    I was given the Reatta at a very young age. I was probably 10 years old when it was decided that I would get the title+registration once I get it running again.

    I have a 20 foot long 1974 Buick Lesabre, runs great, and a 1978 VW Beatle, which now runs great, the photo is when I had just picked it up, so she was a bit dusty.

    It has a 455ci, and yes, I have some more photos. I found her sitting for sale, sign said $2,000 so I grabbed it the next day, I just went and grabbed some photos for you, unfortunately the seagulls got to it before me, but if you ignore that, she looks the same as the other photos. Got an Edelbrock air filter for it a couple years back, but I like the idea of keeping it all original (plus it looks good up on my wall) she was painted once in 1980, and the vinyl top was replaced the same year, because the mill it was stored in overflowed and acid got all over the car, but the car was special ordered with the tri-colour because they didn't make that combo in 74', it was a one owner car, and had 67,000 miles on it when bought. Just an all original survivor.

    Oh man that thing just looks wicked, you hang on on to that car, and look after it too. It just looks so nice and my god $2000 bucks ! Bargain of the century ! Now as much as i like snorkel aircleaners it probably best if you just stick the Edelbrock one on, it'll breath way better (especially seening as its a 455). I did the same thing on my old Holden and it ran a lot crisper and didn't need a big gulp of air before taking off. And thanks for taking the time to take some photos :)

    I've got a 1991 Ford Bronco XLT. It's has a 5.0 v8 with the E4OD automatic trans with push-button transfer case. Got her for $2000 and have put about $3800 into it to get it where it is now (that includes 5 new tires). I've got a ZF 5 speed manual trans and transfer case out of a 1990 F250 parts truck that I'll probably rebuild to put in my truck if the trans ever goes out.

    1994 Nissan Sunny N14 Inspiration 3dr 1.4i Twin Cam 16v. It only has 87PS, but it is one of the best sounding 1.4 engines I've ever heard and makes me feel like I'm on a rally course sometimes, and this is with the stock exhaust.
    The gearbox is super smooth, the clutch is nice and light, the handling is good, the seats are comfy, it's straight forward to work on and the best thing is, it's ultra reliable. Oh, and the insurance for a 17 year old in the UK is actually fairly affordable.

    And my 2009 Golf City. I just bought it this past winter from my grandparents to replace my previous rusty winter beater.
