Profile for user 130rapid - Country: Poland

[Image: 130rapid_awc.awatary-1408052291-2-100-100.jpg]

I'm journalist, made in model year 1976 ;) , daily working for local title, monthly for ClassicAuto.
Member of BMW AutoKlub Poland and oldtimer section of Automobilklub Wielkopolski.

I had been falling in love to postwar and later strange cars.
That's why my US No.1 is Chevrolet Corvair II. :P

I own "antiques": 03/1983 Skoda Garde (Pra-Rapid) and 10/1983 BMW E28 525e. Skoda - my first car - is dusty "mummy" now. Wait for full renovation. Around 2001 she looked that:

5er preserves zero-rust condtion, thanks to 23 years in Monte Carlo climate and keeping away salty & dirty winter roads in Poland. Monte Carlo parking (no) rules gave few scratches and dents at original body panels with factory Opalgrün metallic paint. Too bad. :/ After some treatments on mechanical organs (due to past owner's too short and sloooooow-moooootion trips), then gently run-in, deeper breathing on +100 km journeys, she runs very well now as silent, brisky, surefooted cruiser, with outstanding mileage when you drive middle-fast and fluently (just 7 l/100 km - 40 mpg UK / 33.6 mpg US - is easy to reach at 110 km/h cruising speed; oldie powered by petrol 2.7-litre engine matted with automatic tramission). She serves legendary sheer driving pleasure in pure saute form..

I keep in dry, do basic maintenance/service and excerise friend's 1989 Tatra 613-3 and 1982 FSO Polonez 1500. Polonez has factory form (paint include) still, some nice natural patina signs and he (not she) runs good. Poor Tatra after nutty life needs rather palliative care.

My excellent Long-Range Coach is 03/2000 Citroen Xantia 1.8-16V.

The elegant, wedged lines by Bertone make a deep impression today yet. ;)

Xantia has pet-cat character. When you are tired after work, rest on chair, it comes silently, jumps gently on knees, once licks your hand, warms up legs and murmurs. But when you rouse suddenly, it jumps down and walks away offended.

And one of the best thing for daily, gently, go-around-chimney cruises: 2014 MY Toyota Yaris HSD.

Actually very analogue little car with amazingly cunning power unit(s). Slient, comfortable, gives free hands & long-term average fuel consumption under 4 l/100 km (over 70.6 mpg UK / 58.8 mpg US). If you choose local roads and finesse your drive the outstanding score just over 3 l/100 km is possible. :sun:
