    Fisker still exists...

    Still don't look appealing to me at all.... Although the new model isn't half bad. But the current one? nope.

    That’s very impressive.

    I actually saw a silver DB5 on the motorway yesterday! :)

    Sort of reminds me of the Cygnet. Putting leather sports seats and a badge on something doesn’t really make it an Aston...

    GAZ Volga 24: Built between 1970 and 1985, in the thick of the Cold War era. Nevertheless, I quite like the design. It even was in a Bond movie:

    Yeah I love that Yaris: Autocar had a disguised version on the track just before Christmas and I thought it looked terrific! Look at those rear arches :D You just know that'll be an absolute hoot.

    Look at the size of that intercooler! :D I see there's even a Japanese version with 268bhp- and all from a three cylinder 1.6l! Outrageous :)

    I don't believe Toyota have ever made a car that I have liked. Not a big fan of Japanese cars on the whole, to be honest. No thanks Jeff. Though I do like the Mitsubishi Starion, and the Lancer Evo V.

    I've always had a thing for Subaru.

    I especially the WRX, WRX STI, this generation of the Legacy... because I test drove it...

    And the previous generation Forester 2.0XT.

    Yes, most deinately. The WRX version. Like the Lancer Evo as well. Pretty cool cars. Subaru's are cool as they're very functional, rough cars. I like cars with an edge to them. tbh I like Japanese cars more and more. The randomness has gone and they seem to be truly designed these days, something the Koreans still have to pick up on. Like Mazda's latest incarnations as well, both the 3 and the 6. And the MX5, but for other reasons. The MX8 is something special too.

    Mazda has some nice cars in their current lineup.

    Apart from the 2, I like all of them actually.

    My wife and I used to have a 1992 MX-5 NA for 16 years. It was the most reliable and uncomplicated car we ever owned, and a hell of a lot of fun. It was only when the side sills had rusted through and we considered it had no ABS, no side impact protection and so on, that we decided to sell it (for EUR 3,000, after all) and get a BMW 330d Convertible (E93). The BMW is still with us (now as our "second" car), with 200,000 kms on the clock, but the MX-5 was sort of the love of my life among cars I owned.

    I'll just pop in here to say Aston Martin has cancelled the Rapide E. I would've been fine with it, but wasn't too keen on Bond driving it as had been reported in various tabloids.

    I considered ordering the 300 SL Roadster for a paltry EUR 998,500 but my wife insisted that that was beyond my budget. So I'm afraid I'll have to settle for the red E-Type 3.8 L drophead for about EUR 150,000. Dang.

    Well, it's still better than nothing. :-?
