    Boy racers just make me think:

    Chavs
    Swearing
    Smoking
    Fights
    **** cars
    Meetings at McDonalds at midnight

    Just all the things I hate about people. I agree, blame them for the high insurance!

    Can you afford to pay insurance monthly? Or Have a parent own and insure the car and then add you as a named driver?
    hahaha, at my local mcdonalds loads of boy racers meet up late at night. One night, after me and my gf stopped off for a couple of big macs, one followed us out of the car park and almost ran me off the road... over taking me going ROUND A CORNER!! What a ****.

    p.s heres a list of their cars: Clio, Saxo, Micra and Corsas... the usual ****.

    Must be wrong with that list at the bottom because if theres ONE thing we've established its that Corsas are NOT driven by chavs.

    I believe the torsion bar rear suspension was pioneered in the Mini, was it not? One of the first, at any rate. The very same suspension that Mr ADotC will have in the back of his Corsa :p:
    For what it's worth, torsion bar rear suspension was being used long before the mini... it was in 1930s Beetles for a start

    Actually yeh that's another typical thing they do, drive like dicks!!

    And you are sooo right abut the cars, I might argue about the micras though... aren't they a bit too **** for racers?

    I knew a guy once, and you know how there are clio sports... well he bought a normal clio and the sport badge!!! Then put the badge on the wrong side of the car :cool:

    I love this thread. It makes me happy.

    Thanks for the rep JC, I now have THREE gems!

    I was having a conversation with a mate of mine the other day about our ideal 5-car garage, and neither of us could name one car where we wouldn't want the classic equivilant. For example, my modern garage would be as follows...

    Jaguar XKR (old model)
    Range Rover Sport
    Lotus Elise
    Jaguar XJR (old model)
    Transit for hauling music equipment around

    Though I would much, much, much rather have the following list, at maybe half the cost, if not less:

    Jaguar E-Type Coupe
    Land Rover Series IIa
    MGB V8
    Daimler Double Six
    Transit Mk.1

    Boy racers? Hmmm I think the "boy" sums them up not man enough for a real car!

    As for little chav cars, while I'd love to say something I feel I can't driving a gold, body kitted car. At least it drives the right wheels.

    Only ... mine came chavved from factory -




    80's cars = too cool for skool ... Corsas = made for little boys still at school.

    Not wanting to start an argument or anything but i'm not sure i agree with everything being said here.
    Sure there are 17 year olds flying around in body kitted cars making themselves look like idiots and giving others a bad name. On the other hand there are a similar number of 17 year olds in normal non modified cars that drive in exactly the same manner.
    Whereas there are people with body kitted cars, alloys, bigger exhausts etc who don't do it to wind people up, that don't race around through town centres at night. They do it because they want to have a nice car, something to be proud of.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    For example that is my car, but i dont race around in the middle of the night, i dont overtake for the sake of it but instead drive around sensibly and at speed limits because i'd like to keep driving it and not look at it standing on my drive with no licence to drive it.

    Why have you posted a pic of the driver under his car? Surely he should be super imposed into the pic itself with him standing proudly next to his pride and corsa (they bring me no job you see)... Not ****ging it off, i just don't personally like them!

    Why the stereotype? I know more people that have standard cars that drive around like loonies and as a result i won't get in their cars. But obviously because i have a modified car i must be a boy racer and a chav and try to drive around everywhere as fast as physically possible.
    This really isn't the case and i am not the only one either.

    What? A Nova GSI? lol...

    Try having a look through this thread somewhere and read up on just a couple of my cars! Not to mention my bikes!

    I thank you

    Lets face it, you ain't Ronaldo (although he is also a prize pr*ck) and you ain't going to be tonking around in an Aston Martin DBS when you're my age either so don't give people on here your psychic crap about what you WILL be driving around in when you're a bit older because for all we know you could get hit by a bus tomorrow and end up driving f*ck all!
