My dad recently leased the little evoque, and he had a similar epiphany in it, didn't want to give it back at all, but at £44,000 the spec he had was a little expensive. (his 2011 Navara isn't as nice)

@TarmacTerrorist  I live near to the Salisbury plains and myself had a Discovery which I used to use to get across the plains whenever the traffic near Stonehenge was bad. Plenty of people here use them for what they are supposed to be used for. Though its not exactly affluent in some area's.

I love that this guy has raced it since it was new and gone for the acrylic wing to help keep the stock tail shape.

What some people are forgetting is that just because you represent a website "that features Scandinavian builds and customs" you have to build something along the same lines or equally as insane and time consuming. What they don't realise is that your profession isn't in fabrication its in business management. Hence you bought a car which represents the fact you like cars yet retains reliability and professionalism. It takes a special kind of person to roll up to work in a full in race machine everyday especially if you have a long commute.

My dad is definitely where it comes from, he is the kinda guy that would buy cheap cars on their last legs, and run them until their MOT's ran out. This often meant some of the cars were so bad they wouldn't even make it that long and he'd change cars every couple of months so I got to experience lots of older cars. Many many mini's my favourite being a matt black one with bright green wheel arches, countless mk1 and mk2 fiestas. An escort mk2 with a black vinyl roof (you wouldn't get one that cheap these days!!!) a Renault Savanna where many trips were spent squashed into the very back seats for fun instead of sitting in the normal back seats (retro coolness nowadays but probably seen as mega uncool in the day). He had a Kit car called a Spartan which I remember the roof collapsing whilst we were out driving in the rain. A Saab 900 which he had wanted for ages and the engine blew up within a week of owning it. Funny thing is his backup car was a mk2 nova saloon that always worked when he needed it too, so I don't know why he didn't just use it all the time. It rubbed off on me and now I seem to only own cars that are 20 years old or more although I don't really buy dogs which is something I learned from his mistakes.

I love project hunting, did so just yesterday with my older brother, we found a garden with an assortment of 80's fords, around the corner a 72 Nissan patrol. I've seen plenty on my travels that haven't moved for years and are still there now, a beetle, two triumph spitfires, a vw type 3 fastback. When I was younger the guy who lived behind us had about 4 lancia deltas, one of which the paintwork was graffiti. I wonder if he still has them now.

I think they should have gone down the weight saving route and made it a true homage. No passenger seat, half bubble windscreen and left that spoiler off in favour of a ducktail sort of thing.

I'd daily that! Perhaps take a tennis ball with me to stop water getting in the exhaust when I leave it on wetter days. I agree completely about builds, yes I have seen many "rat" style cars but I have never seen two exactly the same each have their own charms much the same with all builds. But it's often the rat ones that show the character of the owner best.

I like it because its quirky. But a completely different body style as a replacement. That doesn't make sense. Has to stay a proper booted coupe to keep the name.

Drifting is not racing, it's judged by opinion. Where as racing is about who finishes first. "Ask any racer, any real racer. It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning" defined by distance not points.
