£5,000 WEEKEND TOY??
Previous | 12 | Next

Hi guys,

New here, looking for advice.

I looking to spend £5,000 on a weekend toy.

It's got to be a drivers car....but it doesn't have to be extreme, I won't always be cracking on.

Just looking for some suggestions I may have over looked or something outside of the box.

Cheers,

MR2

Boxster s, 944 s2/turbo, mk3 mr2 or e36 m3. The rest are too sensible for "toy" status.

Stolen Orions on fire off the hard shoulder of the M8. I watched neds litter in the dark near the Tennents shop. All those... moments... will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears... in... rain. Time... to die...

How about a Porsche 968 or Z3?

Yeah, Z3s are great... 968s are rubbish though.:?

To be more precise, there's only one good Z3 and that's the hunchback, sorry hatchback, sorry M Coupe, but they're going for rather more than £5k I believe.

968 is a very good choice.

I sold (both of) my E36 M3s because they were too sensible !

Best condition Boxtser you can find in budget would be my choice here, as long as you can reconcile yourself to the potential for occasional big bills. Ask Jobbo ;)

I don't think you'll get a Mk1 Elise for £5k. You might get a VX220 (non-turbo) tho.

How about a bit of Beany spanking

As standard they're not special enough for a weekend car, but for £5k you could have a stripped out, coilovered, carbon airboxed car which would be pretty rapid and great fun.

That looks properly nice. Especially with the rear spoiler removed. 8)
