    Thumbs up Added a new car to the stable

    Last year we sold my wife's 2001 Honda Prelude and have been looking for a car to replace it. In the interim we purchased a 1993 Toyota Camry but, with 128,000 miles the Camry is starting to show its age. We have looked at everything from Toyota Corollas to Ford Five-hundreds and nothing has grabbed my wife's attention like this little car. From the first test I could tell my wife was hooked as the grin from ear to ear could not be hid (notice last pic). I have to admit this is one of the easiest and most fun cars I have ever had the pleasure of driving. Well without further adieu please meet Jacques. Well it's a British car made by Germans so a French name is fitting.










    It's nice to see my so enthusiastic about a car. Hope you all don't mind a Mini parking with the Snakes.

    1.6 liter 168hp supercharged engine with air to air cooler. I believe it is the Eaton M45 but may be the 90. Pulley changes look like a PITA but I'll manage.

    They are some really nice cars. When I had a BMW there were always a bunch on track with us at events and those little suckers can handle with very little mods.
