What car do you drive and why?

I (I mean the wife) have a green Golf GTI cause of the superb handling and I like the look of it.

Between me and my business partner we have a Corsa van cause its cheap to run and a Transit pick up cause it carries loads and tips.

Are there any hardcore out there that dont own a car?? If so.......
Do you really enjoy getting wet and cold?

The other half has a Pug 207 which I drive on occasion. Horrible thing, personally I hate driving and would rather ride the bike regardless of the weather.

Other half has a Fiat Punto that I borrow when the RF is in the garage for repairs but apart from that it has been used every day since Mid December for the 90 Mile round trip to work.

Pug 406 2.0L Petrol Turbo Executive that has been boosted with a T28, straight thru exhaust from headers back , gas flowed n ported head, Bosch MP3.2 ECU,
Turbo Electronic Valve Controller and other mods - running about 240 BHP, looks standard enough on the outside for the rozzers to leave me alone but will still show a clean pair of heels to quite a few modern sporties........ :mrgreen:
