    Oooh, so many choices! :)

    Back when you could only buy posters from Woolworths, this used to hang on my bedroom wall. It was my first dream car, absolutely nuts design at the time.

    The other would have to be the Ferrari F40. In my mind the only Ferrari I would want to own.

    Good choice gaz.

    I like both of yours too!

    Your right too many choices!

    I do prefer the older cars (zeds included) instead of the more modern cold machines.

    I loved this car but had to sell it in the mid 90's as my boss in Aberdeen did not see it as fitting transport to turned up with at customer visits.....!!!! (they were oil companies and they loved the car) I was then given a company car, pile of French carp.......

    That was the only company car at my first IT job I couldn't get hold of the keys for. The salesman whose it was, would not hand them over the miserable so and so.

    Had to put up with the 1.8 Sierra's instead :(
