I love my V8 and nothing has gone wrong in a whole year of motoring....at the weekends....

Just thought I'd kick off here before all the looneys arrive wibbling about superchargers, tail slides and best drain pipes to deafen oneself with.... :stirer: :lol: :scared:

Zeb, I know how you feel. I wish I would have be able to keep that V8 I once had for a day. Lovely car.

V8's are great, as long as you have a everyday car to run around in.

"My lovely car now sold onto a very happy new owner.
I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

V8s are great as every day cars as well ...













... as long as you don't have to pay European petrol prices. :roll:

Interestingly....dare I say it?....I prefer the ZT-T V6 for everyday motoring....lighter,handles better, better balance, more forgiving.... :stirer:



Having said all that....the V8 is better built in some respects and has a real 'presence'...even when just sitting in her.....or was that the beans? :D

Anyway she makes me grin like nowt else has managed to....well....ok maybe ONE person has managed to produce the same sort of stupid grin.... :gmc:


Still wouldn't want to be without her......cos someone else would then be spending all the petrol dosh saved.... :shock:

Wouldn't be without mine either - one exhaust gasket failed in 2 years of ownership, other costs just service parts

Silly grin appears as soon as I fire her up



Disppears for a while every time I pull into a filling station

Hi Mike, about time you gave it another airing. Benwick area is quite a nice place to test out handling. :)

Hello Mike....good to see you here...Benwick is all very well for checking out your handling until you come off the road and drown... :lol:

lol, 15 minutes on here and I've already wet myself (metaphorically speaking of course). It all feels very good. My daily drive is now a OVLOV S40 D5 (the dark side) which goes like stink thanks to near 200bhp in a smallish car hee hee. Getting in the V8 after the D5 is pure auditory pleasure :D

Cheers

Mike

ps Benwick..............? Is that on the coast then ;)

No, but it is below sea level. :D You're thinking of Brancaster. Now that's a place to get wet. :D

Mine is nice and quiet too!
Had a few withdrawal symptoms after 6 weeks cold turkey in the V6 though. :panic:
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Just means you're not driving the V8 properly - built to be driven - HARD
