Ultima GTR
Vauxhall Signum 1.9d

Great motoring decade for me with by far the most bhp per year!! (Note i bought the Signum as the dog wouldn't fit in the Alfa!)

I spent the entire decade in the motor trade, in one form or another, and made it my duty to drive as many cars as possible so frequently went through 7 a week. Comfortably in excess of 500 different cars.

Highlights and lowlights:

A £1 Vauxhall Victor
E39 M5 (felt a bit dull, but I probably needed a few hundred miles of Motorway to enjoy it)
Ferrari Mondial Cabriolet
A lot of Saab 900s
A £1 VW Beetle
Porsche Boxster
Renault Sport Spider (in the rain, with no roof)
A lot of Rolls Royce Silver Shadows
A lot of Bentleys
Some very big Brabus Mercedes S-Classes (7.0 V12 was the biggest)
Some Impreza Turbos (which always felt like sitting in a very fast Nissan Micra)
A £1 Montego
BMW 740i
Mazda Xedos 9
Mazda RX-7 (paid £400 for it - taxed, MoT'd and with an engine rebuilt by RoTechnics)
A Range Rover I was given for free (well, in lieu of payment)
Some 2CVs (one of which caught fire on the way to the scrapyard)
Ferrari 308 GTS
A rusty Delta Integrale before they were worth anything
A Ford Cougar 2.0 (which was surprisingly fun)
A Saab 9000 (which wasn't)
A six-wheel Hustler
A Hungarian-registered Isuzu car transporter (best not to ask)
One of the first Smart Cars in the UK
A Daimler V8 250
An MGB GT

The absolute highlight was this:

I had a go in one with only 330bhp and I thought it was quick. I bet yours really did shift for sure. driving

I was very close to buying the one I had for 24hrs, but I went in the direction of the TVR instead. I've always loved an Evo though. thumbup
