The theory that the people who read Any Given Reason typically drive the kinds of cars that we’re all interested in is the thinking that initially lead to the first Any Given Reason Burger Meet. Unfortunately it’s not possible to hold Burger Meet’s all the time, so why not a virtual Burger Meet?* A few weeks ago the word was put out, and since then I’ve received a huge variety of readers’ rides to post. So here we go!
If you missed out this time, email me a shot of your ride for next time – email@example.com
*Actual burgers not available at the Virtual Burger Meet
Brady – 2006 Mazda MX-5 NC. I’m turning 40 next month and my beautiful wife allowed me to purchase a 2006 NC MX-5. She and I love it and the lifestyle it has given us. My plans for it are to eventually do some track work, some hillclimbs and maybe a tarmac rally (regularity) in the future.
Simon – 1969 Renault 8 Gordini. It is one of sixty 8 Gordini’s assembled by Renault Australia between 1967-1969, and one of twenty cars assembled in 1969 painted Daffodil Yellow. Originally they were only for sale to CAMS license holders (though a couple slipped through) and were intended for competition purposes, even beating the newly formed Holden Dealer Team to win the 1970 Australian Rally Championship. My car was originally sold by Renault Australia on Anzac Highway (cnr South Rd where the Home Improvement Centre now is) to a member of the old Renault Car Club of SA, who held a CAMS license. I’ve had it for 20 years, the furtherest trip it has done was Tasvegas in 2011.
Taylor – Volkswagen Golf Mk1. This is my vw mk1 golf which I have built up from a bare shell, loads of goodies and mods, full cage, poly carb windows etc and at the heart of it is a rebuilt and worked 1.8 twin cam on twin 45mm webers.
Andy – Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V. I like the fact that my road car is faster than my racecar… pointless but entertaining on the drive to work!
Glenn – Ford Escort Mk1. A labour of pure love. (note – longtime AGR readers may remember their epic engine-changing antics during Targa a few years back)
Shaun – Ford Falcon EB gravel rally car. It’s so much fun.
David – 1988 Peugeot 205 GTI. It’s raw and feels much faster than it actually is, but isn’t that the point?
David – 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 6.5 TME. It’s probably the closest thing to a road going WRC car you can buy.
