fastest production car on the planet? Am I right?
