    Not ours, but ours was very similar... a hand-me-down in two-tone silver with bordello red interior. We finally gave up on it the second time the starter fell off of it. :|

    Pics of modded 2011 MINI JCW I used to own. Fun car to drive and it handled very well as it had numerous suspension mods. It would top out about 148 mph.

    Integra Type R one of the best FWD cars ever made.

    I had a lesser Integra GSi. I never drove a Type R, but can only imagine, as the GSi's handling was amazing.

    Yep.

    Mrs. H's dad had one of the original Olds Toronados ('66 or 67), now that you mention it. Long before I knew her/them... but what cool cars those were. The Eldorados were also cool -- but I loved (and still do) the aesthetics of the original Toronado body style.

    My brother has 2 of those 60s Toronados, a 1973 El Dorado convertible, a 1976 El Dorado hardtop, and a 1969 Buick Riviera absolutely identical (color, trim, wheels, everything) to the one seen in "Harold and Maude". :p

    49f8js9q5cp9.jpg 1986/7 Buick Regal with Buick 307 motor. Presidential Model. Dodge D150 I think. It had a slant 6 in it & I bought a Dodge Diplomat & took the 318 & tranny out & put it in that Dodge shortbed with a floor automatic shifter in it. That's my little Rebecca somewhere around 1997/8 era. Those were our summer vehicles. Wife drove a Toyota Celica gt & I drove my F350 7.5L with 9ft plow blade in winter. Rebecca n dad getting ready to go to BoothBay Harbor. Stoney Lobster Run. The belt was for her to hold on to. Rebecca all grown up now.

    I fat fingered the LOL button at work on my phone. While I disagree, the MK1 GTI is an important car for sure.

    Not to discount the Integra at all, I just have seen GTI’s do some amazing things about 15 minutes down the road at Road Atlanta. Unreal handling.

    But the Integra is much much better looking.

    You should ride in a properly set MINI Joe if you think they handle well.
