    From ebay…

    ’71 Dodge ram.

    Or a more current SRT 10

    only mildly impractical due to huge size and fuel consumption.

    Or how about a Hilux

    I know you said car…but you did say cool and impractical.

    Or what about a Charger?

    Also from ebay.

    unfortunately that campervan is way to pracical, you could fit a bike in it for example.

    Been a 2cv owner for over 20 years so I can recommend them. Buy one with a galvanised chassis though.

    ok to stop it getting silly, mut be less than the street value of 1 kidney, so about Β£14k

    I’d buy something that is easish to sell on and holds its value- oldschool mini 1275, Caterham, actually- the Cateham or the Elise would be my choice.

    Sensible would be a MX5 though πŸ˜€

    If I had no kids/mortgage/wife and wanted a fun car:

    But as I have all three, I will just have to dream about owning one πŸ˜‰

    For me it would be a Porsche 944 derivative – most likely a 968

    My dad wants an MX5, nuff said

    A mini could be cool, but would need something silly like a R1 engine

    ski with that suede finish oh, it would stain badly if you decided to knock one out over the interior πŸ™„ 😯

    Plus the 1.8T Toyota engine is mint in that chassis.

    ap while you can stil edit your post i’ll give you the benifit of the doubt and ask you to remove the vomit iduceingly ugly abohration that is your fist suggestion!

    thisisnotaspoon, I passed my test in a new mini cooper, my first car was a mini cooper (borrowed from driving instructor) and I learnt to drive in a MX5 two years later- it teaches you handling, poise, balance all within your limits- well if you don’t count a few silly moments. Its connected, feel, lots of feel and feedback to you- this is the mk2.5 I’m talking about not the mk3 (although I hear the mk3.5 is more connected)

    <Note to self – must ignore everything thisisnotsspoon ever posts as he thinks a Vauxhall Viva is cool.>

    Now then ‘spoon, I’ve got a lovely Austin Allegro for sale for a grand. Note the state of the art square steering wheel, and the fact that it is shaped like an Alfa Brera. (Squint…in a dark room)

    tisnas – sorry, just went on the impractical, forgot the cool.
    The Vantage is in your price range though 😯

    i passed my test in soe kind of rubbish seat POS

    then borrowed my dad’s midget for the summer a few years back, at no point did i ever take off over a hump backed bridge or go round corners sideways, honest πŸ™‚

    indeed it is, but the first pic of it is with a tow rope atached! not a good start πŸ™

    aP; those Cayenne things are nasty. Proper cheap, inside, actually.

    Comfy, mind. But I don’t get the point.

    Lol, I used to have a 1275 Austin Healey Sprite and never used to cane that through a tunnel with the roof off, just to hear it sing πŸ˜‰

    It did catch fire on me, and imaced my legs, long gone, but never forgotten πŸ˜‰

    i will buy one of these one day if there are any tidy ones around…

    i keep looking at that ferrari, but i know at the first sign of a country lane my licence would get torn into so many little pices the comunity suppourt officer would need a microscope to charge the magistrate with littering!

    waihiboy, Integrales are really lovely. Just being picky, although I’m not expert that looks like a modded up ‘replica’ Integrale, not a proper one. No Elephant badges, wrong wheels, and the grille and front end generally don’t look right. In fact the more I look at it, the wronger it looks.

    My mate wrote his off in the usual fashion – ‘the brakes don’t work when the wheels aren’t on the ground!’

    waihiboy, dont follow the pic ………………

    Hore: Impreza WRX or STI:

    Hahhahahahhahaha… you think those poxy, modified family cars are ‘cool’, ffs. They are about as cool as Peter Stringfellow. They’re also practical because they are basically family cars with a turboed engine and 4wd system.

    Anyway, they may go fast, but don’t delude yourself that Scoobies are cool…

    RB – those Cayennes are about Β£12K now, all the good cars I can think of are too expensive FF Jensen Interceptor, Bristol, Alvis…
