Gt6 is a Green mk3, the car was used a couple of times in the tv series life on Mars. The 911 is a manual Carrera

As a young lad 17 i had a mk2  GT6 it had the less well located herald vitese style swing axle. the mark 3 gt6 and mark 4 spitfires had a better layout on the back same transverse spring but better anti roll set up.

My mk2 was 1969 marron round backed style. same hp 2 litre straight six engine, but with the axle layout you had to be very brave keep it planted into turns, because if you backed off at any point it got in to a terrible shape tucking the inside wheel under and it got sideways very dramatically.

But keep it planted under power and steer it through the turns it was a fun car, and the sound was well worth the fact it drank like a fish.

Over drive was a big thing and if you drove it sensible you could cover the miles in it, i used to get my dog and gun in it go up to scotland the northern firths regularly in that car in the mid 70s i had it about 3 years sold it in the exchange and mart  i took a 1600cc vitese in part ex with £120 cash.

The 911 is an s2, it’s an 07 with just 36 thousand on the clock, to be honest I don’t use it as much as I should, it sounds great when you are accelerating  the thing and I have nearly been caught out with it once or twice by getting a bit carried away by the sound.

Countryman yours is the 997 911. Porsche have model codes for each generation. The 996 before yours had the fried egg shape headlights. The 930 my dad looked at was the turbo body with whale tail 1980's car.

Yes that’s right, the 996 was frowned upon by some people for those lights, I think if you can find a nice low mileage Porsche they will be a good investment as well as a nice drive.

I’ve had a few nippy cars over the years. Couple of s3’s, a corsa vxr (not sure what I was thinking) now got a BMW M140i, runs about 420bhp. It’s all out of the window now with a baby on the way and I’m looking at a Volvo v60 in some shade of beige.

Love the old volvo  xc70 its been a good car up to now, it has been up into Scotland Inverness and beyond 6 times this season so far, and its off up again next Sunday morning for another foray, its got plenty of room and comfortable and gets around off tarmac of for a glorified shopping car.

One of the Brats at work wrote in the dirt on the tailgate the other day, WALANDER.  It took me a wile to tumble to it but Girl in the office thought it was funny anyway.

This Caterham was mine for a while. However you just can 'drive' these days as its busy and you're stuck behind people meaning it wasn't as fun as I wanted. Put your money in to a lease on a new vehicle and have your fun. BMW M2 on Vanarma for £340 per month...

After 10 or so years of countless company cars (all Ford) I switched to BMW about 3 years ago - currently running a 435D and X3 but thinking of switching to a X4 M Competition.

That's part of the problem with the X4 M Comp - it's about the price of the other two combined - at least I'd save on the insurance I guess...

I had a red Land Rover 110 . After owning it for 9 1/2 years it was still like driving a ******* fire engine.

I used to have a series 111 109 with the engine out of a fire engine. A 6x6 rangerover fire engine.

Mine was the old 1987) turbo diesel with 85? Raging horsepower. Swapped for a V8 110 with overdrive after that. Wish I could afford to feed one now!
