MX5 ND2 is a fab car, I can’t think of selling it even though after buying the Cali it’s an excess vehicle!
Well I'd been looking at the press about them (the GR Yaris) earlier this year and then John Slater's post on here shook me out of my Lockdown 2 torpor and I thought I'd better get one ordered.Excellent. Well jealous!
Sold my 911 to buy the California but do miss driving it and the feel good factor when doing soAs I advance in years and near the time when I can retire I like to think about the car I would treat myself to when I do take my pension.
At the moment the Cali is my everyday and only vehicle. So I would like something for fun. I would still keep the Cali.
Given that I share the same good taste in recreational vehicles ie a Cali I thought it interesting to see what fellow petrol head forum members would choose and why?
My top 3
V8 f type convertible pre face lift
911 992 carrera s convertible
Morgan plus six or four
At the moment- having done a factory tour and various test drive days I confess I’m leaning towards one of the new Morgan’s- why because they are so involving and essentially basic to drive (but oh the f type what looks).
What retirement car “”treat”” would you choose for let’s say under 100k and why?
Great choice, I'd be with you, really miss my S160 Elise that I Honda'd, heel and toe, trail breaking and smashing all the big Euro tracks, makes the Cali feel like death warmed up.Well I'd been looking at the press about them (the GR Yaris) earlier this year and then John Slater's post on here shook me out of my Lockdown 2 torpor and I thought I'd better get one ordered.
Ironically the Toyota 2021 season WRC Rally1 car which the GR was intended to homologate will never see the light of day now (due to covid and the announced WRC switch to hybrids from 2022) so the GR will be one-of-a-kind.
Not for me, I still love driving after more than 50 years and hate the idea of being driven by a person or a robot.Anything chauffeur driven and looking forward, autonomously driven...
Get in, set the controls ( for the heart of the sun) and sit back with a good book...

Well done that man!!!Scrapped the car, kept the Cali, spent the savings on 3 years university for our 2 daughters... That would have bought a very nice new car, or 2 new California’s but when they graduate in 1 ½ years they will at least debt free in a changed world recovering from pandemic and the economic fallout.
I used to have a Viking!...great conversion.I have to confess to having more vehicles than space - California Ocean a keeper, VW T2 bay Viking a keeper, 2007 Maserati Quattroporte auto a keeper then two mercs; an ‘08 E-class 220 going and an ‘03 A-class which will be staying for supermarket and local runs. Love the VWs for their different offering and the Maserati is just a joy!
