356,000 miles, 8 owners, been to Italy and back (?).
2.85L Diesel, 3spd (gah) autobox. Rust.
Unbelievably proficient at pulling art school girls (might have something to do with the fact that other Fairway drivers include Stephen Fry, Kate Moss and Stanley Kubrick...)

1995 BMW 325 TDS SE (143 diesel horsies, 5 speed) daily driver & 1975 Triumph Toledo 1300 (60hp of english rwd granny car fury) rally car.

Parked outside my parents house - I don't own caravan, honest!

The BMW looking loved for once, it now has its original 15" wheels, clear corners and roofrack. The roofrack is staying but it should have 17" M3 wheels soon.

I inherited the triumph from my dad, after he discovered it had chronic rust at the subframe mounts and bought an equally rusty dolomite. It is now fixed, and I've driven my first classic rally in it. I'll do a thread sometime maybe.

1996 MR2 (mine is on the right)

Was a completely bone stock uk spec car (uk spec cars are non turbo only, but there are plenty of grey import turbos about), until I got a great deal on a jdm (yo) gen2 3sgte rear clip which went in along with the turbo gearbox and lsd.

Other things include

Celica ST205 GT4 A2W Intercooler
Gen3 CT20b turbo
Gen3 speed density conversion
Berk tech downpipe
A tiny oil leak I just cant seem to get rid of
Silly looking jdmu exhaust (to be replaced with a different slightly less silly looking fujitsubo exhaust)
Ohlins struts + stupid kg/mm springs (to be replaced with eibachs or trd us spec springs)
trd front and rear antirollbars
polybushes allround
Buddyclub wheels for the warmer weather

Next up
Buy a beater as driving 300+ miles a week is kinda killing the fun of the car
Get a gen3 motor like I should have in the first place
TD06 or GT28 turbo + standalone ems (already have) and ebc
Possibly a respray if I havent totalled it at a trackday next year

Waiting on body work and loads of track bits. Stock interior and apart from the wheels and ride height, stock outside.

Poly-bushed everything, pipercross intake, straight through exhaust.

Waiting on
- BBTB, chip and tune
- Ireland Engineering manifold
- Gaz coilovers
- Some sort of brake upgrade and SS lines
- LSD and 'box refresh
- Bodywork
- Quick 'rack, smaller Mtech 2 steering wheel

That was done on E85 and the map sensor is delayed on this dyno, so it shows the turbo being much more laggy than it really is (stock IX turbo).

The daily driver:

1990 Civic STD. Complete with primer hood/bumpers, faded paint, built B18c swap, Integra brakes, and Skunk2 Pro coilovers. Its a terribly rough ride, but it gets 38mpg and puts a smile on my face daily. Totally worth the future back problems and ruptured kidneys.

91 Hilux 3.0 3vze / 5 spd. A 900 dollar truck that I've now put new : Clutch, flywheel, throwout / pilot, rear end, bearings, leaf springs, all new bushings in the back, and more. I've now also bought a class III hitch and a set of Sway-a-way 25mm torsion bars for it.

Not enough lovely cars on here.

1998 Ford Windstar GL

3.8L V6 (200 hp) mated to one of the worst auto transmissions Ford has ever produced. Small dent behind the marker light. Not pictured: ENORMOUS dent on the driver's side fender where a school bus hit it. Twice. I refuse to get the dents fixed, the van's too beat up to care about aesthetics at this point, and I see it as a battle scar. That and I'm too cheap to bother. Perfect for hauling all the poo poo I don't need but desperately want to have with me at all times.

2007 Subaru Legacy GT Limited 5 speed:

Picture the PO took before I picked it up. Only "investments" I've made have been a blanked out grill (no logo/chrome) and summer/winter tires.

He already debadged the rear, only thing left is the Subaru logo. It's very a subtle car but can get up and go when you need it to. I love it.

Trying to keep it under warranty right now so I think the only things I can do are a CAI and catback exhaust. I'll probably pick up an AccessPort at some point and just flip it back to stock before I take it into the dealer.
