Boy Racers Dream Car??

When i passed my driving test around 20 years ago, the boy racers car at the time was the old MK11 Escort, it was cheap and readily available in various specifications and lent itself to being modified with relative ease. My first Escort was a 2 door 1.1 Pop which i bought for 30quid! I was in the motor trade so several months and two or three donor cars later it was transformed. We shoe horned a 2litre Pinto engine out of a Cortina, uprated the suspension, brakes, fit alloys and interior etc from the 'donors'. It was the typical wolf in sheeps clothing, i kept the car for about 5 years and then sold it to a work colleague who blew the engine in the first week! Since then i've had a whole host of performance Fords including RS2000, XR2, XR3i, XR4x4, Sierra Cosworth but the one car i would have back would be the old Escort.
What was the boy racer car when you started driving and which car you have owned would you buy back?

QUOTE (daleg @ 17 Sep 2004, 09:13)I would like an Anglia 105E, but only to shoehorn the same 2L pinto in or even a Cosworth lump...............sedate on the outside, mental under the bonnet!!!
My Uncle is a member of the 105e club (he owns three of them) so tend to go to a lot of the meets, anyway the fastest (sensible) 105e i've seen has a Lotus Cortina lump in it and it goes like ****e off a shovle as we found out as it went past us doing over a ton on the M1!
