I would love to see people start to post some pictures of themselves with these cars. It will take a while, but I am going to try to find one of me with every car in my list, from washed out Kodachrome to digital nowness.

Of course, a couple of those didn't make it onto the road, but they were all legally mine!

Oh, forgot the Bedford CA camper. Far too rusty to ever make it anywhere under it's own steam.

we're listing what I would call moderns as well, then you can add the following:

Peugeot 106 (first shape),

'53 plate Peugeot 307 SW (120,000 miles and

MG ZR (only brand new car I ever bought - stupid decision but decided it would be a good partner for the MGB GT I owned at the time)

Renault Scenic (terrible, terrible car)

Audi A4 (fantastic high-mileage bargain that lasted a few years),

Can't resist posting here even though most of my cars fall quite a way outside the 'classic' status. But we are all enthusiasts together, so here goes -

  • Mini 1000 (very briefly)
  • Fiat Uno
  • Fiat Uno Turbo
  • Renault 5 GT Turbo
  • 205 GTi 1.6
  • Lancia Delta Integrale
  • Fiat Barchetta
  • Vauxhall Calibra
  • Escort RS Turbo
  • Nissan 350z
  • 2 more Renault 5 GT Turbo's
  • Fiesta XR2i (the Fiestarossa)
  • Skoda Octavia vRS (current daily shuttle)

I still run three of the above, and am on the hunt for a 240z. Was a Gnat's-chaff from buying one a month ago, but childcare fees intervened. Grrrrr...
