Motorsport and cars are not a hobby - they are away of life. Can be seen at a UK track almost every weekend between March and November. Happy to meet up with fellow Pistonheads when time and location allow.
'87 1.3 Maestro City - Sorry, I loved it and it scalpped many a badly driven XR3i etc
'92 MkIII 1.4 Golf - Nice handling, all the power of a wet fart
'96 Renault Clio RSi - Put 1.2 badges on and left many uneducated VTR owner wondering WTF happened. Not to mention 8v VW GTi owners.
'96 MkIII Golf Gti 16v - Gone but I miss her almost every day. The most complete car I have ever owned. Would still have it now if i had my way.
'98 Audi A6 2.4 Avant - 90% of the time I loved it for it's ability to eat 100's of miles at a stretch without effort, I could even forgive it's drink problem and Audi service bills.
'98 Porsche Boxster 2.5 - No longer needed more than two seats so fun time.
'93 Porsche 968 CS - Bliss. Part of me says after 2 years it is time to chop it in and get a GT3. Part of me realises that short of impending homelessness it is unlikely to ever leave me.
'95 Porsche of CS - White with black wheels. Bought on a whim as a rolling spares package for the yellow one but too good for that so being stored away and used on high days and holidays by a collector I know well to keep in good nick.
96' MkIII Golf Gti 8v Colour Concept. Was going to be taken into a field and shot but sold on.
'08 Golf GT Tdi - bought it unseen, chipped and does donkey work like a pro.
I'm fortunate enough to have a Petrolhead for a girlfriend and if I'm good she lets me play with her toys ;)
'96 TVR Chimera 4.0 - There are faster Tivs, newer and more plush ones, but this car has a real heart!
'03 TVR Tamora - bought unseen. We love it!
'07 Mazda MX 5 Roadster 2.0 Sport - Something for the Winter months.
Yet to own a car that I didn't think could be improved by the addition of at least 100bhp
Been lucky to drive tons of other cars of all types and desirability.
