"is this the best fun car ?"

i bought a 18 year old xr3i..... 2 long term owners from new......low mileage . all origional..
bought as a fun car for myself...... WOW....... i forgot how much fun cars were...

ok...insurance can be high, but with thatcham approved immobolisers and alarms...... costs are reasonable...( for a 40 yr old ).
cheap to keep running... good consumption and reasonably well built car...... makes a good reliable vehicle .
Why do i think this is a fun car ....... its sporty.... handles well...... smooth gearbox......fairly economical and is not expensive to keep the engine in good condition..
I realise some may have been boy raced....but i was lucky mine had not been....i do get a lot of strange looks from people... but i don't care...
i regularly take the wife and kids out for a drive to the coast....we all like the car... even the harsh ride of the sports suspension , can do nothing to make our journey less enjoyable.
