What car's have you had ?

Post by Bob on Fri Aug 17, 2012 8:49 am

Following on from Jims thread ?

Over the years I have had lots of cars, the first was a 1954 Ford Popular with aquaplain head and Big Wheels, I used it tow a Lotus 6 and later a Lotus 11 all over the country.

Alfas, Mustangs, Camaro, Porche, Lotus and now I drive a Ford Fiesta Mad

Post by Guest on Fri Aug 17, 2012 9:36 am

first car was a Mini 850cc

followed by

a) Escort RS Mexico (what would that be worth today?)
b) Golf GTI (the classic one)
c) Ferrari 308 GTB (not the car to have in London)
d) Porsche 911 Targa (think it was 2.7l)
e) Golf GTI (later rounded shape)
f) Lada Niva 4x4 - don't laugh very capable 4x4
g) Land Rover County 110 V8 (very agricultural and painful for long drives)
h) Range Rover P38 petrol - a nightmare (kept it only about a month - first of the cars with air suspension i think?)
i) Porsche 944S - superb
j) Ford Mondeo TD estate (best fishing car space wise)
k) Jeep Cherokee XJ TD (poor road holding in the wet)
l) Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7 V8 - fast and great handling after mods
m) current Range Rover Vogue 4.4 V8 - lovely but expensive to run and maintain but would not change it for the world

The first was a Morris Marina. I never actually drove it just fixed it up the sold it.

Then I did the same with a VW Polo.

Then the ones I drove:-

1. Escort LX (Very clapped out but did the job)
2. VW Golf (My first new car-very basic it didn't even have central locking)
3. Audi A3 (The ex wife made me get rid of it bacause it was only a 3 door)
4. Nissan Xtrail (This is what the ex wife wanted)
5. Nissan Qashai (This is what I got because the Xtrail stunk of the ex wife)

I'd love the get another Audi at some point but they are starting to get too expensive!

My first car was a Ford Escort 1.1l 4 Speed that i soon modded with the XR3i kit including 'pepper pot' wheels Surprised

Then had.....

Ford Fiesta XR2i Mk2 (loved that car)
Ford Escort S2 RS Turbo (Still got)
Vauxhall Astra Mk 3
Vauxhall Astra Mk5
Vauxhall Astra Mk5 SXi
Toyota Avensis
Mercedes 190E
and next month will be the owner of a 62 Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer

Although they're the cars i've owned I used to co-own a bodyshop/tuning shop with my brother. Back then i would regularly drive....

Nissan Pulsar GTiR's (drove many from standard to 400+bhp)
Ford Escort Cosworth's (One day one will be mine...)
Ford Sierra Cosworth's
Toyota Supra's (500+bhp)
Subaru Impreza's
Mitsubishi Evo's
Mitsubishi GT's

Customers would often ask that i take their car out and let them know how it performed against others of the same marque. Happy days Very Happy

Just added a Delica to the stable. 8 seats that can be folded away to allow rods etc to lie flat, 4wd with lockable diff, 2.8 turbo diesel. Ideal for an angler.
