    Most unusual... Got a few contestants that I've seen live myself. Not in any particular order:

    Pretty much stock El Camino, 350cid V8, automatic, footpedal e-brake hard in use.

    Fwd Corolla converted to rwd, Sierra V6 engine with Eaton SC, stuff sticking out through the bonnet.

    Toyota Carina, Mercedes 5-cylinder turbodiesel engine and tons of mad scientist stuff all over, does really well with it too

    The Sierra P100s were a nice sight, walton smith smoked the shit out of one years back which was cool to see. It's hard to think of something different now. I liked my Opel Kadett, never saw anything like it at a drift day. I'm 110% bored with seeing any nissan, toyota bladeblabla going sideways now. Infact, I'm more impressed by seeing an S chassis NOT drifting now.

    Was looking on the bay lastnight and came across an old Opel GT..... stunning little thing, and seen a few modded ones and they look well pimp!! the one on ebay is spairs or repair, as it's stripped out inside and needs a spray job!

    My convertible Onevia, there arent anymore of those in Europe. And its pretty and drifts good ;) :D

    The ones that stick in my mind are from UKD1 days, James Cock IIRC had a Rally prepped TR8 and there was this one off Lotus bathtub thing that gave probably the worst performance Ive ever seen. And Ive seen a few bad ones. :nod:

    Mr Nick wins at being original though, Isuzu Piazza @ Silverstone, Manta in Lightnings post and aformentioned DB7 too :thumbs:
