@AMGfan- I meant the Ford Focus,(Caio's car) as I have the little Honda hatchback. It is fun to drive-you must really enjoy it! :wink:

sergiogon- nice ride! Is that a new Honda? It looks great.

I don´t have a car.
But I drive my dad´s car very very often.

Skoda Forman (combi version of Favorit)
1289cc 4cylinder FWD
40KW @ 5000 RPM
98NM @ 3000 RPM

Modified to run on LPG too, so it´s very cheap to run. It´s rusty, lazy (maybe laziest from this community), but one of the most reliable cars I know :redface: and I like it. One day I want to buy BMW E34 or E36

New Zealand driver

I did have a mini bike (a chopper Harley :fwd: Not a Harley Chopper more like a chopper hardly - could hardly get up the hills ) for some years just to research small vehicles but really that little bike was a bit scary near Mac truck in Auckland and I'm sure I shouldn't have even been on the road with it although it is the smallest vehicle in New Zealand that can be registered for the road 49cc.
I fell a lot saver in the BMW Z3 and on the Suzuki 1400 Cavalcade called "Chocolate" cos` you know what Chocolate does huh..? (makes you feel like your in love) and it seems red is the flavour of the month ... if your down in Cambridge Aotearoa, with a bike come for a ride we can do the town or the country on the weekends.

WOOW Fifty!!!

That's the hell of a nice car! I would change the bumpers and rims to the ones from Vauxhall though ;)

Subject to change.
I'm having a Corvette supercharger fitted to one of these at the moment.

Great car! Despite im not a fan of this new series, prefer the one that was just like the vauxhall... The first E series...
That with a S/C is going to be even more powerful than the W427 isn't it?

The Series II has put a lot of people off, even on the HSV web forums, they're not all that well liked. The supercharger fitment was only supposed to take a couple of weeks, but it's taking far longer because they're updating the LS3 with LS9 components too, for more power and response. By the end of its surgery, it'll be roughly the same engine that's in the Corvette ZR1, 638 horsepowers and 604 ft-lb torque in that, so it'll be 600+ at least, which will make it more powerful than the W427.
This is a car that I bought wanting to keep it completely standard, and absolutely as HSV designed it...
