Just setting this thread up (As per Martin's suggestion that everyone else has one...so its just for chat and general shite...keeps the meet threads a bit more manageable)

Feel free to fill they boots...but please remain within the normal rules as per usual.

Cheers. :)
 
This is why I struggle in justifying selling mine, because everybody regrets selling theirs!

Plus the fact I can never decide what I'd actually replace it with.

Cup -> DC5 -> { Caddy Van / Metro }

Interesting route you took wayne9989 xD

You are right Matt everybody who sells always regrets it after.. Same reason i won't sell mine, i shall let it die rust, rot and then i will bury it in the garden

I've had many vehicles and price per fun you cant really beat the Clio.

I'd hate to drive it everyday however it indeed makes me smile everytime I do get to drive it.

Fantastic value for money and dare I say one of the best sub 200bhp cars there is.


Totally different kettle of fish to the EP3, never owned a DC5 as always skipped it but I'm not overly sure for x4 price you'd get as much fun from one. (£ per fun).

Yep that's it, I can think of plenty of cars for 4x the budget, but they never tick all the boxes!
MartinR I haven't actually seen a rusty Clio - do they actually rust that much? I think the Valvers have seen a bit of rust, but not seen any on mk2's!

No Matt not yet seen a mk2 rusted up yet. Only rust i have seen is due to crash damage.

Mk1 valvers was/is a nightmare mine cost knocking on £450 in welding work to get it back from the brink.

Oooooh interesting.

martin no piss taking of my dci thankyou ;)
Flol would i do that? Do you still have it?? Do you want another? looking to shift our dci100 end of this year.

No I do not want another ! f**king awful cars :(

I still have it, waiting to be repaired and then it's either sitting up the yard doing f**k all or going.

Whats the plans with the metro Wayne? big power?
Well firstly we're buying a house and the Metro will be sat in a garage (I hope) so progress will be slow but I will be going down the 160 VVC route.

Clio's really do take some beating pound for pound and I miss mine like mad. On the other hand if I didn't sell it I'd still be sitting here wanting a DC5, at least I've got that out of my system!

Nato green makes any car better, regardless of what it is.

The original white paintwork had seen better days and I'd always fancied spraying something NATO green. Just needs lowering now, I've already got some deep dish multi spokes for it.

Man after my own heart, i've often toyed with the idea of doing that to the dog kennel,
but I don't like it to stand out, so i'm saving all my ideas for when it eventually becomes a track car,
or the Ford Capri i've built in my head, if I ever managed to get out the poor house.

Nice! The caddy is really a budget rat van, mainly for fetching and carrying parts for the SuperTro!

Neither have I , usually it's timing belts failing/ fuel systems f**king up or bottom end bearings making a break for it.

Saying that, this was a second hand engine that me and the old retired guy at work rebuilt the bottom end on. The head just got cleaned and put back on.

So dam lucky the injector didn't get mullered in that lol

so plan is fix it , sell it and buy an old ford
