    A belated hello...

    Hello everyone, so as the title suggests this is a bit of a belated hello due to wanting to make sure I had all the cars in the same place for a group photo, but here goes...

    Bit of background: When I was 17 I took part in a track day at Brands Hatch and one of the cars I had the privilege of driving was a 1991 V8 Soarer. This being the first "proper" car I had driven I came away telling myself that one day I would HAVE to own one of these. With a few years passing by and several insurance quotes latter eventually 5 years past and I was able to afford the Insurance. After viewing a few in my local area a came across a rather dusty but solid TT. Having viewed numerous forums and Ebay adds one name kept popping up, Smiffy at the Soarer Sanctuary. So a trip was soon planned to go up with the intention on buying a new rear lens. However after spending 2 hours soaking up as much knowledge as possible I completely forgot about the lens. Long story short, eventually after several more trips to SSS I bought not one but 2 V8's much to my mums delight now that all 3 are on the driveway.

    But, for a full set, you need a post 1996 VVTi single turbo 2.5, a VVTi 3 litre N/A and, if you can find one, a VVTi V8.....enlarge the garage, quickly.....

    Hi and a big welcome. So you are the mystery buyer!!! What a stable. Which do you choose as daily driver?
    Horsepower is something that looks great in a magazine article but suspension is actually what gets you from A to B fast
