    yes I was just 19 when I bought the Astra and it was an awesome car. I loved the 2 big square exhaust pipes and Recaro seats.

    Man – I love all of the cars you all have owned in the UK.  I would kill to have some of those in the States.  Also agree with blkcat – impressive on the number of cars many you have owned.  Here we go from another happy RS owner in USA.  All daily drivers

    1966 Ford Mustang Coupe 289

    1965 Ford Mustang Fastback – 289 2+2 4 speed

    1998 Ford Mustang GT 5 speed

    2008 Infiniti (Nissan) G35 – got married, bought a house, had two kids…but was missing something so back to the Fords…

    2017 Ford Focus RS

    Nothing is better than rowing gears, and grew up in a ford family my whole life.  Was considering the new Mustang GT, but was hard to put the two child seats in the back plus I just loved how the RS drove.  Family is happy again :).
