Why dream? get them!
-My little '86 924s. I OWN it, I don't have to dream.
-Our Pug 207 diesel. Good for pretty much everything, plus saves money.
Cars I've owned and wish I've never given away, so I dream of having them again:
-72 VW transporter T2B (had no rust and I've sold it in 1995 for 350 Deutschmarks, which is about nil...
-'84 Mini mayfair, I had some funny fan-type 3-2-1 on it, and a HIF6 carb and 10'weller wheels which I still own and some 286° camshaft. What a great car that was until rust did us part. Did 110 mph! Without bumpers!
-86 Fiat Panda. It was leaking every fluid you can imagine, damper oil, brake fluid, petrol, the lot. But still it brought me wherever I wanted to be, 550kms to Hannover? easy peasy! its last 6 months I was driving with nothing but air in my brake system and a tyre filled to the brim with PU foam and tyre fit...
-My parents's 's s's '89 Mitsubishi L300. What a microbus that was, and it was sahara beige ;-) Imagine the facts: A mitsubishi, engine in the middle, rwd, AND with space in it! Ah, the memories! Some great, funny and less funny things happened in that car. Don't let my parents know!
Cars I dream of:
-Another 924s for rallying, maybe with the turbo engine of the 944turbo
-Some old Merc G-class. THE iron hog. Good for getting where no landrover will ever get.
-Opel Kadett City (familiar but much prettier than a vauxhall chevette), because it is one beautiful small car. the 60 hp version please.
-Mercedes W123, the taxi. Solid as the moon, comfy ride and nowadays, at a time when cars get uglier and uglier the merc is becoming quite a looker
now we're getting over ten, but seeing that I can get most of my dream cars for the money you musers could get a single one, I'll just go on.
-E-type 3rd series,
-356, preferably the 90hp one, but really a good replica kit would do.
-02 series bmw. Katja says they look like made out of lego
