    This one went to be replaced by a 9-5 but if I could find a good 5 door, manual Turbo I'd be very tempted to raid the savings. Lovely to drive, comfortable and very very practical.

    It was the way with Triumph as they were cash starved and had to make do with little invention. Like the TRs of the late 60s early 70s all done on a shoestring budge, the only saving grace was the Triumph straight 6 engine. My best mate had a Doiiy Sprint back in the day how I loved and envied him, while I made do with my Inca Yellow Spitfire.

    No itís a V6, with the fairly unusual addition of triple Weber downdraught carbs (worth more than the rest of the car on their own now, apparently). Must find time to take it out more this year...

    IDA's ?

    I have these on kermit






    I had no idea how much they were now worth until a race engine builder friend told me. He was building an engine for a client whose period Webers were knackered. He traded them in for a new pair. They told him that would be £4k. which he thought was a bit dear until he realised they meant new carbs plus 4k his way! (The FIA historic boys are crying out for period I understand)

    Some really nice cars in here. I have a 1995 R33 GTR as my project & my brother has an E30 convertible. Hoping to add a W123 or W124 coupe next year to my small collection.

    Great thread, and some fantastic cars!

    I currently have (and have had for 6 years) a 1989 E30 325i cab. Few M-sport interior features and badges, plus Alpina-style wheels.

    Have had quite a few classics over the years- MGB GT, Midgets, Beetle, Minis, volvos.

    We had a 1970 Herald 13/60. I put two clutches in it before realising that the front thrust bearing had gone and the crankshaft was moving forwards and backwards, losing the effect of the clutch movement! Once fixed, the gearbox was smooth as silk!

    Some lovely cars in this thread.

    This is my M3 that I have owned since 1998, its currently in the garage up on stands while I restore and rust protect the underside..

    Really want it back on the road this year..









  30. #180
    Love the E30 M3! One of my greatest regrets is not buying one back when they were 10K, or even 20K...

    E30 overall is such a great car. In another life when I lived in Los Angeles I had an E30 325i Convertible.

    That looks very tidy. Great photos.

    It wasnít that long ago when I purchased mine that I went to view a few slightly ropey ones at around the £5K mark. How I wish Iíd purchased them and stuck them in storage.

    Thanks, when I bought mine I nearly took a loan to add to the funds I had to buy a K reg Evo Sport II, it had 32k miles like new and would have cost £14k!!
    Same car now is around £120k - Doh!

    Yeah, the Sport Evos have gone bananas

    Have you seen e30garage.norway on Instagram? They are producing tons of NLA panels and parts for E30s. Really good stuff.

    No the ruby was a three door and I prefer the five door on looks and practicality. It was only a na 16v and was replaced with a 9-5 in the mistaken belief we could get a child seat and two adults in the back. Before the red one we had a blue 8v turbo. It drove beautifully but had lived much of it's life near the sea and I was fighting a losing battle against rust.

    Watches have definitely taken a back seat to cars now with regards to collecting.

    This is just a few of them & one day I'll get round to photographing them all together.
    The rest are mainly other variants of the SL, from the 80's & 90's

    1962 220SEB Convertible


    1989 300SL

    Lovely collection of Mercedes there, the Pagoda Top is especially beautiful, as is the 71 280SE 3.5 coupe. Something special about stacked headlight models

    The DS... In 135 or so years of car-making, has there ever been a car sů advanced, sů ahead of its time as the DS? The first one was introduced in 1955. I can not name a car of that era that came close to the DS' design! Materials, technology, shape. Everything was 50 yrs ahead of its time.

    Not entirely sure it counts as a "classic" (it's a 1991 car) but I've had this for 12 years and feel no desire to sell it just yet. Cross-plane V8, transaxle, aluminium body panels and pop-up headlights: what's not to like?

    I think most Porsche cars are and will be classics in the future. The 4x4s might not fare so well

    Generally I'm not a Porsche road car fan but I love the 928 and that colour suits it really well. Is it a manual?

    Thank you - it is a handsome beast (the interior is Classic Grey, exactly the same colour as my primary school geography teacher's shoes). It's an auto, as it happens - box based on the '80s S-class transmission, so 4-speed and quite well suited to the engine IMO. It's more or less possible to drive it like a manual (gears being P-R-N-D-3-2) and while the long gearing makes traffic-light grands-prix no fun, 50-80 in second gear is quite a lot of fun. ;-)

    I did try a couple of manuals - one very leggy GT which in retrospect would've been a great investment but needed an awful lot of work to be properly reliable, and an early 16v car which was a lot of fun but really hard work in urban traffic. I'm sure I'd eventually have got used to the dog-leg first, but possibly not without a few shunts first...

    I was at the Motor Show in 1978 when the 928 was launched, I was 20, I drove there and back in my Triumph Spitfire with a lady. The show was awesome, I remember it well, and the Porsche stand really stole the show. I recall seeing a blue Aston Martin convertible too, price was £38K if I remember rightly.

    The 928 body style has stood the test of time well in my view, unlike the wedge-shaped cars that TVR and Lotus were producing at the time; they just look very dated to me thesedays.

    Seeing the newly opened NEC was quite an eye-opener too, a day out I`ll never forget.

  46. #196
    Agreed about the 928 standing the test of time. I cannot think of any other car that is 40 years old but could pass for a new car.

    Great looking car in my opinion.

    928 is an awesome car, I read somewhere they have like 2kms of wiring, well that might be an exaggeration but you know what I mean..

    Rest assure. It's a classic. Which model is it?
