feeling my age on this one and suspect most of you will need the pic, however...
Austin 1300 'GT' (which qualifies it for this thread!) with spotlights and vinyl roof
mine was blue, which made it much faster.

several friends had some of the above. Mk2 golf 16v was always fun, 8v with high lift cams supposed to be better. Corrados looked great. Always lusted after a nova sr in the day as my nova with a whole litre was over used!

Mine was eventually a S3 (225) Quattro - awesome tow car for the ring 18, and worth the wait. Then cometh the children and all change.

I remember paying just over a pound a gallon (gallon NOT litre) for 5 star leaded petrol.

Chris, with a boat name like yours you must surely remember 'Put a TIGER in your tank'?
