Ok What have you owned over your motoring career.

I thought it might be a bit of fun for a Friday.

Remember your list will give away your age so if your worried about that sort of thing don’t start with a Austin 7 Ruby.

Ill start, It’s harder than you think to get them in order.

Mini 1275GT
Mk 3 Triumph GT6
Mini 1000
MK 1 RS 2000
Mk 3 Capri 3.1
Mk 1 RS 2000
Mk 2 Granada
Mk 3 Capri 3.0
Mk 2 RS 2000
Land Rover S3
Mk 3 Capri 2.8i
Rover V8 P5
Mk 3 Granada 2.8
Mk 3 Golf GTI
Mk 3 Granada 2.8i x
Fiesta van (works)
Focus ghia 2.0
Yamaha FJ 1200 (Toy)
Nissan Primera (A small lapse in judgment)
Caterham 7 (Toy) (To make up for the Nissan)
Mondeo ST 220
TVR Chimaera (Toy) (I should have kept the Caterham)

Be Proud Drive a Big Ford :banana:

Excellent post m8 :thumb:

I passed my test in 93 at the grand old age of 18! I had no money for driving lessons (dad and friends taught me) so took the test in the motor my dad bought for me, so I'll start with that one:

B Reg 1.6 GL Sierra Estate (took test in this)traded in for the Granada.
C Reg 2.8i Ghia Granada (insured as named driver on dads policy) Got shunted up the arse by a fiesta then failed MOT big time!
E Reg 2.0i Ghia Sierra Sapphire, failed MOT big time
K Reg 1.6i LX Mondeo Saloon (Crashed it)
H Reg 2.0 GLX Sierra Hatch (Carb 2.0 DOHC 8v yuk!) Sold it as I returned to UNI
C Reg 1.3 L Escort Estate (Student car) pile of censored!
G Reg 2.0 GL Sierra Sapphire (Student car mk2) Failed MOT big time in last year of uni.
G Reg 1.6 Classic Sierra Sapphire (Student car mk3) traded in for mondeo.
M Reg 1.8i Ultima Mondeo Hatch. Traded in for Mondeo
05 plate 2.0 TDCi 115ps Mondeo Zetec. Too slow plus it was sold to me as a 130ps.
05 plate 2.0 TDCi 130ps Mondeo Ghia. Dealer got me this car as a way of saying sorry.
55 plate 3.0 ST220 Mondeo Estate. TDCi was still getting it's ass whopped by Vectras; so it was time for me to stamp my authority...and get into loads of debt :thumb:

ST220 Estate. Performance Blue 55 Plate --> LONG GONE!
