    Default What cars have you owned?

    Few embarassing ones here, but hey, I got there in the end. Passed my test in August 1997

    F reg Fiat Panda 1000cc. Gift from my parents, sold it to a drug dealer for 500...he crashed it when high on heroin
    Y reg Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6. Total shed, bought for 170. Dumped it in the woods after the engine caught fire
    E reg Rover 213. Bought for 495, sold it for 400...the buyer rang me a few months later, failed MOT, car was bent lol
    D reg Nissan Sunny 1.3. Bought for 395...was a cracking wee car. Very comfy, and faultless
    M reg Rover 214. Bought for 2495...was slow as shite, 8v model. Still lowered it 40mm and added Sebring twin back box
    P reg Honda Civic 1.5 vtec-e. 5 door MB model
    R reg Honda Civic 1.5 vtec 2. Same shape, but white. I paid 3495 for it, was written off 15 months later, I got 3400 )
    51 Citroen Saxo 1.4 Furio. Nippy wee car, but felt very fragile. Strange electrics
    R reg Honda Prelude 2.2 VTi. Full leather, absolute joy to drive. Thirsty though, 200 miles per tank.
    03 Fiat Punto 1.2 Active. Was going through an economical phase. Sold to mother
    05 Fiat Punto 1.2 Active. Slow as shite
    03 Honda Civic Sport. Ok car but too slow, and a Type R rip-off. Sheep in wolves clothes
    51 Honda Civic Type R. Great car, so chuffed when I got it. Sold a year later for...
    55 Honda Civic Type R. Best car i`ve ever had

    passed jan 06
    1st car: ford fiesta 2001 1.3 mk5 shape in colarado red. minimal spec and 60hp made it a light car. 3700
    got car sep 2005 and before i'd even got my bday in oct i'd already done rear black lexus lights, sub, stereo and changed 4 speakers.
    by feb i'd already found 15" focus wheels that had been powdercoated gunmetal colour. shod with toyo rubber and handled great. march we lowered it with zetec s shocks with eibach lowering springs (std dampers= -40mm and the springs added -20mm so was -60mm in total) it handled so good i never had the use of the brakes and threw it round all corners not having the power to lose grip. out handled every car i raced and on a big island i used to be able to get to about 75mph in the wet wherease my 2003 fiesta only got 55 in the dry! got 330 miles on a 38 litre ragging tank. dunno about at most it would do! i loved it. planned on putting an rs turbo engine in BUT....
    june 06 while edging out of a dodgy blind junction i was hit in the front wing. got 3200 back but had spent over 500 doing it. still had the stereo, lights and sub back.

    2nd car: 2003 fiesta 1.4 79hp. got it at 28k miles in jun 06 from my brother who had it from new (and was getting a mk5 zetec s at the same time i crashed) i sold it with 85k miles in feb 08. basically drove this like i drove my old car. avg front tyre miles: 8k brake pads were changed every 10k and in the last 25k miles i did i realised that fuel cost lots and had to slow down. did about 360 miles max for 40 litres and about 250 at least. i knew how it handled in every condition. got 3100 back.

    3rd car: 1999 honda civic jordan. never buying a ford again!
