    Show us your 'Racing' car

    This Forum is because we love the F1 race cars from 1967...but what are you actually driving
    Your car doesn't have to be new & not a racing car, would be fun if you really have a 1967 model
    You can tell how many HP your car has & if you like to run fast in reality & more.

    Note: If you upload a picture in the Forum, it will only be members who can see it.

    Starts the thread with a car that unfortunately is not mine, but one of my friends, FIAT 500

    Hope you can find a picture so we can compare. A little fun when I was a kid, our neighbor got one, but not as a station wagon.
    Actually, I don't feel good when I see old Fiat, it always reminds me of my first car I got on my 18th birthday...a Fiat 850 Special. Not quite correct, my first one was on a Friday & was red, discovered the day after it was not a Special model with more HP & got it replaced on Monday...in maybe the ugliest color in the World ...it quickly got double exhaust so you noticed more of the noise
    Rate the color yourself...or guess a color

    Mondeo MK4.5 2014

    Ok, I start...but unfortunately I have no racing car, no matter I try to make it look like one

    The car is a Ford Mondeo MK4 (after 2011 & to 2014 called MK4.5 which now switched to MK5) & this MK4.5 got a little new design & shift from Volvo to PSA engine, an engine made in collaboration between Ford & Peugoet.
    At first, I didn't know if I should cry or laugh when I could see Peugoet in the engine room...on a Ford However, it runs great, especially with V-Power
    The biggest surprise came when I discovered that all Ford (PSA DW10) engine was born with 163HP & whatever you buy a 140HP, 163HP software is still there
    Many things have been changed on mine, LED inside & many things out, Diffuser behind & Ford metal pedals waiting to be put on. Thursday, it got 19" Ford alu rims (a rim I had never seen in reality) fitted with slightly wider tires than Ford recommends: Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 245/40/19
    Pic #2 is taken in Sweden (Barsebäck)...not V-Power, but Nuclear-Power in the background

    Edit: Now with Ford Sport pedal plates aluminum

    Pelle's post looked so lonely here I thought I'd add one...
    Sadly I don't have, nor never had, a 1967 car. The closest I got was my 1976 MG Midget (not mine in the picture). Fond memories
    Currently I am sooo boring in my diesel astra (also not mine in the picture)
    But as for a race car, well this is as close I get

    @Roo: Maybe you made the same mistake as me, only very few or none pics of my old cars
    I've gotten better with my last 3 Mondeo , but who thought of taking photos as a youngster that the cars would be classic & more of them I've had can be driven in GT Legends.
    WOW, your MG is definitely a classic ...great GPL setup with 3 screens

    WOW Ferdi, just what this thread needed & thanks for the links, a pleasure to see your car history

    No, this thread must not only be a race car, but our own 'race car' & your Fiat 127 Sport is a small racer
    I'm surprised your favorite of all your cars was a Citroen Saxo.
    Maybe we are the same age, your first car was in 1973 & this was where I got my first Fiat. It was quickly switched to a 128 & I think in 76 or 1977 to a 128 3P. You switched from Italian to French, where I switched to German (many Ford (2xCapri, 2xTaunus, 3xSierra, 5xMondeo) & 1 Opel, however, also switched 3 times to Volvo) & I stay in German with cars, I have a little dream about trying Mercedes before I die. Yes there is something special about French, but have never had one.
    Your VW, my mother had a 1300 in the 60's, I may have been 10 years & it was the first car I drove alone & first crash
