For me there where 3...

Countach... (has to be the 25th with the spoiler, and only in red...)


Testarossa...


Those two are down to the fact my Mum bought me frames A1 pictures of them when i was 5-6 from a car boot, and they just stuck in my head!

And late on, the Mclaren F1, in black like the one i sat in at the 1996 Motorshow...


But more real life, my Dad's E28 5 Series... In this colour!


Swiftly followed by his Mk1 Mint Nova GTE... Again in this colour...

My mum had one of these for a few years when I was younger, this colour and all. Had front buckets, an insane system, and think it was a little tuned aswell - yes, my mum's awesome lol, and this is probably where my love of boost came from!



My great uncle actually had an MR2, in this colour, still does but he doesn't speak these days. Probably rusting away Sad



Always loved Ferrari's, dream car even still is one of these:



But I'd settle for this!


Even though I've got a lot of love for Lambo's too.

Strangely, some of my best youth memories of cars also involve a rusty white 1.1 Fiesta 'Popular', a 1.2 Nova, and a Citroen ZX Volcane!

Unrealistically, it has to be an orange McLaren F1 LM, a red F40 and a silver 959, in that order. Still the best three cars ever in my books.

Slightly more realistically, I always wanted an NSX and I'd love to have one some day, preferably in the dark purple colour Very Happy

It was the same colour as that too Razz

Not sure about being conceived in it. I've got a late September birthday so I expect it was a boring Christmas in 1983 Laughing

I always grew up with bmw's, dad had a 7 series most of my childhood.

So I do like bm's even though no one owned them.

Due to some car films I have had a love affair with Shelby Mustang Gt500. An elanor.
Also want a Charger and a Supra Aerodeck.

But the real love is all things Porsche, bar a few select models. The 911 started it. I have an original Sales brochure from the 996. The 3 that stand out are the 911 Carrera 2 1987 Targa, 959 and the new gt3 rs.

Also due to my french things a 205.

I wasn't into car's till I passed my test at 19, even though when I left school at 15 and got a job as an apprentice mechanic I still wasn't into them, I prefered drink, drugs and burds, now it's drink, burds and cars flower

First car I really wanted though was an RX7, I was going to buy one just before I went to Iraq, but it sold the morning I got back from Germany Sad so I bought an MR2 Very Happy

Well, my parents had some pretty bad cars back in time (due to the fact we live in the east...)

These were: Lada, Trabant, Fiat P126....

But thankfully I do not remember these cars Very Happy


And then came the love of Alfa Romeos.

They had a yellow, a blue and a red Alfasud - these with the 1.2 and 1.3 boxer engines (with twin Dellorto's Twisted Evil )



When they went to a holiday to Italy they spent their time in scrapies removing parts from Alfasuds when they wrre not on the beach Very Happy



After they had a few boring cars after - Fiat Regatta, Ford Sierra diesel, two Ford Escort estates...


So it was time to return to the boxers Twisted Evil - in form of an Alfasud 1.5 QO:



despite being 1.5 this cars was REALLY fast!!!


After that they bought the car which is still in the family - now it belongs to my grandmother, doing 100 miles a year Very Happy - mk.1 Fiesta 1.1 with a silly low ratio gearbox



The driving of this small and even not that fast car puts such a huge smile on my face everytime - new high powered cars can not give such experience I say!!!


Then it was time for some hydropneumatic action in form of two Citroen BX 1.9D:

first, a series I, and then a red series II.:



it was exactly the same!

Then came a brand new Picasso in 2001, then a BX GT (which we had loads of fun in! - had a bit of tweeked engine) and then my VTS in 2004.


Ohhh... and the lovely 2CV we restored from a pretty sad condition:



to this:




And a few years ago my father bought this:



USDM Impreza WRX STI 2.5


To be honest I would love to have an Alfasud and a BX again any time! (I can't include the Fiesta and the 2CV as we still have those! Very Happy)

Looking back at this list it seems like we really love boxer engines - Alfasud, 2CV, Impreza Very Happy

Don't think I ever grew up loving any particular car.

But there was a period when I wanted one of these:



But with 2 VW 5.0 V10 TDI engines in it.
