    If life was a level playing field and we could choose any car from history (sky’s the limit) what would be your dream car?

    Mine would be 1961 Jaguar e-Type Series 1 Coupe. Stunning car and cost just over £2000 new.

    When you look at some of the old cars ( vintage/veteran ) they use in costume dramas, I often think it would be great if they could put a modern engine in some of those cute old cars but sadly I don’t know any of the names of the cars they use in those progs.

    I’d have liked a Veyron though, beautiful beast but sadly no room for a mobility scooter or a rollator in one of those 🙁

    I’d love a 280 Brooklands Capri but with all mod cons like ABS and PAS.

    Great choice Wardy. My first car was a 1.6 Capri L in highlands green and the obligatory vinyl roof. I used to lust after a local Tickford Capri in white. Awesome cars.

    My choice would be my dad’s old Hillman Minx, XCA 818. Beautiful car.
    Same colours as this one.

    ? I will be remembered for nothing but had great fun doing it?

    Certainly wouldn’t say no to a Mark 2 RS2000, although my ropey knees and a manual gearbox & clutch would not make good bedfellows …

    It would have to be a MK1 Escort Mexico for me.

    I wouldn’t want a car from the past, as I genuinely think cars have vastly improved over the years in all respects and I would need retrained how to roll down a window manually.

    The Quattro was indeed a significant car. But of course I can’t help but think ….

    Original Range Rover for me. If it’s good enough for the Louvre it’s good enough for me ?

    And in said level playing field I’d be able to drive it despite it being only available in manual!

    They used an Audi Quattro filming that, But the Audi sport Quattro is a very rare short wheel base tuned version made so Audi could use them as group B rally cars, they only made 200.

    I used to have a thing for rallying and fast Audi’s.
    Now it’s comfort mode and chilling. lol

    For me, it would have to be the original Mk 1 Ford Granada (as used in the first two series of ‘The Sweeney’).

    It would be in Ghia trim level with the 3.0 V6 ‘Essex lump’ engine, with the auto gearbox.

    I had MK1 Granada 3.0 Ghia in white with a black vinyl roof when i was just 21,i thought i was the bees knees cruising around in it.Went on to have a MK2 2.8GL manual but wasn’t as nice imho.

    Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

    It’d have to be the car I learned to drive in, a Chrysler Valiant VH 265 Hemi. 3 Speed column change manual – my dads instructions “Put it into 3rd as soon as you can and just leave it there”.

    He had a series of them, including the enormous stationwagons. Now he drives a Toyota Wish.
