inspiried from our current car conversations it would be interesting so see what you had as your first car and maybe also worth a look of your past carlist.

this one was my first car.

Audi50 WTF just imagine i am a Audi cock too. shit... OK, it was also called VW Polo 1. so that might be a excuse for me lol i got a purple lacquered one for, if i remember right, around 2300.- DM.



this must be my second one. a mazda 323. that was a funny car because of the little weight it was fast as hell. ok and ugly as fuck lol but this was the car of my party time in my youth and the little car saw a lot of distrubing things lool

lmao its also the same color as mine:


than i got that one. a Alfa 75 1.8 16V . that was a car. always broken but a lot of fun.



with that car i was going into my new and current job and so i switched to diesel fired cars with the Skoda Octavia 1.9TDI

brand new and broken down with 380.000KM


than a short BMW periode with this bitch. 525 TDS 2,5 V6 also more broken as driven so i parked this little cunt in my front yard and bought a Skoda Octavia again.





This Skoda runs 485.000km before the engine blown up.

So followed by a VW Touran for just a bit over 1 year.



than i got a Mercedes 320 CDI till this year it was stopped at 489.000km from some expensive repairings.



so here we go with my current car with the peugeot 508 SW business line.



mhh, so all in all i had 9 cars at all. bloody hell. never count them. :eek: WTF i´ve driven more than 1.500.000km with that cars lmao will not calculate what i paid for refuel :whistle:

Here are mine, I have a gap as I was getting a company car for a while. Too long ago for some to remember the years. Funny how we now nearly always have a camera with us so can take photos but in the past missed so many chance because there was only film!

  1. Austin 1100 - roughly like a mini but bigger and shittier
  2. Hillman Hunter (company car)
  3. Hillman Avenger (company car, about 80,000 miles)
  4. Ford Escort Mk2 1.3l (about 45,000 miles)
  5. Ford Escort Mk1, 1600, twin webbers, dry sumped, roll cage, quick shift gear box, (used for rallying)
  6. Mini (original), roll cage etc (used for auto tests and rallying) drivers seat was almost where the back seat was.
  7. Ford Fiesta XR2 (110,000 miles)
  8. VW Golf GTi Mk2 (60,000 miles in 2 years)
  9. Renault Clio
  10. Ford Ka
  11. Ford Mondeo Mk2 2l (170,000 miles)
  12. Ford Mondeo Mk3 1.8l (currently 130,000 miles)
What next? Not really sure. We don't need a Mondeo sized car most of the time though it is useful for holidays and shopping trips to France. I like the Fiesta to drive but the extra room of the Focus would be useful. I don't really have any "would like" cars at the moment except for the Ford EcoSport as that would have room plus be easier for me with my dodgy knees.

If there was more money about (how are you feeling Mum?) then I would love to have a Gallardo, even for a short while before getting something sporty but cheaper and more practical. Think I would possibly be looking at a Jag F type or a Nissan GT-R.

Before you think anything, my Mum is 88 and still in good health. She bought her house for £35k about 30 years ago and it is currently valued at about £400k! She often asks and jokes about what car I would get when she passes!!

A few cars I regret not buying when I had the chance was the original Audi Quattro, an XJ220 (there was one going for just £16,000 as they could hardly give them away) and a Suburu Impreza.

Some cars I've driven...
  • Alfa Romeo GTV - stupid driving position
  • Ferrari Boxer - OK but...
  • Audi Quattro
  • Lancia Integrale
  • Land Rover Defender (what a pile of crap - why do people like them)
  • Ford Capri 2.8i
And some I've been in...

also a lot of cars glen. :eek: and a lot of fords. we where looking at a Focus estate to for Sandra, before we bought the Citroen Berlingo finaly. Think a Focus is a good Value in Price and Space.

i like the Defender so far. Its a bit back to basic because its a bit like driving a Tractor lool

this super sportscars are not my favs, i am going more into a big camping mobile if we could effort the money.

Just happened to get a few Fords but mainly because they were on offer and got good deals. I couldn't actually drive the Defender as my size 14 feet couldn't safely use the pedals.

Too paranoid to tell it :P
I cant count how many times im been sitting in Defender with shitload of stuff on. Driving around little roads at forest and there is other team/squad as enemy waiting for training ambushing of enemy vehicles. And here we go again: Get out take cover fast. Organize squad for defence. After firefight and "defeating of enemy" get back in Defender. Reset situation and repeat that million times to get squad work smoothly. Oh sweet service times. (y)

We were doing an adventure team building day and the instructor was having a go at me because I was moaning (in agony trying to press the pedals) till he looked and said "Oh!" and then " maybe you need to have a go in the discovery".

The supercar thing is just me planning my mid-life crisis. Told Isobel she will have to dye her hair blonde whilst I have my crisis!

Often car purchases are made because of financial reasons especially when young and wheels are wheels but if it was BF I'm sure some shouts of noob would reach our ears!

Andy, the Mk2 XR2 was a great car, mine had a Janspeed exhaust, k&n filters, uprated suspension, Cibie fogs and spots! Sunbeam Lotus was a decent car, Lake District police used to use them!

Just thought of a few rental cars I've driven.

A Mini in Malta, you rolled down the window and the top part of the door fell off!
A tiny Kia thing in Greece, was awful, accelerator pedal was tucked behind the centre console, agony after about 5 minutes.
In the US, a smallish Chrysler thing. Apart from being a horrid green, it had stones inside the wheel cover which rattled ALL the time. Jeep Patriot, drank fuel like an alcoholic at a free bar and got stuck in some sand! Dodge Charger - just :), Chrysler Grand Caravan (had my mum with us) - just poo. Nisan Qashqai (diesel) - just kept stalling it and uncomfortable. Nissan Micra, the only car I've driven and never overtaken anything in- so gutless.

Here is my Mini (the blue one #57). Plus my Mk2 escort (that isn't me) 1980 RAC Rally-45.jpg Mondeo_Panorama.jpg NG55FXM.jpg and most last two cars.

I'm sad but I have enjoyed seeing and found interesting what cars people have had. Probably one of the big purchases we make that has a big emotional input to our choice.
