    I Really Miss The Old Days!..........

    Although there are a lot of splendid cars on the open road today, I have got to say I prefer the cars of the late 70's to mid 90's. For me they just don't make cars the way they used to. For some people this is a good thing, largely down to build quality and safety etc.

    However, nothing makes my heart skip a beat as much as seeing a throw back car still on the road looking prestine!.

    Here are a few of the cars that instantly spring to my mind when I think about the good old days!... Rally bred cars till I die!!....

    I have to agree, I love the old cars.

    I see an Escort RS Cosworth every morning and it's stunning, looks brand new.

    I'm lucky enough to have my 1987 Opel Manta as a toy.

    I prefer the old jap style if you know what i mean, always been in love with mitsubishi GTO twinturbo, and obviously the skyline r33/34 and nissan 200zx and 350z love these cars. although i love the integrale is is a fantastic car, although i think the stratos is better lol
