  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    What's your favorite Hot Hatch? Not just the brand and model but the year or generation too. They don't have to be sold or have been sold here in the US. They don't have to be 2 doors. They have to be fun, quick (at least for their day), affordable at the time, and have a hatch.

    I don't have just one favorite. I've always liked MINI's 1st and 2nd Gen S's.
    But long before MINI's I loved the Omni GLH and the Ford Escort Cosworth edition.

    Yes it is in 1992. I was much younger & faster then. The older I get the faster I was.

    Forgot to mention my 1992 Civic Si. A very fun hot hatch. Back then not as many pony's were available. We have it good now. HP & decent mileage. :thumbsup:

    I love the Audri Quattro too, but it ain't a hatch back.

    Darn Dave, how can this be? Two times in two days. :smilewinkgrin:

    Always wanted a Lancia Delta HF Integrale, but could never afford the insurance rates in England. I had an '83 1.8 ltr Golf GTI that was well fettled; head work, cam, exhaust, Audi throttle body matched to the inlet manifold, lowered 1 1/2 inches, etc, and a Delta (white with the standard size Martini stripes) left me like I was parked at the curbside.

    I love my R56 MCS, but I've also owned a VW GTi, and loved it, too. I rate my MINI as more fun, but my GTi had the build quality and refinement of a the Mercedes I owned before it.

    The back opens ... in my book that's a hatch back. :lol::lol::lol::lol:
