    Favourite Car - that you've owned

    Following on from the ugliest car thread and seeing the love for some of the uglies, how about the favourite/ best car that you have owned (not what you wish you could/ should have bought).

    Of all the motors I've personally owned, my favourite was my old Hilux Surf Black Navigator. I bought it new when I was living in Tokyo back in 2001, fully fitted with all mod-cons including sat nav back then. It was an absolute beast of a motor, so much fun to drive that I bought it back to the UK when I came back and kept it for 8 years. Only had 70,000 on it when I sadly gave it up. Unfortunately, they have long changed the shape and they don't look anywhere near as smart these days.

    My first car was a Vauxhall Nova Saloon Pearl Edition, you're 30yrs ago, had a nice spec, loved that car, then I had a Golf estate which I modded, black wheels, air filter, lowered, bad boy bonnet, it was a phase and the car was okay, mind you on Yokohama rubber and lowered stiff suspension it stuck to the road like glue, then it was a Laguna, great car still like the shape, after that was a Mazda 3 2.2L sport Nav 185bhp, now that by far was my favourite car, current Mazda 3 Sport Nav included.

    The old Mazda 3 hatch at 185bhp, you hit the sweet spot on the rev range and it was a rocket ship, it was barely run in when I exchanged it for my current Mazda 3, I was gutted. I still see it occasionally around the area.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    ive had a few i would like to have kept ,a morris traveller ,mk1 escort,alfa 33 cloverleaf,mazda rx7,but my fave was an old square shaped shogun .great old battlebus went anywhere and did it with ease.
    currently steering around a 2.4 V70 diesel,which is pretty good.
    common sense is so rare it should be classed as a super power.

    I've had a few favorites at different times. First favorite was a RS200 back in the 80's. Next favorite was a 911 super sport in the late 90's. Now as I'm getting older I love my current car Porsche Macan S and no doubt this will become a favorite.

    Mine would be my second car. An 'H' reg Triumph 2000 Mk.1 saloon that I bought for £300. Nice straight six twin carb engine and nice to drive. It's the only car I owned I wish I still had now.

    MK2 RS Focus. Loved it but just it attracted too much attention from muppets.

    Dolomite Sprint. More nostalgia than anything as modern cars are way better.
