    Smart fortwo - wrote it off, frugal, reliable, stupidly small fuel tank.
    Smart fortwo - rebuilt using the above cars drivetrain and a bigger fuel tank. Amusingly modified, never for sale.
    Mazda mx5 - Great fun, great handling, cheap thrills. Just not special/ different enough.
    Honda S2000 - Too soon to tell.

    4 cars.

    I've not yet managed to sell one either, though I did write one off...

    Jim Cameron is my idol.

    I think I may have accidentally sold the mx5 now though.

    Power; 55 > 80 > 140 > 240bhp
    Weight; 730>730>1000>1260kilos
    bhp/ton; 75 > 109>140>190

    Everything is increasing!

    Be brave :D.

    I deeply regret the Fords, both from new and both utter shit / nothing but trouble.

    21!

    Worked all through Uni and ran a business in my 6th form years. Not very successfully, just enough to fund my own cars and going to Uni.

    1983 VW Polo - 1.3 GL - Bought from our neighbour. My first car :D
    2000 Ford Ka - New from Ford with a years free insurance (worth a fortune at 18 living/at uni in Portsmouth and parking on the street) - POS - Total dog of a car from day one and nightmare with Hendy Ford Portsmouth
    2001 Renault Clio - 1.2 16v Dynamique - After a rave review on Topgear and two test drives, bought new from Renault (a dealership I worked for at 16 gave me a great deal) with another years free insurance
    1994 VW Corrado - 2.0 9a 16v - Bought from a family friend, my dream car at the time
    1998 VW T4 - 2.4D SWB 1200 - Blind eBay bid, super cheap and an adventure / total punt.
    2003 Lotus Elise - S2 Sport Tourer 1.8 K series - Pistonheads, paid for an RAC inspection and took it to JCT600 in Leeds for a spanner check before handing funds over.
    1998 VW T4 - 2.5 TDI LWB - A1Surf Classifieds, saw the ad and put a deposit within 4 hours of it coming online. Far too cheap and decided it was worth a punt if it was half as good as described. Sold the van 5 years later for the same price (and 60k more miles on it)
    1994 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.8 RS Ltd - Bought from a friend (KurtR on here, before NL days)
    2002 BMW M3 - E46 - Pistonheads, the car went to a specialist to be checked and I loosely knew the guy selling it
    1990 RAW Striker - 2.0l Redtop - Ebay special, never got to drive it as it was part shared with a friend, and a stupid idea.
    2001 VW Polo - 1.4 tdi Sport - SC’s first car. Sold to my parents.
    2009 Ford Fiesta - Zetec S TDCI - First company car - Another POS, last Ford I'll own.
    1978 VW Bay Window Camper - Tiaga Green Bay Westie - Bought from a friend (a VW/Porsche Dealer) for a crazy price to help him invest in a 911.
    2003 Mazda MX5 - mk2.5 1.8 SVT - Ebay, small deposit and cash on collection after a test drive and inspection
    2000 VW T4 Caravelle - 2.5 TDI SWB - Ebay, but from a used car dealership in Derby. No deposit and a deal with the mx5 as part-x (made 500 on the mx5 :D).
    1992 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.6 - Total E-bay punt. Failed to sell on ebay so I made a cash offer and went to collect it.
    1996 BMW 328i - e36 Coupe with LSD- Bought from NL's Simon Saunders, loved it and trusted Si fully. Shame it was crashed into and written off.
    1989 BMW 325i - e30 - Bought from NL. Least said soonest mended :(
    * 2012 BMW 116ed - F21 - Company car no.2 - UBER :D. Love it way too much.
    * 1994 Mazda MX5 - Mk1 1.8 RS Ltd - Lots of pleading PMs to Steve C - Very pleased persistence paid off
    * 2005 SAAB 9-3 Sportwagon - 1.9 tdi Vector Sport - eBay from a local(isn) dealership, went to view it and drove 10 other cars before negotiating a deal with a 3 month warranty

    In order too :D

    Edit: Lifted, amended and updated from Gary's how do you buy cars thread.


    From NL = 3
    From eBay = 6
    From Known People = 3
    New from Dealers = 4
    Ph / Other Classifieds = 5

    Edit2: * = Still own

    Could we have the title to the thread corrected, please. It's making that muscle by my eye twitch and I can't fix it.

    1979 Fiesta 950cc
    1983 Metro automatic - a hand me down from my grandmother - had the Mini 1275GT engine in it but after five gearboxes I decided it wasn't for me
    1986 Austin Montego 1.6 base - it wasn't even an 'L' - the passenger wing mirror was an optional extra
    1988 Citroen AX GT - cracking little car but made out of tin foil and plastic. Tried to kill myself in it.
    1988 Peugeot 205 GRD
    1989 Honda CRX Vtec - I loved that car
    1989 205 CTi
    1991 VW Golf Estate tdi
    1992 Volvo 940 Turbo (factory remapped to a heady 190bhp!)
    2000 BMW 330d Touring - my only brand new car
    1994 BMW E34 M5 3.8L
    1994 BMW E36 M3 - later turned into my track car
    1990 Mazda Eunos roadster 1.8 V spec
    1994 BMW E36 M3 - bought to turn into track car but bodywork and interior too mint and has 160k miles!
    1995 BMW 540i/Alpina B10 thing
    2002 BMW 330d Sport Touring
    2002 BMW X5 V8 Sport
    2001 BMW E39 M5
    1998 Mazda MX5 Turbo - The Turbo Mincer now owner by Ian
    2006 BMW 120d Sport
    2005 BMW 530d Sport Touring

    That's 21 so far

    From the first 330d onwards there were three or four owned at any one time.

    I'm sure I've forgotten a couple........

    Are you seeing a theme here?!
    F15 X5 40e family truck
    M135i daily driver inbound
    Shitbox Racing Golf VR6
    Mk2 MX5 - Maybe sometime in the next decade to be a Lexus V8 engine riot.......

    Only ones of any real interest to anyone that I have are

    June 60 Morris mini-minor
    72 Mk1 Escort 2 door
    72 Hillman Imp
    72 Landrover Series 3
    87 Escort turbo
    92 Escort Cosworth

    59 Kawasaki Klx 250

    In a business sense I've broken so so many cars that I possibly couldn't count but I've only ever regretted crushing one and that was a 72 BMW 2002. Even the guy at the scrap asked me if I was sure I wanted to do this....

    My list needs more BMWs, some Porsches, a Range Rover / Disco and something Italian. I'm kinda done with VWs but hope we'll get another van in the future.

    Anyway, lots.

  43. #43
    Owned very few actually (not counting the number of company cars I've had over around 10 years...*)
    Owned: Volvo 940se (1st car I bought, still have it, tucked away...), Mazda 323F (pop-up lights, good fun),
    VW Passat Tdi (still have as daily driver). My next car (most likely soon) will be an E60 BMW 5-series (530d).

    * including my few years in the motor trade when I had a different car to enjoy every week or so, usually beauts;
    Saabs, BMWs, Mercs, Jags, Range Rovers, Porsches, TVRs, Corvettes... none of which were owned by me of course.

    I didn't start owning a car tilli was 19, but my new found wealth as a student kicked things off with a mk2 Astra.

    I think the 'best' car was a beige 1.6 montego!

    I gave up counting and recording car ownership when I breached 50 (have owned over 30 golfs, pretty much allow them gti's)

    Just done a list just now.


    I'm at 55 - sure there are a couple more.


    6 were shared, the rest were mine. Not included cars I've bought from Helen since we met!



    Will add list later - not working properly!


    Mostly boring stuff!
