Eclectic. Who would put a Toyota engine in a Honda?

To say it was a good car to drive would be an outright lie. But it was utterly mental in a straight line

1. Ford Capri 2.0S (my first car and only Ford I've had)
2. Lotus Esprit Turbo (1st of 3 Esprits I've had and one of 6 Lotuses but you can't beat the James Bond look)
3 Fiat X1/9 (owned 3 of them and loved them all)
4. Ferrari 360 Spider (Probably the Goldilox Ferrari for me.)
5. Ultima GTR (not really owned anything else as scary)
6 Aston Martin Vantage (very classy, great noise)
7 Porsche 996 Turbo S (after 3 of them I've realised I'm not really a Porsche guy, but it was ballistic)
8 Jeep Wrangler (slow, noisy and like driving a wheelbarrow but much more fun than any of the Porsches)
9 Caterham R300 (must have been good because I do remember some of the runs in it)
10 Honda Civic Type R FK8 (loved the daft looks. Wouldn't have believed FWD could be so rapid)
Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Wanted: Train.

It was a tough choice as it turns out I have not driven many cars, and Metro's are loads of fun (also first and second cars)

Not a particularly interesting list but it turns out I tend to buy a lot of cars from the same manufacturers!

Elise S1
Mazda RX8
Golf GTi mk7
VX220 (bit of a cheat on the rules)
Toyota MR2 Roadster (really are a fantastic handling car)
Porsche 944 (1st track car and was so much fun to throw about)
Audi RS2
Clio V6 II (not a good car, but certainly memorable)
205 Gti
Z4M Coupe
