I had my eye on a couple of MK1 XR2's in the summer. The good ones sell very quickly, I'll get one at some point.

I had a black XR2 and a Metallic Blue one.

Are the Capri's going for good money now?

Not sure on the Quattro, it could be but not too sure.


The other car is a R32 Golf. I don't think the A1 Quattro is at a price that is right, but certainly in a few years time, it will be a good car for the future. Only 333 worldwide will make it a very rare beast to see.

I am on the look out for a current car that is getting rave reviews, and is in limited numbers. I will note it for when I do get a car in several years time. my current favourites are the 1 series M Coupe, and Porsche Boxster Spyder.

I was never a big fan of the Capri so don't keep an eye on prices tbh.I'd imagine the rare models command good prices.I do like the MK1 Capri.

Awesome little cars, the noise when the VTEC cuts in is addictive.

I did an inspection this week on a CRX, J plate thingy, I couldn't believe how much the dealer paid for that. Having said that, the car had been dry stored for many years and was in exceptional condition, it certainly had not had a hard life. I'm sure that little car will only go up in value.

What year is your Civic?

I think the 92 models can have the cat removed and not affect the MOT, they do go better without the cat.

Eight years ago I had a Corolla GT coupe AE86, the rear wheel drive one. It was standard and mint, kept in the garage and was never allowed to see rain.

My local Toyota dealer who serviced it every year told me to never sell it.

Unfortunatley I wanted something else and sold it, quite happy that it had trebled in value.

Wish I had kept that one, people go nuts for them now and most have been modified into drift cars, you just don't see standard ones for sale.

This is getting me depressed, I've had quite a few that I wish I'd never sold.

I wish i had kept and not modified a Red Mk3 Mini Cooper S that i owned back in 1981.
It was on a very rare 1971 K plate, only around 800 final production Mini Cooper S Mk3s were manufactured on K registrations, something i did not know or realise the significance of when i had ownership of it.

The Mk3 Mini was the first one not to have the hinges on the outside.
Ive only ever seen three for sale since 1981, and all of them command serious money of £30000 or more.
Its only in the last decade or so that classic minis, especially the desirable early Coopers have gone through the roof.
In 1999 you could have bought a nice Cooper S for around £10-11000.
In todays market, those cars are making over £20000 and some models over £30000, if you can find a good one.
