    Yeah, it never ceases to put a smile on my face, the noise on start-up is like a dirty old muscle car. :D

    Bought it a couple of years back cheap as my Vixen is being restored, (see earlier in the thread), and fell in love with it. Went down to Aix-En-Provence in it in 2014, not something I'd want to do again (you suddenly realise how big France is, but in a deafening car) but it didn't miss a beat.

    Sits outside, gets used every weekend, 30+ mpg and nothing but positive reactions from people. :)

    Not my favourite car in the whole world but can appreciate the engineering excellence that goes into it. I this saw this crawling over Battersea Bridge this morning :D

    existentialist Spartacus? No, never heard of him.

    Having had the gypsy's warning from the garage on the Celica ("don't expect to get it through another MOT"), I'm getting quite a thing for its successor. Now, where to get my hands on £11k or so...?

    86s are great but, when stock, they look like they've been set up for the Rally of Finland and ride very high. They need the Eibach 25mm lowering kit installed as a matter of urgency. The US spec rear lights look loads better and are another worthy mod. Maybe OZ 17 x 8 rims as well. Go for it!

    There are not many cars that have me instinctively looking at them and going "ooh!", before I realise what they are. The GT86 does that, as did the Gen 6 Celica before it. The Gen 7 (my current wheels) less so.

    The engine out of a Ferrari 458 sort of fits in the 86.

    I stopped to see one of these huge things driving around the mean wild streets of Chelsea yesterday. So classical, elegant and quintessentially British. So not like the modern Bentleys.

    No snobbery with it these days, more of a classic.

    High Voltage Laying in the gutter, looking at the kerb.

    I suppose, there alright, if you like "that kind of thing"

    But this, with the sound turned up, shows what you can cobble together in a garage



    And also is my preferred brand of niche car porn

    Not the fastest car in the world, not the most modern or technologically advanced, but dam pretty, a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB 4. If only I had the money

    The car has soft lines as opposed to the lines of an aventador or f40. I think it suits a soft colour.
    i could not say no.

    Shyestyoka stanced shakotan style. I mean, it will destroy both itself and its occupants after traveling 500m on Russian roads but it's kind of cool.
