there's a hill near me that's a 40 zone, when I go downhill in 2nd I feather the throttle and get it popping and banging all the way, it's so funny seeing people jump or looking around smiling and watching me go past :D

 

I must get 50 smiles per gallon

That's brilliant, just to think the amount of people you annoyed setting them car alarms off! lol. My brother used to have a white Opal Manta and he loved it, regrets selling it. Also used to do banger racing in them :) .

 

I also like tend to rev the car every now and then at traffic lights just to hear it purr! :lol:

back in Austrralia my 2003 Forester XS auto had a folding out cup holding next the radio :wub: , i used it for my 2m/70cm handy talkie as being a licensed radio amateur

 

now here in the UK the cup holder is gone in my 2006 XC auto! please Subaru why did you remove it :angry:

 

now i have no place for my handy talkie grrrrrrr

 

 

but you did give me bigger mirrors as the small ones on the XS were just a joke B)

My Opel Manta was heavily modded, 2.0 16v Opel GSI engine tuned up quite a bit, 1.6 Carlton gearbox as they use the Getrag gearbox with no seals, wax about 200bhp, which I appreciate isn't much today but back then was pretty serious, 0-60 was just over 6secs. It was also painted ford zinc yellow which didn't stand out much, what with that, the flames and the 109 Db it used to run at its not hard to see why I used to get pulled over a lot.

I have to be more sensible nowadays

My old MKII Escort. Where I lived you came down a hill, took a sharp right (almost back on yourself) then up another hill (which was my street). Every single time I'd come down the hill (quickly) slap it into second, lock it up with the clutch, turn in, power on sideways back up the hill.

 

I'm a good driver but that was a: stupid b: showed a total lack of mechanical sympathy.

I found that when in a multi storey car park, I can set car alarms off just by driving normally past them. Is it wrong to smile when they go off :)

Not at all I do the same thing I can even go down a road and do the same thing :D
