    Pictures please :)

    I passed my test and was gifted an Escort 1.6 GHIA by my parents (google photo)

    [​IMG]

    Then when I jacked that up and the jack went through the floor it was time for a change:

    Peugeot 306 D Turbo

    20062007068.jpg

    Followed by a 306 GTI-6 (wicked fun car)

    SDC10050.JPG

    Someone decided to scratch the bonnet on the GTI so I lost the love for it and bought myself:

    Seat Ibiza Cupra, has it remapped to 180bhp and the car was awesome fun, proper little pocket rocket.

    fullsizeoutput_1dd5.jpeg


    Then got bored of that so bought (Yeah I know)

    Subaru Impreza Limited edition P1, fantastic fun car, 280 bhp and was a proper rocket.


    fullsizeoutput_6493.jpeg fullsizeoutput_10f8.jpeg


    Then we moved to the Isle of Wight and switched back to another 306 GTI-6 in a swap deal for the Scooby

    IMG_0245.JPG

    Then to a 1.4 TDCI Fiesta (trying to find a photo)

    And bought, after literally paying a few hundred for it, yes, another GTI-6 for a bit of fun which is still sat in my garage unused after having a fuel leak and weird knocking sound (soon to be scrapped)

    IMG_2852.JPG

    To be continued.... (as I have hit the photo limit for post)

    Then after originally leaving the house to go buy a Megane I bought this:

    IMG_4855.JPG


    Then after literally 3 months and hating the stupidly underpowered 1.6 engine I went a bit newer to a dirty diesel


    IMG_0655.JPG
    IMG_0555.JPG



    So come on, Im sure there is some fantastic car history out there, lets see em :)

    The reason for so many pugs is my step dad is a master tech for Peugeot so I get cost price parts and free labour, got bored of them and their build quality though and moved to vag cars nearly 5 years ago now, shame your scrapping the gti-6, you don't see many of them around these days

    shame there's no pics!

    Yeah I'll probably put it up on the gti-6 forum and see if anyone is interested in restoring it up. Probably won't take much to be fair.

    Just nicked the images from google, as close a colour match as I could find...

    1st car
    [​IMG]

    2nd
    [​IMG]

    3rd - 1st car with any 'reasonable' performance - 1.8TD escort
    [​IMG]

    Bought my 1st house and it was so close to work, I got shot of the escort and bought a scooter - that was actually fun for the 1st time on 2 wheels

    upload_2017-4-24_13-15-34.jpeg

    New job, needed 4 wheels again...

    upload_2017-4-24_13-18-26.jpeg

    2nd child came along, needed more space for prams etc...

    upload_2017-4-24_13-19-26.jpeg
    Hated the Peugeot, was glad to see it replaced with an Alfa 159

    upload_2017-4-24_13-20-51.jpeg
    upload_2017-4-24_13-21-8.jpeg

    And then in more recent years....
    [​IMG]

    upload_2017-4-24_13-22-8.jpeg
    upload_2017-4-24_13-31-54.jpeg
    [​IMG]

    Favourites out of that lot would be Fiesta (everyone loves there 1st car, don't they?) the Alfa 159 and the BMW X6 with a tip of the hat to the not so fast (40mph top speed) but great fun 100cc Honda moped :)

    Would love a new car but have had zero problems with my 08 Polo, apart from replacing one bulb. It's sailed through the last 4 MOT's without a single advisory so scared to rock the boat :laugh:

    Passed my test in 1990 at 17: -

    Ford Escort XR3, not a 'I' (Y reg) purchased at 16, passed my test in it at 17!
    Ford Capri 3.0S (V reg)
    Ford Sierra 2.0i Ghia (B reg)
    Ford Escort Van, full RS Turbo conversion by me (E reg)
    Bedford Astravan, Full GTE 16v conversion by me (D reg)
    Fiat Uno Turbo i.e (C reg)
    Ford Escort XR3i (E Reg)
    Ford Sierra RS Cosworth (E reg) Still best of the lot!!
    Ford Orion 1.8 16v Ghia Si (J reg)
    Ford Escort RS Turbo (G reg)
    Ford Granada Scorpio 24v Cosworth (K reg)
    Ford Mondeo 2.0 Si (L reg)
    *Mercedes C200 Sport (V reg, new) 100k miles
    *Mercedes E200 Kompressor Avantgarde (X reg) 140k miles
    *Audi A4 1.8T 190 S-Line (54 reg) worse car ever!! 105k miles, Multitronic gearbox failure and lost a lot of money hence next car.
    *Vauxhall Corsa 1.3 CDTI Ecoflex (10 reg) 100k miles (now daughter's car, still going strong at 120k!)
    *BMW 320d M-Sport (11 reg) 85k miles
    *BMW 520d M-Sport (14 reg) Current Car

    Wow typing that list brought back some memories (and head scratching as I don't have photos of all of them so may have missed a few! does not include SWMBO cars I have brought) The first half of that list was whilst I was working at a ford main dealer as a mechanic from age 16-20 so buying/selling/fixing up was a way of making money on the side ;)

    *The last 6 have run up high miles due to my work/commuting.
