    Mazda 323 Zxi V6 as it was the first car I owned and i loved it dearly.

    Fiat 500 as I just think they are a beautiful design.

    A Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse – no words…. just look at it!

  • Rob Newbold says:

    1) Hillman imp – 875cc short stroke engine that revs to the roof with weight over the rear wheels. My dad says they were great but I had to learn in an 850 mini.

    2) Sierra Cosworth 3dr – The iconic fast ford! My late brother had one in black and I would love to go back to those days again! My black Sierra 4×4 didn’t match it!

    3) Long nose D type – A serious sports car and the best of British and driven by the first British world champion Mike Hawthorn to beat the Mercedes at LM24.

    It was very hard to throw out Minis, Angleboxes, Capri’s, XR2’s, E types, Astons (I like DBS but I is strange) and GT40’s to provide this answer!

  • Ian Leedham says:

    1. Triumph Stag – V8 soft top, Gorgeous!
