    "Stand Out" Cars within AOC

    Sat thinking about this the other day, and thought I'd see what others think...

    When I first started using the site when I picked up my mk4 van in 2005 (about a year before I finally registered having got the mk4 estate ) there were a few "stand out" cars for me, either "finished" or as works in progress.

    Pete's V8, Jimmy_C's Coupe, Brett's Mk4, LordNikon's VXR, Ffoeg's 2.2, Linea Rossa's cabby... and of course the mystery surrounding M1GST to name but a small selection that I can think of off the top of my head.

    Nowadays, Pete's V8 has moved on, as has LordNikon's VXR. Brett's mk4 (now in the hands of SWC_Scotty) doesn't seem to be around much, and I haven't read a thing about LR's cabby for a while either. Jimmy broke/sold his coupe, Asrat came and went, and really only Geoff's car is still on here as much. Scotty's 888 (now f4af100uk's) evolved into a monster in that time as well of course.

    So what cars stand out for you guys? Is the standard still as high as it was?
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    Hopefully my van project starting near the end of this year will stand out a bit. Going for a lot of different ideas, I'm getting bored of seeing all the same mods being done and the lack of originality, yet these people do make their cars look amazing, I'm not doubting that

    i cant remember his name (sorry mate) but the green coupe with the black bonnet and 888 spoiler is a stand out car, car it at pv and it was feckin awesome, also darren's GSi is an interesting read as he just changes stuff all the time and thats going to become a true beast i think
