Passed test '05 (late starter)

1.1 Rover 100, handmedown from aunt, pants, but a free car is a free car. Wanted to 6R4 that little beast!

mk3 fiesta freestyle 1.3, notable for having 6x9 speakers, self fitted in the front mounts using the original 13cm screw holes, 1" MDF spacers and some bits of roofing brace. Plus a 12" sub, quite potent for a shoestring system.
Could keep the pedal to the metal all the way round a corner, showed up some tailgater once when leaving work an hour late. Left in the dark, on country roads, took a blistering bend at over 50 (on the correct side of course) and made some good distance, then on come the blue lights! DOH! Had a tail light out, whoops!

mk3 fiesta 1.6S oh how i miss that little warhorse! a 1991 8v, basically a de-tuned XR2, four and a half years of trouble free motoring! Wish i had kept it, 20 years old, mistreated, neglected, never flinched once. Even left it laid up on the drive for that bad winter a couple of years back, new battery and it fired straight away! Rare car, soon discovered you couldnt keep your foot down round corners though!



2001 6N2 Polo GTI, plush car, xenon lights, climate control, heated leather seats, renowned for being faulty.
Waited until i had blown £500 on new rims, then developed an ABS fault, fried its alternator, demanded a service the day after a pricey MOT, and lunched its clutch and gearbox (not through mistreatment, 'box failiure common, i even had a spare!) Still on the driveway awaiting sale, and tearing at my heartstrings while kicking me in the nuts at the same time!


And soooo, now i have an EV1...
no pics until i use the pressure washer santa is going to deliver...

89 Volkswagen Polo - was given to me by my Dad when I was about 12. He bought it at an auction for the private plate it had on it and was going to scrap the car until I piped up. It was eventually left in the road with no MOT, Tax or insurance so was taken away and crushed.

95 Vauxhall Corsa - was given to me by my grandparents when I was 15. Again they were going to scrap it as they couldn't get it to run. I stuck a new fuel pump on it and sold it. I even shared the profit with them. :)

76 Triumph Spitfire - bought as my first car when I was 16. Restored it then realised I couldn't afford to insure it, so sold it on again, for quite a loss. Would love another one.

07 Peugeot 107 - my Mums car, inherited it from her when I couldn't insure the Spitfire. Have been using it ever since as my first car. Its the sport XS model so has the stripes and twin exhaust. ;)

76 Mercedes 350SL - bought as a joint project for me and my Dad. Nearly on the road now, should hopefully be done come spring.

99 Range Rover - bought to sell on to recoup some of the money I lost on the Spitfire.

93 Mitsubishi GTO - bought to sell on to recoup some of the money I lost on the Spitfire. Still got it, if anyone's interested. ;)

02 Honda Civic EP2 - just bought it to replace the Peugeot. Not what I wanted originally but the car is really growing on me.

MK1 RS1600 escort rally car. I crashed it, not badly but was living at home at the time. We got the car back to mine and the old man took one look at it and said if I unloaded it from the trailer I would be looking for a new place to live. I should have unloaded it. It cost me £1500 to buy and I sold it damaged for £1000. If only I kept hold of it.

passed my test in a blue ford fiesta popular 1.nothing (£600) that I had to put a p/s wing mirror on lol, that got stolen and crashed into a tree over the park. twats

then I got a 1.3 Mk4 ford escort (£750), ran it for about 3 years while at uni, then the head gasket blew and I dumped it for something new..

EDIT>> at this point I will add that I was doing a job for Allianz for about 6 months, driving damaged cars to and from repair shop. at that time I drove (takes deep breath) Range rovers, TDI and GTi golfs, BMW X series, a 3ltr Jag, various CLK and SLK mercs (popular in Guildford it seems), Audi A4 with paddle shift (CRAP, get it away from me), new mini/bini (both cooper S and non) various old Volvos (love 'em), Mondeos and Saabs (yawn). A new nissan micra that goes KLUNK! every time you change gear, MX5, a Mitzy FTO, various 3 series etc. the usual fare

back to my cars..

then I got a BMW 316i in dark green. (£900) was sending a text after a heavy night and 'bumped' it into the central reservation on the A12. yes, what a prick, I know. live an learn. noone got hurt I just had a massive gouge all down drivers side.. d'oh

after that I went old school, picked up a Volvo 360 GLS (£185! yes, not a typo) in gold with brown veluuerrghh interior (looked a bit like the old seats on the district line, if anyone knows what I mean) that had a nice big 2ltr lump, rear mounted g/box, nicely poised. bunged on some BM E30 wheels and dropped it 2" with a sport back box, lovely little motor. rusted away somewhat, didn't think it was safe anymore, needed another every day run about

after that I plumped for a Mk5-6 (not sure) 1.8 Zetec Escort (£550) in burgundy, that was great for a while but the mileage was high and it made these weird knocking noises that I couldn't be arsed to look into. dumped it

Then I bought a BM 318i sawn off / dolphin nose. whatever you want to call it, "couldn't afford the back half" hatchback. can never remember what they're called. not coupe, the other one. (£2,600! was lovely tho, full M trim) anyway I grew to hate it because it was more or less gutless and then I hit a bus in it. long story, not my fault, insurance paid out :)

THEN with the payout I got a 323i proper BM, 4 door, nice car but WAY too expensive on petrol / parts / tyres

now I have a Civic, as below (£350). this is saving me endless amounts in petrol

The end
