It is time for the next EBC Brakes Pad Giveaway! One set of pads (front or rear) will be gifted to one randomly selected forum member from our entire range, just by participating in the below thread!

In past giveaways we have discussed our first ride, garage and storage spaces, famous people we have met or would like to have met and weird and wonderful vehicles amongst other topics.

With respect to electric vehicles, the sound and mechanics of an internal combustion engine is a masterpiece, and as pressures increase from governments for the end of the ICE, this month we would like to pose the question; Hypothetically the law states you can keep only one ICE car for the future, what car do you want to hold onto forever, and why?
Would you choose something economic like a Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost twin turbo, or go for power with the 5.2L V10 Lamborghini Huracan or a 6.2L Hemi SRT Hellcat Supercharged V8? Maybe you want the usability of a Ford F-150, or the classic finesse of a 1980 Corvette Stingray?


The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced within a few days after the closing date of 1st December 2022 and details will be posted on this forum shortly after.

Please be aware that this thread may appear in more than one section on the forum and one winner will be selected from the whole forum, not a winner per thread.
Pad choice will be based on availability and where a chosen pad is unavailable, an alternative will be offered.

If you are not the lucky winner, EBC Brakes are pleased to be able to offer a 10% discount off their braking products to all members of the forum community using code FORUM10USER
This discount code can be redeemed at EBC Brakes Direct | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Brake Discs or with our USA partners at Perfect Brakes | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Rotors


Any questions or application issues please let us know.

GOOD LUCK………

Would have to be keep Betty my CW 9g typer or my first car 72 beetle 1302s.

When the day comes I'm toying with restomodding it to electric, seeing as Tesla motors can be tweaked to 500bhp equivalent and the rise of retro conversion companies doing it to classics, it could feel and match balance and kerb weight of the ice typer :)

This one’s a hard one EBC. Love the style of ascari A10 and NSX but I have to go with Astra gte mk2. Many memories made with that car. The car that had lcd screen and many said it wouldn’t catch on eh.
gotta work for the free pads ;)

Its funny when something 'will never catch on' then becomes the norm, the same with touch screen phones and even cars themselves back in the early days!

Ford Sierra Cosworth. The first production car to have an engine that broke the magic 100bhp per Lt barrier. The YB engine was a derivative of the Pinto engine which powered cars from the Mk1 Escort & Transit van to the Ford Mustang. From Touring car Legend, including BTCC, DTM and Bathurst 1000, Rally legend to Monday morning commuter. A car that defined a generation.

Only one? Forever? Presumably (and somewhat worryingly) given the current direction of things, Petrol is going to become either extinct or Illegal in my lifetime. With this in mind, my last ICE car would have to be more than just something which is to carry the mantle of all cars. It has to be a monument to speed, a dogged victor of adversity and a blasting swansong of petrol fueled hedonism. More than this it has also to be something I'll never tire of looking at as it sits imobile on my driveway, marooned by progress and mourned in it's now ever silent form. With this in mind, I submit my choice. Simply one of the most beautiful and emotive machines, let alone cars, to ever be penned by human hand. The exquisite classic that is the Jaguar XJ220, in Spa Silver.

And when you were a laddie you only had 3 channels on the TV too.....30 years between the two cars, its no surprise. When the Cossie came out my dads 2.3D Sierra estate had 57 bhp, my wife's Picanto has more than that.
Hehe aye but considering I was owning 205gtis n xr2 mk1 around same time, I couldn't believe how disappointed I was driving it, looked awesome white with the blue decals, being a rs500 too

But they are/were easily tuneable. There was no real requirement for 400bhp back in the day, when most hot hatches barely had 100bhp. Remember the fuss the Lotus Carlton created when it came along, what was that 370bhp? It was mentioned in the Houses of Parliament, where they wanted it banned lol.
