I don't mean established classics like E-Types and the like, but run of the mill stuff that's maybe 20 years old give or take, and you still feel odd pangs of desire when you see a nice one.

On the way into work this morning I was overtaken by an absolutely immaculate mk2 Astra GTE 16v. It was finished in that lovely metallic burgundy, and was probably the first one I'd seen for as long as I can remember that looked a) immaculate, and b) as standard as it left the factory. It rode at the correct height, and sported the original "turbine" alloys and the standard square tailpipes. I found myself thinking "what a cracking looking car". I drove one many moons ago and remember a truly magnificent engine and terrifying performance with virtually no traction or handling. I had however long since forgotten it - apart from the odd chavved up one wearing a ridiculous bodykit, they just aren't about any more.

Has this happened to anyone else recently? If so, what car was it?

Cheers

'Rover 2000' with the 3500cc engine, mind you it's about 30 years since they were made last I think.

Peugeot 405 or 205 still look stylish in an understated way. None of the modern bulk you get with the 207 or 407 with their hideous front end look. They also don't rot so much which aids preservation, unlike Vauxhalls and Fords of that era. Hence the rareness of the Astra.
The Astra GTE I remember had the option of the digital dash display, one of the first I think.

Peugeot 305 Estate- I owned one of them over a period of 16 years and 279K miles. I was very sorry when it finally gave up the ghost. (2001)
Good looking, comfortable, roomy and with excellent handling- better balanced than the saloon version.

Ditto. I had a J-reg Mi16 in metallic blue. What a great car, handling was brilliant; but sadly mine was in terminal decline when I got rid at 120k miles. Seen one or two about since and had pangs of nostalgia; would have another one but it would have to be in better nick than mine was!

Not wanting to be a pedant but the Rover 2000 was just that ie 2000cc.

Most Peugeots (maybe excepting 204, 304) before the design team got drunk..... original 205 XS is gorgeous. Or the Roland Garros model in green, although I might be coloured in that by the fact that a nearby beauty owned one and therefore I was always pleased to see it on the road...

Original Mk 3 Escort, plain, unadorned..... didn't like the fussier later ones. Original jellymould Sierra, but only in Ghia form. Remember the hideous basic version? Yuk.... I also liked the 2.0iS (1986ish). Cavalier Mk 3 SRi in black and white

1970-75 Opel Manta in burgandy with Rostyles please - I see one parked outside a house in the middle of nowhere quite often, in mint condition and it just looks so right.

Agree on the SD1 Vitesse - a car for men who feel inadequate if ever there was one!
I see a V8 VDP auto in gold quite regular burbling down to the local stables - in very fine condition it is too. The V8 SD1 is still quite numerous for such an old car and has a high survival rate.
Theres still over a thousand of them on the road compared to less than 100 2.0 litre versions and I think it was 9 Turbo Diesel ones. Not sure about the 2300/2600.

I rather like the Lancia Thema for some reason, just such an understated car although ive never even driven one!

Yes - I always liked the big old Rover 3.5 litre .

A company one that I took up the M11 not long after it opened showed me my highest ever 'on the road' speed with me driving at an indicated 130 mph.

I also like the Reliant Scimitar GTE ( although hardly a common motor ) and the Dolomite Sprint , both of which I drove in the seventies and give me that nostalgia twinge.

Yes that always put me off the Mk.2 Manta a bit (I was a car mad teenager at the time, I never drove one); looked great but only had the 2.0 4-cyl engine, when Capris had the V6 option. If they had put the 2.5 or 3.0 Senator straight six in the Manta it could have been a monster!

As mentioned above, the early '70's Mantas looked cool too. My Grandad had one, then sold it and bought a Mk.2 Capri 3 litre Ghia...

Jaguar XJ12.
I had the pleasure of frequently driving one when they were in production.

"Only made from 1975 to 1977, the 2-door vinyl topped pillarless coupe was probably one of the best looking touring car made by Jaguar. The XJC's were known as the world's fastest vinyl roof and were unique in their styling and complexity. "

In those days it was deemed unacceptable to have louvres on such a saloon.
The engine bay got so hot that the battery was in a box with its own fan.

Glad I'm not the only one who still likes the Scimitar GTE. It may only be from the era when I was young, but I prefer the later SE6/6a/6b versions, with moulds created by chopping the predecessor's in four and adding extra length and width.

Apart from maybe the Volvo 480 and BMW Z3 M Coupe, there hasn't really been anything similar since, although I'm not sure about the looks of the latter.

IIRC, it was also the first mainstream car to be fitted with a rear wiper (because the distinctive back window used to accumulate dirt easily) and split folding rear seats.

XJC was one of my dream cars when I was in my early teens. Unfortunately my PC's speakers dont do that clip justice.
In the '90's I bought a copy of Fast Lane magazine that had a cassette tape of the sound of various cars going round Brands Hatch.

My uncle had a red Strada Abarth 130 TC when I was a kid. It looked and sounded the dog's wotsits at the time. I cannot remember the last time I saw a Strada on the road.

He bottled it when the warranty came towards its end and sold it on. He still talks about it today as one of the most exciting and infuriating cars he's ever owned. Reckons the longest it went without a breakdown or garage visit was 3 weeks, but it was an absolute peach of a car when it worked.

Was going to mention I saw an early '90's Audi S4 saloon a few weeks ago. Subtle and understated, looked much like a standard 100 but for the slightly lowered stance and fat (but not excessively low profile) tyres filling the arches nicely. A great Q-car, cost a fortune when new but can now be had for a few grand. Its not so much the looks as the turbo 5-pot engine that interests me. I'd have one of them or an S2 coupe if there was room on our drive.
