After driving some of the latest hot hatches - Fiesta ST, GR Yaris - I have a newfound appreciation of small cars.

Those two are real giant killers.

Unfortunately your one isn't the one in my hands right now. Jeez, that would've been crazy awesome when you knew you won?

Do cars of similar colour hang out together ?

When I had my GTI there were 3, maybe 4 Shadow Blue GTI in town.

IMHO, I think the original Mk.5 was the most modern radical car in 2005, hence most classic.
So good in red.
Too many tickets.....
