I had one of those (or very similar at least) during my driving classes a few years back. Really fun to drive!

Thanks, Can't get it over my heart to sell it though I have a company car now. Needs a new clutch because of the ECU chiptuning

1999 Mitsubishi 3000 GT SL

It just looked fast, was a 6 banger with no guts, but had a 5-spd so popping the clutch was a given

Exactly like this: (didnt have fog lights though)

My own very first owed car was a 1972 VW Beetle 1302s in bottle green, man I loved my old bug! 1600cc with dual choke webber carbs, drank petrol like water but was quick and noisy :D

Sadly went to the scrapheap in the sky, regretted it ever since, the 1302s models are quite rare.
