Are there automobile enthusiasts in this community, or rather, classic car enthusiasts who are looking for like-minded people. I would be very happy to meet you.

Hi Everyone! I've been into classic cars since I was a teenager. I've owned a lot of classics over the years but due to financial problems in recent years all I have now is a lowly 1997 SAAB 900S convertible. I have to admit its been very reliable unlike my previous car, a JAG XK8 which enjoyed rollback rides more than it should. 

Here are a few classics I've owned over the years.

@daveinva Great collection. Congratulations. I also have a Maserati Biturbo 420 SI. I find this car very beautiful, but unfortunately this car is anything but maintenance friendly (so expensive) and unfortunately a vulnerable electrical system. My cars all have a name and this car is called "Prima Dona". 🙂

I use to be a VAG and JLR tech in the UK. I did plan to do track days around Europe. If I can get hold of e fuel and a dyno? I have three cars Mk2 Golf, Mk2 Scirocco and B3 Audi coupe Quattro 7a motor, but that one is still in the UK.

@i5q I used to be an area manager for Alfa Romeo and Diahatsu in the UK so a fellow Motor Trade worker, if you are passing Ericeira call in and we can talk cars and I can tell you about track days here.

@pipfinder Thank you for the offer, Next year I might head to the coast. I haven't done any trackdays yet since I been in Portugal but in the UK I use to live 30min from Donington Park, then I moved to Surrey Goodwood, Brooklands Brands etc. I'm looking forward to the chat.

@i5q Hello, I am also one of those who would like to organize an interesting vintage car tour with a few sporty interludes. Since I see that you are in Castel Branco, I would like to invite you to visit me. I am in Marvao, near Portalegre. An hour drive, which is very nice. But maybe I'll just drop by so we can meet in person. This offer is of course also for Colin.
