First car was a pug 205 1.1 trio S - cost me £900 to buy and £1200 to insure

The I got a Seat Ibiza 1.4 - most reliable car I've ever had so...

Got a Ibiza Cuprasport 2.0 16v - the only car that I am dreading to get rid of. Now the Celica's coming, she's got to go and I'm going to miss her :(

Let's see now...

P reg (70-something) Vauxhall Viva HC 1.3

Y reg (83) Ford Fiesta 1.1GL

D Reg Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6GL

F reg Nissan Sunny 1.4LS

J reg Ford Escort 1.4 estate

K reg Mazda 323 1.8GLi fastback

various company Astras, Cavaliers, Mondeos

R reg Ford Escort 1.8si

Y reg Honda CR-V 2.0es Executive (inc. shower & fridge!)

Favourite from that lot... probably the 323. Great to drive, pop-up headlights, stolen from a pub car park and used in a house break-in before being utterly destroyed by a bunch of scrotes in Failsworth, where it had been abandoned :(

The Fiesta was nice - surprisingly fast for a 1.1. The CR-V was a bit boaty, but a lovely car. Worst thing about it was what it did to my tax code, with it's CO2 rating of 229...

Cheers,

Tarby

I`ve had way in excess of 60 (Sixty) Cars

Is that one a year since you were 17?? :lol: ;)

I had:

J Reg 1.1 Metro - Most fun car I ever had, lost it twice going too fast and did no damage :D - Got rid of for £600 (cost 0 given it when my grandad died but did cost £300 to get it on the road!)

K Reg metro - Only had it for a couple of weeks borrowed from a friend then I sold it for them - 5 gear version not as much fun as the 4 gear one I had :)

N Reg Seat Ibiza 1.4 CLS - Noisiest car I've ever owned, crap gearbox, handled like a shopping trolley which had been extended in height and loaded so it was top heavy! Fairly reliable though (mostly wifes car though)

P Reg Ford Escort 1.6 16V Zetec - Not bad at all but seemed to eat brake pads - new set every 2000 miles ( I was driving through fast country lanes with lots of braking but I was doing 25000 miles a year!) - Written off by stupid old woman

P Reg Peugeot 306 DTurbo - Worst car I've ever owned, complete peice of sh :ffs: .

P Reg Celica 1.8ST - Best car I've owned

T reg Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec - Wifes car (second best car owned)

The wife also had an F Reg Nova, but I wasn't seen driving that peice of crap :lol::ph34r:

-Mini 1000

-Rover 216 Sli P reg

-Renault clio 16v (on a par with the celica for driving fun, infact I was a nutta when driving that thing so it probablt tips it to the post)

- Renault 5 TL (damb thing was falling apart)

- Renault clio 1.4 RT (fantastic car for the money, quite quick too)

- Current Celica

There were a few other very short lived cars too - mitsi shogun, mazda mx6 (great car in a straight line but scarry round the corners)

All in all I love the Celica most but the Clio was a hell of alot of fun and so ws the mini.
