do you mean 'bump start' where you let the clutch go when you're rolling along, and the car bumps itself alive?

nice integra, like the ally's! keep it simple and dont ruin it with bodykits or awful spoilers...


just a note on the bump/clutch start... if you do it, you will pump fuel through the exhaust system that once the car is started... will burn in the catalytic converter and could make it break away inside! i was forced to bump it once when i had no jump leads, now i need a new cat as there are pieces of it bouncing around inside my muffler!

I thought you were a fellow Brit from your Intro and all the terminology lol....funny stuff. Love the Golf, I have a MK2 1.6 Driver, only has 88,000miles on it which is nothing for a Golf I'm sure you'll agree. Sorry, no pics at the moment though...I'm also not sure on your theory about Bump starting, I've done it numerous times on numerous cars, old and new, with no problems

Oh yeah...and I'm against Boy Racers, too lol...

By the way, I merged the other thread with this one as it was posted in the wrong place and was getting old....so apologies if this one appears a bit confusing lol

Also....it was aerith who sarted the original Thread wasn“t it?....I just though this merger thingy had got the better of me and it screwed everything u lol

Here are mine...

The '81 Fiat 124



The '02 PT Cruiser



Our '88 Range Rover (bought for $825)



My wife liked the old Rangie so much I bought her this '95 LWB for Christmas...



And of course, my '63 Comet convertible project (on hold while I gather parts and build a new garage)



And the engine that is going into it:



And last but certainly not least is our '72 Winnebago motorhome. A fun classic.



The PT is for sale, and the Fiat will be come springtime. The old Rangie wil be kept around as a work truck, and I'm hoping to replace the PT with a BMW 740i Sport or '91-92 M5.
