This thread got me thinking:
We've had threads before on cars we've lusted after, and I'm sure plenty of people have had head-turning motors, but I was wondering what 'normal' cars we had in days past that we look back favourably on.
Two jump to mind for me. I had a 91-plate Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6GL hatchback which I absolutely adored. Beautiful, supremely comfortable, loaded to the gills (for its age) with toys, handled like a dream. Wonderful car. I loved it so much that it was my go-to marque when I needed a car in a crisis; followed it up with an SRi and a 1.8CD both of which cost sub-£500. Last decent car Vauxhall ever made, if you discount Holden.
The other was the froggy Ford Scorpio. Spent a grand on something which I thought was the best of a bad bunch at short notice (ie, I needed something right now), despite hating the look of the thing. The single most comfortable car I've ever owned, proper driver's car with a seat like an armchair, absolutely ate miles. Ugly as sin outside but lovely inside, and what do you look at when you're driving it? A little tail-happy but that kept you on your toes (-:
