    I like the old-new style of the Ford Thunderbird that they started making again. I like the Mini too.

    god i miss driving....

    my first car was a 1974 Datsun 1600 - I loved that thing. 1600 engine, rear wheel drive, turboed - the most fun car i ever had. Little rally thing that loved to be thrown around.

    Followed that with a Suzuki Swift GTi - had a lot of fun in that thing too. All in all, I prefered my Datto - but I liked the Swift.

    Had a R33 Skyline GTS-t after that, which a lot of people loved, and for raw horsepower was hard to top - but i found it heavy and cumbersome and got sick of the insane insurance I was paying on it...

    Sold it and bought a Mitsubishi FTO GP version R, which I custom imported into Australia from Japan.

    That car rocked. Turned so many heads. Only thing I didnt like was the front wheel drive, which cost me some drift points (esp compared to the Skyline), but on the whole, I much prefered it. Plenty fast enough for my needs...and then I moved to Asia and have driven about five times in five years.

    Yup, almost half a year old and less than one thousand miles on it.

    I must say there is nothing, just nothing, like a V-12. They redefine smooth, and have unerring presence. Sad about the governor, though, unless it is near the actual top end. Roy, less than a thousand? It is sad to see that all the recent used Astons available always have really low mileage -- I suppose those who can afford them tend to have drivers, and the ones who do enjoy them never sell them. Regards, Huntsman
