All this 90's stuff got me all misty eyed so I had to look up the old Honda Integra 16v - the first of the 'hot' Integras - and see if anyone was still driving them. They are. This car (in the clip below) is the same model and engine as my old beast, and does the sound of that engine reving to 7000rpm+ bring back some memories......

Now, if only my Citroen C5 sounded like that, much less drove like that, I may even crack a smile. Says something about modern 'ish' cars when a 22 year old hot hatch still appeals:


Just to think, 20 years ago I used to drive round Cheshire like that, earning the nickname 'Nigel' from the lads in the traffic unit of Cheshire Police (who would enjoy spending a few mins chasing me down before I let them pull me over - just for a friendly chat and to discuss cars - no speed cameras or default speeding tickets back then.........oh those were the days.

Already spent an unmentional sum buying the car! Currently in for a "wet Buff" to try to turn some of the pink back to red!
