Well, if you can't beat them...then might as well join them...

So, here are the cars I've owned here in the UK:

I had a Blue 1.1 fiesta B reg for a short time that was until a slow moving lorry pulled out on me and total the front end. Still got 200 quid from the local scrap merchant.

That was when I was down to public transport. I learnt my lesson not going there again.

a few of the vehicles I've owned

these are just some that stretch over 45 years of driving.
my favorites not including my cougar in no particular order were Ford Thunderbird owned during RAF service in Germany 1962.
Nissan 100 NX fantastic little sporty car pity the rear turrets rust so badly.
Rover 827 vitesse nearly as quick as the cougar.

Yep, I've had a few cars in my time. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of them. Some of the more exciting ones were Ford Zephyr V6, the one with the very long bonnet and the sights on the front of it for ligning up when you are parking. Mk 1 Lotus Cortina in Green with a white go faster stripe. Mk 2 Cortina 1600E in Black with JPS gold pinstriping. Mk3 Cortina 2000E in gold. Capri 2Litre S - had two of them. Granada 2.8GL - the working man's Rolls Royce. 5 different 24V Probes, one of which I bought brand new. And now I have the CAT.
