I'm loving the Sports related cars Colin and Simon, any pictures or a little more information I'm sure a lot of us on here would like to hear and see more if you can manage it.

A 1968 Porche 911S. Still did everything it said on the tin, despite 130,000 miles on the clock when I sold it due to bodywork corrosion, although it still looked good.

Related to fun and driving my current 4/4 for 5 years. Not only the car itself but also many exciting tours that I remember with pleasure. The car that gets a lot of appreciation is our 1968 Mercedes 230. With every new generation of cars its driving feeling becomes more special and unique. But still not old-fashioned.

1964 Humber Hawk. Many years ago. Great back seats.

A pity, really. In retrospect, it might have been good to keep the car and remove the rust, even if it would not have been cheap to do so. I don't mean because of the monetary value today but to extend the relationship with the genuine 911 S SWB.

I would agree Heinz but ownership was in the late 1970's when values would not justify the full bodywork repair costs. Ready and affordable availability of what are now desirable Classics meant there was always an alternative. I did have in mind a 2.7 RS Targa but interest in motorbikes took over around then.

My Dad had one, SAT 957, when I was a kid, a Mk 6 I believe. Always started on the button hot or cold. I remember falling asleep many times in that comfy back seat on late night journeys.

!972 Lotus Europa.

Cramped, hot, noisy and at times smelt a bit of petrol in the cockpit.

But full of Colin Chapmans philosophy on car design, light, great power to weight ratio and stuck to the road like glue.

The most impractical car I have ever owned, but fantastic fun.

I loved my 1965 MkI Spitfire that I had at age 18/19. I was forever tinkering with it - just to keep it on the road.
