My list of cars is too long to post but it basically includes anything with a Turbo, GTi, XR, RS, HF, etc etc badge on it.

Highlights include -

Alfasud Ti Cloverleaf
Alfa 75 3.0 V6 (still got it)
Rover SD1 3.5 V8 Supercharged (still got it)
Delta Integrale Evo II
Mr2 Turbo (x2)
Nissan Pulsar GTiR
Nissan Skyline GTR (r33 & r32)
Ford Mondeo ST TDCi

I've always been into Italin cars more than anything to be honest, and very carefully considered the New Alfa 159 before buying the Mondeo, I would have got it too if it didn't have to be a workhorse (taxi) and the dealer was more local.

Only Alfa give you a boost guage as standard on Turbo diesels!!

:mad: You cheeky young pup - I'm only 36!!!! :mad:

I just had more money than sense in those days(and then I got married).

Of the 3 XR's I had, the best was an immaculate moonstone blue series 1, and then I had a black MKII with the twin airflow sensors, zorst, K&N's etc. and then picked up a bargain red MKI again.

I've got a burning desire to buy another one as a toy, but the good ones are daft money now.

Here is my somewhat random list. Some of the choices were governed by financial restraints, that's my excuse.

C Reg Vauxhall Nova 1.2 Saloon (year out car)
R Reg Nissan Almera 1.4 Si (lost the use of a company car following a second major "bump")
03 Plate Alfa Romeo 156 Sportwagon 2.4 JTD
05 Plate Seat Leon Fr 1.9 Tdi
06 Plate Ford Mondeo TDCi ST Estate (Present Car)

The above are cars I've owned. My company car history is as varied and starts with a P reg Peugeot 306 which had 90K miles on it when I was presented with the keys.

Then an 02 Plate Peugeot 307. lots of faults with that car.

Finally a W reg 1.6 Mondeo LX which is when I opted out and bought the Alfa Romeo (see above).

Have driven too many hire cars to list while my cars a being serviced / repaired.
