1991 Honda Accord EX wagon, with a manual transmission. Only problem, they stopped making them in 1997 so I might have to get a Subaru Outback or Forester. At 300K at the station, because it's a station wagon? Selling it for parts to a guy who has two already. 0-60 9.6 seconds, four cylinder about 17 seconds for a standing 1/4 mile. It's much shifting and pushing the pedal to the floor. Not a sports car.

Fully paid for in about 2001, so along the same lines as others, 15 years of driving a paid for car, and loving it.



Unrealistic dream kind of car?

Supercharged LSA V8-Powered Manual transmission, CTS-V Wagon, 551 horsepower. Probably a little much for a grocery getter, but imagine merging onto the Interstate. Somewhere in the area of 0-60 in 3.7 seconds, 12.2 @ 120 mph (same as a Chevrolet Corvette)

Still it's a station wagon.  :) Gotta have a wagon.

Where do I start... I'd have a warehouse full of cars if I could

Porsche 911 Turbo/GT3, 356 or 550
Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing
Plymouth Hemi Cuda or Dodge Challenger Convertible
Dodge Charger 500 Hemi
Dodge Dart Hemi Super Stock
And on and on

If I could only have one, 911

Funny how things change as you get older. I used to be a huge fan of hypercars and supercars. Now I really like the idea of an understated sleeper like a Golf R with an APR stage 3 tune. After the warranty is up of course. The Trackhawk looks like a great deal of fun too for straight line pulls.

I still have my 16yr old Fabia VRS... been tinkered with a little. Custom road map, larger turbo, Large FMIC, Miltech Sports Exhaust, Uprated clutch for the 400lb foot torque... rear ARB, big brakes, Coilovers, big air intake and last year... treated it to a fresh coat of paint (all over). It doesn't get driven a lot but it is great fun to drive on twisty /single track roads in Northumberland & Scotland.

Sounds like you've been tinkering more than just a little! 400 lb-ft - have you had it dyno'ed? BHP? Big question, what did you do other than the coilovers up front? How is the hop and understeer? Genuinely curious even though we have not had Skodas here in Canada since 1989.

It was up on a rolling road for stats, 220bhp when it was decated but that has been put back on now to pass the MoT. There's a strut brace + uprated Front ARB. The bushes are all Polyurethane... it's not the most comfortable car to drive, a little on the firm side but it does corner like a go-cart  ;D To be honest, I was thinking of taking the strut brace off as I think the new coilovers work better without it.

Most of the control/braking was sorted out before Jabba Sports done the engine tweaks. The next clutch that goes (only had 2 throughout the life of the car) will result in the dual mass flywheel being replaced with a single and a LSD put on. You have to be progressive with the accelerator otherwise wheel spinning is an issue... up to 3rd gear. It's been one off the cars that has been great fun to own and work on. Do most of my own work/repairs. The original clutch lasted 6 months as they held the torque back to 320lb and then lifted it right up when the paddle clutch went it.

A VW Golf R would be another great car to play with without it being two obvious on the road... especially if it's de-badged  ;D
 
Edit- Yeah it hops a little round roundabouts but never leaves you feeling it will lose control, just lands planted and pulls away again. I think the car is probably far more capable of speeds into corners than I have balls to test  :o

Thanks for the additional information. Sounds like it's a hoot to drive!

Seriously considering the R now for about six months. Currently daily driving a Wrangler which is pretty much a necessity where I am, but not exactly a fun or spirited vehicle to drive anywhere but off road. Last payment coming up in a couple of months so looking for a second vehicle. The only question is whether to buy an older one and throw some aftermarket money at it right away or hold off and see if the rumors of a 400hp version for 2020 have any merit.

Possibly wait until the new one comes out. As soon as you modify the car, especially increasing bhp, the insurance goes up more than it would if you had a standard car at the same bhp. Of course, if you enjoy working on the car yourself, then it would be worth the extra!

For me, this will be the last car I'll have which I'll playground with myself... newer cars are not quite as friendly to work on yourself now.

I've been blessed to always be driving my dream car. I've loved every car i've ever owned, from Mazda to the Land Rover Defender to the Porsche. We love cars.  Currently have the pocket rocket VW Golf R. but, dream car would be one of those 1950s convertible jags, or porsche, not fussy. :)

When you'are getting older (and wiser) you realize that every car from 1,000$ to 10,[email protected] will take you to the point A to Point B!

Yes all cars will take you point A to Point B , but how fast and how much style will they take you there ?

Depends,
With kids? No matter the car A to B seems long
With wife and kids? A to B no matter the car seems extra long
With kids, wife and grandparents? B seems more far than ever
Going to work? Starting from A early you usually arrive late at B
plus there is never parking space available on B when arriving.
Leaving from work? You wish point B wasn't your destination
plus you will also not find a space to park exactly at point A!

As for style watch this "mom drive" parody and get some ideas :P
