DavidB yes i think you are being bias as my skoda obviously looks much much nicer :)

 

cash68 actually you're wrong, the skoda felicia is based on the same floorpan as the skoda favorit, which was an all skoda designed vehicle (pre vw), also this felicia has the original (pre vw) skoda 1.3 engine, so it's basically the last of the pure skodas, apart from a bosch injection unit and some vw updated interior.

Huh. Weird. Well, they share VW switches, engines, steering wheels, and the design was influenced by VW... so... who knows. It looks like VW just repackaged one of their successful body styles to me. >shrug<

 

Either way, cool car.

well a lot of the new models are just that. but this is a skoda felicia, trust me - it's a skoda favorit (pre vw) with an updated skin, and a 136 engine (pre vw). Therefore skoda fans etc regard this as the last true skoda.

That last picture is hilarious. A guy taking a photo of a guy taking a photo of a guy who's broken down who's looking back with an expression of "Gee thanks for helping Mr. Photographer!"

 

haha. Classic.

Heh, a high octane bunch of designers here that's for sure!

 

small update on my scoot.. trusty commute pal :)

20071022002.jpg

 

 

maaan, I want a zoomer sssooo much!

 

Fel in love with them first time I saw one.

 

They cost around £2400 -$4800 which is just way more than I can afford so its looking very unlikely :ermm:

 

Yeah, they're pricey..

 

I messed around with it a bit more.. it'll have discbrakes on the front soon with a matching rim :)

I ordered a 2007 CBR600RR this past weekend. I'll be picking it up in March (too much snow around here to ride until then). Can't wait... :)

 

Photo from the motorcycle show last weekend:

I experienced this beauty of a friend..110 ps 120 somethin in kg..the ratio is impressive I felt the power :).

Why didn't you just get a new transmission?

Those are cool...but I still don't understand them for the price. Why didn't you just get a motorcycle?
