|1986 - Vauxhall Chevette - Blue - (old) P Reg.|
Inherited from brother. Nice car to drive, unreliable, but it was old. I always liked the styling.
|1986 - Mini - White - (old) M Reg.|
Everyone has to own one at one point - this was the student special, starter motor knackered had to park it at the top of a hill so that I could jump start it everyday on my own! It got me home from university, somehow.
Ford Fiesta 950 - White - (old) R Reg.|
Excellent car, reliable, but rusty. Indoor swimming pool after every shower. Bought for £650 at beginning of summer hols, sold at end for £550 - sold on evening of storms of 1987. Run for a couple of thousand miles.
Ford Escort 1.3L - Brown - (old) Y Reg.|
Dreadful car, if I ever meet the bloke who sold me it I'd probably kick him, hard, very hard. Somehow got to Cornwall and back, after stuffing the filters with sponge (don't ask - long story!). Sold at a massive loss. Probably did less than 10,000 miles in it.
Ford Orion 1.6 Ghia - Burgundy - E Reg.|
Lovely car, reliable, not too good above 3-4,000rpm, but that'll be the old Ford CVH engines for you. Run for around 38,000 miles.
|1993 - Temporary Pool and Hire Cars While waiting for new company car|
Rover 420si, Temporary pool car - quick but handled like a sponge
Audi 80, great build quality really showed through
Renault 21 Turbo, not good, not good at all.
|1993 - Vauxhall Calibra 2.0 16v - L Reg.|
Wide-boy car now, but great looking at the time - warm-bottom seats always memorable. Run for around 50,000 miles.
|1995 - BMW 318SE - L Reg.|
4 doors needed for littl'uns. 1st entry into BMW territory. I will always remember the sharp steering and the quality of the drivetrain. Run for about 15,000 miles.
|1996 - Audi A4 1.6SE - P Reg.|
As solid as the previous Audi 80. Excellent car, shame I couldn't afford anything more expensive or larger engined. Run for just over 60,000 miles.
|1999 - BMW 316SE - T Reg.|
Would have probably bought a 6 cylinder 320i if there had been one at the time - had to settle for 316 (1.9 litre engine) with lots of extras. Run for about 56,000 miles.
|2002 - BMW 325i Sport - 02 Reg.|
At last the 6 cylinder BMW that I always promised myself - best car ever. Fantastic.
