About me and my passion for cars
i love most cars (except Ferrari's) i prefer classic cars to modern ones because they take more skill to drive, they look better and they have more soul.
My first car
Citroen AX Dimension 954cc.
I had this car for about 7 months (4 of those months it was still on "L" plates) and one morning i was driving to college and a woman driving a Ford Galaxy decided that when she pulled out of a junction she didnt need to look either way and slammed in to the side of me.
The car was written off and my mate suggested that i should take it to his farm and we would do a spot of rallying in it. A particularly deep puddle was the downfall of the little Citroen as the mudbank on the exit of the puddle hit the sump and shoved the whole engine back towards the bulkhead. The impact was also strong enough to send the ECU in to safe mode so it shut off the fuel supply. Here it is lodged in it's shallow grave
My dream car
A European Group A spec TWR Jaguar XJS
