hot hatch time

...I'll admit I watched top gear last night..thinking yes, yes , yes, yes to those things they were doing.(I was crying with laughter while it was on)

Mine was a ren 19 16v 'chamade'...more upmarket than the 5 turbo and still 138 horses :-)

Who had what?

Before you start on the who had what, YOU had a WHAT. Typical collectors car
Astra GTE 16V, superb. The wayward handling as you gave it the full beans only made for a more interesting experience

I was a Peugeot boy... 205 1.6 GTi, then moved to the 309 1.9 GTi and finally left the hatches and on to a 405 SRi.


I've recently been thinking about a return to an old hot hatch for old times sake. Never managed a R5 Turbo, maybe now is the time.

When motoring was fun, no fancy esp, abs, traction control and so on.

MG Maestro turbo. Could deal with everything around at the time (in its class). Rusted in front of your eyes though! Saw 160mph on the clock (on a private road)

Bought an Impreza Turbo after it and it felt slow!
