    1998 Volkswagen Polo 6n 1.4cl (brilliant reliable car but started getting rain in!)
    2009 Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec (current)

    2016  FordFocus MK3 RS (current)


    The Fiesta is a cracking car for driving around town and gets abused by the wife / kids. As it’s not worth much it’s great for parking at the supermarket etc and not caring if it gets scratched!

    The Focus gets pampered and only comes out for longer family excursions or for quick blasts

    Cheers Bob, I’ve been blessed with having great cars and clearly developed a love of Turbos. Two Stroke to Turbo (my Saab Guy back in the day) recently bought back my Carlsson from a chap who had it in storage. I went and looked at it, but thankfully someone else had committed to it, (I would not have been able to unless Tim and Fuzz were doing the work + some parts are N/A and non original parts have gone in place).

    Edition, FPM 375

    Some of you guys have had so many cars and still own several cars I’m just a little jealous. I’ve only ever owned 2 at one time and that was only then for a couple of years mind you wifey has never driven so not really any need for more than one car, all have been daily drivers except the MGBGT.

    Ford Escort mk1 1300 in yellow loved it and could you open the door with a coin if you locked the keys inside

    Vauxhall Cavalier 1600 in burgundy first time I was tempted to the dark side and I swore I’d never go there again

    MG Metro 1300 in black I loved this car it was my first “performance” car and got me into car clubs the MG Owners club, no Internet in those days so everything done by post and phone calls, no mobiles either.

    MGBGT 1800 in British racing green. Anniversary edition and my first and last restoration project. Even the wife got involved painting wheels and restoring the bodywork.

    At the same time a second Vauxhall the Chevette in burgundy and grey constantly broke down, I called it the Shove it, and again I swore I’d never stray to the dark side again

    MG Maestro 2000 EFI in red brought about because my son was born and you can’t fit a wife, son, buggy and all associated other crap in a MGBGT

    Nissan Bluebird in grey. Those Japanese knew how to make cars back then all the toys as standard unlike anything made in the UK.

    Ford Escort RS mk2 in grey. Ended up in a ditch after hitting some ice never to run again and I ended in hospital luckily with only relatively minor injuries but the police knocking on the door scared me wife to death

    Rover 418 diesel turbo in red. Company car and first time visiting those dirty pumps where you have to wear gloves

    Rover 418 diesel turbo in green. Company car

    Vauxhall Corsa in red. I know I’ve said twice I’d never own one again but in my defence I won it in a raffle and sold it after one day. Shortest time I’ve ever owned any car

    Ford Mondeo SI in teal

    Subaru Imprezza turbo. First 4 wheel drive car and what a car it was

    Ford Mondeo ST220 in blue. V6 with full leather motorway cruiser with a lot of poke for B roads

    Ford Mondeo 1800 turbo diesel in silver. Another company car

    Ford Fiesta Zetec S mk7 in red. First visit to Ford fair in this car.

    Ford Fiesta ST2 in blue. What a great car performance and road holding way beyond anything else on the market at the time. Mountune 215  purchased at Ford fair. My son and daughter both have one now.

    Ford Focus RS mk3 in Nitrous Blue. Can’t see myself buying any other car as I absolutely love this and it makes my now 30 year old son so envious.
