Whats your car history?

Thought I’d post a list of cars I’ve owned since I started driving. I’m probably the oldest or one of the oldest here :triumph: (passed my test in 1986 at 17).

So here it goes (not all in order and can’t remember all of them)

  • Mini 1100 special (First car)
  • Mini 1275 GT
  • Nova club
  • Nova SR 1.4.
  • Nova GTE 1.6
  • Peugeot 1.6 GTi and 1.9 GTi .
  • Toyota MR2 mk1
  • Vauxhall Calibre
  • Escort popular ( just bought a house)
  • Vauxhall Tigra.
  • Escort GTi
  • Rover 220 GTi
  • Rover GSI
  • Vauxhall Cavalier
  • Civic type R EP3
  • Evo 6
  • Escort GTi ( just bought another house so had to save)
  • XR2i.
  • Astra coupe
  • VW Golf 4 motion 2.8 V6
  • X type Jag 3ltr V6
  • Evo 8 fq300.
  • Subaru STI.
  • Focus ST 225
  • Lotus Elise.
  • Evo 6.
  • Corsa VXR
  • Diahatsu Terios
  • Toyota GT86

Heres a few photos of a couple below:

Definitely missed some off, but that list leads to what I have now, a Corsa VXR Nurburgring edition.

As you can see, my car history has been a bit up and down due to financial reasons and I had some right sh*t ones :joy: but just in case you hadn’t gathered I’m into cars! :grin::grin: Oh, and not to forget, a couple of road and Moto cross bikes can be added to that list :smirk:.

I’m going to keep modding the Corsa VXR as much as I can (then I’ll probably sell it and add to the list!). I’ve got some new bonnet graphics going on soon, then an induction kit, bigger injector’s and a re-map so should be around 235 -240bhp. Then I’ll start work on getting the engine bay looking good. Maybe I’ll tint the front windows and add some underglow :thinking:


That’s an awesome lost of cars some are nostalgic :ok_hand:

What a list that is @Jonnygst!

There’s a few on that list I wouldn’t have minded owning! What do you reckon the best few were?

Looking forward to reading more about the VXR, definitely worth doing a build thread on it over in #members-cars

The last Evo 6 I had was probably the best performance wise and handling the lotus was probably the best looking but not very practical :grin: and not very quick. But going back , my 205 GTi when I was in my early 20s was great fun . Gt86 again was good looking car not exactly fast and not very practical but do miss that for the looks . I’ll try and do some on the vxr has hoping to get things done next year on it .:+1:
