Show off your car
« on: September 12, 2022, 04:21:21 PM »
I vaguely remember on the old forum there was a thread for sharing photos of your car.

As a motoring enthusiast, I'm sure others would agree, I'd love to see photos of your cars. Daily drivers, weekenders, race cars, all of the above.

I'll kick us off:



2009 Mazda3 MPS. I've had it for about 2 and a half years (bought it in Feb 2020, right before COVID hit).

With all the negativity it gets for the (overly criticised) torque steer, which isn't anywhere near as bad as everyone says, it is actually a super fun car to drive.

Feel free to share your cars too!

My little beast. I watched Mostert throwing an RS around the Mountain at the 6 Hour in 2017 and finally got my hands on one in 2020. Two years of ownership and still brings on a smile every time I look at her ;D.

Be glad to show off my every day road car.  A 2007 Pontiac Vibe (Toyota Matrix re-badged).  I "inherited" it from my wife, Sue, when she upgraded earlier in the year.  I always seem to get the hand-me-downs and make them last as long as I can. 



Currently 243,000+ miles / 391,000+ kilometers.

Pontiac - a make no more.

This is my absolute pride and joy, my 1980 Mk2 Ford Escort with the might YB Cosworth Turbo engine.

Have owned it for 10 years now, and it's massively different to the day i bought it.  8)



Massive thanks to Kytabu for the images last time out at the track LEGEND!  :D

A shout out to The Arrow for starting this thread!  Great job!  I am sure we will get some great responses.

What track were you at when that pic was taken, Jetpac?

I was at Sydney Dragway which is now Australia's best drag strip. ;)

....but when there is dirty work to be done, our 1995 F-150 is fired up.





300 c.i. straight six with a five speed manual on the floor.
