I dunno, my favourite car is a Mitsibushi Lancer Evo v. The best bit is i have actually driven the rally version.
My other dream car is a pontiac Firebird with the Golden firebird on the bonnet.

How do you define classic cars? When you say classic cars I immediately think of the first car that was ever made and I think...NOPE! NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

Personally I prefer modern cars. I stay clear of cars most of the time anyways as I can't drive yet even though I oh so badly want to! I love being in cars but I don't know anything about them.

Anyways, bye bye!

I have a saxo which is only 4 years old. Already in its short life the computer has broken and cost £600 to fix, something is wrong with the steering/wheel axle, it leaks heavily in the boot from an undisclosed source when it rains, the doors dont shut properly and the list goes on and on.

Give me an old ford anyday i am sure it would be better than my car!
Doesn't really matter what the eye is seeing
cos i'm in love with the inner being

Exactly I have modern cars because im a taxi driver and have to and every time something goes wrong its the computer
Why cant they leave them mechanical beats me
Older cars run better in my opinion
One time you could lift the bonnet and 5 minutes later and away you go
With modern cars its off to a computer programmer and pay 600 pound like saz said :x

I like both types of cars, but older cars are better to drive! When i passed my test a few months ago, all my family clubbed in to buy me a Y reg Ford Focus and i can say that i have only driven the car about 20 times. I'd much prefer to drive my dads old G reg Volvo 480 thats been in the garage for about 5 years (he cant bare to part with it).
