Hi everyone I’m a newby to the club

If you are new to the board or have never made a post before, don't just lurk around, post in here and introduce yourself and your Minor if you have one. It would be great to hear from you.

Cheers, being an overweight balding late 40 something in a little noisy traveller, pulling up to the lights and properly nuking a fast car of today is priceless. The look on people’s faces is priceless. My daily is a V70R AWD with 300HP which has a very similar effect (the old P80 shape) pull up at the lights, they get the drop in my because it’s an auto but from 30 - We’ll over the speed limit and watching their lights bobbing up and down in the rear view whilst snatching for gears is comical, all in my old R Reg V70... scares quite a few people including me!!!!

When I had the Celica GT-Four (cost me £3800) I had a lovely moment where a guy in an almost new Maserati came up too close behind me. My budget 20 year old motor held him on the straights and left him in the bends. Loved that car but had to sell when I bust my shoulder and couldn't drive for a while.

Love it when older cars kick the ass on modern ones 👍🏻👍🏻
I drove an EVO3 yesterday really put a smile on my face, to be fair it’s 400 bhp track car but road legal. My friend is try to get a feel for what it’s worth he builds mustang race cars and others. I will post a picture.

The handsome guy in the shot is me 😉👍🏻😂😂😂

Hi and welcome, yes, it's great fun to see off a modern, but they are becoming a lot quicker these days, particularly the VAG range with easily upgradeable power, launch control, 4wd etc.
