Thought I'd post up my past car history. Not many but here we go.

Started off with a 1.2 Corsa C SXi, Which I modified heavily.

Then I moved on and got a 1993 1.6 Luxury Edition Escort :lol: Just for a runaround while I found my mini.

My mini then. 1995 Mini Sidewalk 1.3Mpi Sportpack bodykit and Alloys. Started off like this.

okay i've only just found this so i thought i'd join in.

 

1st car was my MkII golf GTI 8V which i spent all my hard earned money on at the age of 19! :wacko:

 

have to say it is still one of the most fun cars i've ever driven :teeth:

 

ride2.jpg

 

ride.jpg

 

i had to sell her as i started getting real problems with her and was fixing something weekly :scare:

 

then i brought a 1.6l escort which was pants! :thumbdown:

 

then i had a little saxo VTR 1.6.

 

DSC00925.jpg

 

then i hit some ice one Christmas and killed her :bangin::byebye:

 

DSC00987.jpg

 

then with the insurance money i got another one...newer shape :D

 

used to love the way she'd get to 120 on the clock and the dial would just bounce but kept going :scare:

 

DSC02212.jpg

 

then i needed money to start saving for a house and wedding so had to sell what i could. :doh:

 

as a run around i picked up an audi 80 for £200 :blush: was really comfortable though and it had the same engine as my MkII golf GTI but way slower :disguise:

 

then after getting the house i needed something that i could move stuff with and make loads of trips to the dump and for all my trips to B&Q ;)

 

i couldn't do a van so i got a volvo V40 2.0T..... freaking hell she was quick!! :scare:

 

carpic4.jpg

 

after most of the house was done i started to miss my old skool golf and messing around with mods and i'd always loved MR2's so i brought my black beauty.

 

002.jpg

 

PA230171.jpg

 

loved her so much and really great fun to drive.

 

then i had enough of old skool and wanted something with a bit more class and up to date so i went out and found my baby and i love her to bits :snog:

Had a few motors in my time but here are a few of my favourites....

 

Ford Cougar V6

Spent a fortune on this car, rims, ice, bodystyling etc. Loved it to bits and was such a unique car. Sold it 6 months after I got my Z.

Mk1 Golf

Bought it as an unfinished project of a bodywork shop who had done a bareshell respray on it in Mercedes Green. Stripped and rebuilt the engine and gearbox and was almost finished when it got broken into and trashed while I was away for a few days. Lost heart in it and flogged it on ebay, my biggest regret to this day. :byebye:

Scumball Mercedes Benz 420SE 4.2 V8

Awesome car that we used for the Scumball. 7 Mercs went and ours was the only one that made it back in one piece and running perfectly. Bought for £450 and sold on ebay for £451. Tidy

I totally agree, the only car I actually want back is my MK1 Golf.

My list in rough order (because I can't remember at my age) :wheelchair:

 

Renault 18 GTS (first car)

 

Mini metro 1.0 (basically three road signs welded together by the time it died)

 

Opel Manta (in a fetching cat crap colour)

 

Rover 2600 SD1 (basically four road signs welded together by the time it died)

 

[plus various other poo boxes over the years]

 

Jaguar XJS V12 (only for four months - it averaged 9.7 mpg!!!!)

 

Rover 827 (a bit like being the mayor of somewhere @*!#)

 

Peugeot 406 V6 coupe (much better car than I expected)

post-1642-135011870853_thumb.gif

 

Vauxhall Corsa 1.7 diesel (first turbo car owned - feel the power at 54 bhp, but I was desperate at the time) :blush:

 

Overlapping with many of the above, my favourite: Rover SD1 Vitesse (3.9 litre V8 tuned beast - absolutely awesome car and the best fun I've ever had out of bed) :drive1

post-1642-13501187078_thumb.gif

 

Current cars:

Nissan X-Trail 2.2 DCi Sport (second turbo car ever and much better than the first)

 

Blade 350z (best looking car ever - but I do miss the V8 noise and speed from the Vitesse!) :cloud9:
