Alan Cowen,

Maintenance Engineer, Manchester born now living in Wardle (Rochdale)

My interest in the car scene 1st peaked in my college years when a fellow student had a fully modded Vauxhall Corsa, Bodykit, Wheels, Interior the work's from then I began to pick up Max Power/Fast Ford & Redline mag's every month and I was hooked.

The car scene is great because it allows you full creativity on your own motor which I think most enthusiasts appreciate when you talk to them at meet's. Everyone is welcoming and there for the same reason's, It's one big friendly family of the weird, wonderful and very often crazy!!

My Daily is a Seat Ibiza Cupra Bocanegra 1.4 TSI Twincharged.

Why this car?? It's Twincharged (Supercharger & Turbo) with a DSG box.....What's not to like???...

Smiles per mile!!

The Bocanegra is one in it's own as they only made 3000 of them worldwide a decade ago, with only 400 left on UK roads, They had such a bad wrap in the early days with engine problems but there are some good egg's out there..although I've yet to see another at a meet (which I kind of like)

I think mine stands out mainly for the Dakota Red colour by far the nicest colour they made them in IMO, Also once dropped a few inches they just have the right stance and look great from any angle.

I am part of the ExtremeBHP club and also a member of SeatCupra.net, I have only just started attending meets again as I've not been around the car scene for many years but you will usually find me at a BHP meet as they are legal, good fun and highly recommended. 

ExtremeBHP has just announced some MASSIVE future plan's which I can not wait to be a part of...Go check them out on the socials!!! 

Dream's car are tough one to answer as they've changed through the years......

My early 20's self would say an Escort Cossie, but now I really want an M2 Competition in Sunset Orange.
