    MG metro 1.4 – Mums car but i drove it into the ground, literally
    Renault 5 GT Turbo – F reg from memory, red, fast as all buggery. My dad rolled it.
    Peugeot 205 1.9 GTi – Fantastic car, sold when at Uni to pay for beer and it was not used much
    Sappire Cosworth – why not ? Moonstone blue, bought for a song as ‘turbo was blown’, except it wasn;t and was fixed for 20 quid.
    Subaru Leone 1989 – snow tyres and dents, perfect skifield car when i was a ski instructor in NZ
    Diahatsu 4×4 thing – massive mistake.
    WRX hatch – Black and fast
    Wrx Hatch – Green and faster/more modern
    Subaru Forester XT – Turbo, was like driving a high speed boat
    Subary Legacy 2.5 – nice, bought as a tax avoidance strategy – later gifted to now wife
    Wrx Hatch – Blue even more moderner
    Audi S3 – hateful thing, shocking ride quality
    Porsche 993 Targa – best investment ever
    Audi RS4 Avant – nice car, large bills when it went wrong
    Porsche GT3 – amazing – if i lived on a race track
    VW Transporter T5 – Useful, ate driveshafts
    VW Golf R DSG – nice chassis, hateful gearbox
    Ren Megane RS225 – boxy french high speed hairdryer
    VW California – can stop en route to work and make a cup of tea.
    (pending) 993 Turbo – sold to my wife as an investment in reality if I survive a few years without a fireball i will be doing well.
    I really need to not buy cars.
