Had an ex CID manual V8 SD1 as one of my 1st cars and loved it. I had an X1/9 too but hated it-I didn't test drive it first and when I got in I found my knees hit the steering wheel.

Had mk 1 and Mk2 Escorts too but I think my favourites were a Manta Coupe,tuned 2 litre mk 2 Capri and my mates matt black mk1 escort with bucket seats. rollcage and a 2 litre pinto lump.

sorry not enough zero's and not enought zero's in the bank for an RS 200 in the 80's, yes RS 2000.
Did you know Reliant built the RS 200 body shells, there's a little bit of useless info.

Had a Lancia Beta HPE VolumeX similar to this:

- boy did that supercharger make a lovely noise and she used to motor along pretty well

Mind you it rusted nearly as fast as it accelerated .....

No I didn't realise that - mind you the Reliant Scimitar was a great car.

Loved the Lancias - who cares if they rust and aren't reliable - if you want a car to do the shopping in by a Nissan Micra. If you have a soul get a REAL car!!!

I had a non supercharged 2 litre HPE for about 3 weeks. It fell in half with rot along the front bulkhead/inner wing join until one day I came out and the floor was touching the ground

Exactly. I loved that car, but bits had a habit of falling off as you accelerated.... used to leave a trail of debris up the motorway Mind you every bit that fell off made it a little lighter so it went quicker
