being a s 95% of us on here are all evo owners drivers i was just wondering what cars you have owned do you have the best memories of ........
personally for my self there were 2:

1: my mark 2 rs2000 custom escort with the droop snoot, black vynal roof with sunroof and fishnet recaro,s.....
had spax adjustables and strut brace...
probably wont ever get a car that much fun or that much sideways action, always driven out the side and rear windows... :D

2. my first rs cosworth saphire 2wd with twin head light conversion and 4wd bonnet full leather and lower than your grannies nipples .... :coolsm:

sure one day i will lok back on the evo with the same rose tinted glasses and forget about how much it cost to run the fecker .. :crackup:

my first car, an opel manta gte, later fitted with a 2.1 16v valve engine on throttle bodies, 240 bhp, big brakes, lsd, later bodykit and interior, had it for 10 years, broke it and sold the parts as the shell was knackered :(

Yeah - mine was a Vanden Plas 1500 :blush:

Then I got one of these (in blue):


Bought it for £500, went 10,000 miles round europe in it with two m8s and a trailer tent, then came home and sold it for £500 :crackup:

I'd always wanted a 5GT Turbo - they were the Pulsar GTI-Rs of their day - far to fast for what they cost!

I had a Polo G40 which would out accelerate a Sapphire Cosworth from 30-70 in 3rd :D

Have had a few other nice motors - more conventional than xlr8s mind!!

200S14 that would hit the rev limiter in 5th and was the perfect drift-mobile :coolsm:
GTO that would hit 179mph :coolsm:
Impreza Turbo 5dr - I never fitted a stereo to that car - what a beautiful sound :coolsm:
M Roadster tuned to 333bhp which I fitted Nitto 555s to and drag raced. Everywhere :crackup:

Oh, and a Escort Mk3 1.6 :crackup:

and a Volvo 360GLT - how embarrasing!

my first car was a astra merit S. Oh yes it was the S not the bog standard merit. Anyway never had any sporty cars until my Coupe 20V turbo. 220BHP totally standard and a beautiful Italian sports car. Now that had to go to for the Evo (my sensible family car. Well it does have 4 doors and a big boot) now I have 2 kids. Still miss the Coupe though. pic attatched
