That's a lovely pate on that blue one.

Is it a C2 VTS by any chance? :lol:

That car would look good next to mine ;)

Ahh right, so it might well be a VTS then :)

Reminds me of the Pug 205STDT. Basically a 205GTi with the XUD7T (1.8 turbo diesel) engine...

Funny thing was, it was faster and livelier than a 205GTi. Their performance was almost scary! I had one for a while... Utterly brilliant little cars and fun with a capital F :D

Another well-kept secret, Jim. Everyone raved about the 205GTi. I honestly didn't know the turbodiesel existed.

Anyone see this nice looking green Activa on ebay?

If I didn't already have one car too many I definitely would!

I'm sure that's been listed a few times by that seller over the years. Tempting...

I've had a bid on it :) it's local to my brother. It's also the same colour as the mint one I had that my missus smashed up!
