    Metro turbos

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=110342674380


    Im so taken by this, because I used to have a little mg metro for my first car. Now you reckon its worth a punt or should memories of my metro not be rekindled and lay firmly in the past.

    I love it. I think I need a drive in 1 to remind me how awful it was

    These looked wicked in white.

    They may be crap in comparison to a modern car but at least they had what so many new cars lack these days, character. A bit of A series tranmission whine (from brand new) never hurt anyone and they were pretty chuckable around the corners.
