All the videos are on my stepdad’s phone, so I have to upload to YouTube but he’s technologically challenged haha. As soon as I do though I’ll definitely post here

I just had a great thought. I wonder if I could get a good deal on an exhaust if I buy it straight from the factory when I visit next year. I’ll buy it it’s own plane seat and everything  :grin:

I’m not 100% sure. Since it was a BMW group we got put together in the “not BMW” class. I was a class C since I had no modifications.

I actually just found these pics from the event on Facebook

That’s me

what is he going to be doing in the states?

He's got job interviews with Space X, Google self driving cats (yes I know its typo but it made me giffle) and Tesla. His expertise is migrating computer simulations to real world applications.

So, earlier this month I made decision to send my lovable Alfa Romeo to the eternal highway in the sky.
Oil leaks, rust, electrical issues, brakes, suspension.....and EU-safety checks this winter. Just not worth it.
:'(

A few days later I went south to collect this little thing.

Peugeot 206 1.4l

Got it for a low price. Needs a little mostly cosmetic work. Great little engine and fantastic handling.
I really want to take it to a track some time.

No, they were pushed out of the market during the 70s. You don't see many at all.

Could be for a number of reasons, but I wonder, is the reason for them being pushed out of the market have anything to do with the quality of French brands? :P

I've never owned a French car (just Fiat and Volkswagon) but they have a...reputation around here.  :-\

It was a push by the then Big Three to limit competition. German and Japanese brands were already making headway and they didn't want the French getting a piece of the pie too. So they lobbied to have specific features regulated out of existence in the US.

I think the first generation BMW Mini had a French transmission. It’s why my last one failed spectacularly.
