    I have a 1985 B Reg 956cc Ford Fiesta in Sunflower Blue :oops:

    It only has 4 gears, and the cigarette lighter was a luxury extra the first owner decided not to include.

    I would like (as a realistic next dream car)

    A 1.2 16V Fiat Punto Sporting (in yellow).

    Then I would like the new shape Honda Civic.

    If I ever hit the JACKPOT, I would have a TVR Tuscan Speed 12.

    Current Car: Clio 1.2 Extreme, in light blue.
    Wannabe Car: Audi TT

    Use to have a Gilera Runner 125cc when I was younger, which I loved so wouldnt mind having another one of them. Shame the CBT only lasts 2 years, means I have to do it again :(

    Thing that got to me, was that you have to have L plates until you pass the full test, which I never intended to bother with. So I just had to ruin the bike by having 2 ugly plates on it :(
    Well, I took the one on the front off, but couldnt really get away with taking both off :twisted:

    Quite recently upgraded from a Ford Escort 1.3L estate (1987, like driving a Panzer tank) to a white Rover 414SE 1.6. This thing is huge, but need boot space for amps and gear and stuff. It recently had a infestation of spiders though when I parked under a bush and one crawled across my lap and startled me. Nearly totalled an old lady in Kingston, poor old biddy

    Shitty little red Nissan Micra - the wife made us get it. On the upside, it has never had anything go wrong with it in the five years we've owned it, other than the drive belt coming loose, and has done 30,000 miles without a whimper.

    On the downside, well... it's a Micra :cry:

    I have had a BMW Z3 for a few months as a company car - now THAT was sweet!

    If I get a new car it will probably be a Saab 9000

    simongrahamuk Hmmmmmmm?

    I used to have a Micra, I bought it with 12000 on it and sold it two years later with almost 80000 on it. Not a thing went wrong with it unlike my current car which is getting its third clutch in the near future.

    Its a 1.2 Fiat Punto, Active Sport. Nothing special, but does the job.

    Almost bought a 307 earlier in the week, but decided why get into more debt when my current car still does the job?

    Well the first bike I use is a Suzuki SV 650, '03 model with fuel injection.
    The second is an '82 Suzuki Katana 1100.
    The third is also a Katana, but an '81 model 750 with an 1166 motor built by Peter Bossert.

    I don't have a car but I would like the new VW Tiguan 4WD.

    I drive an Audi A4 1.9 TDI SE in Black, I've had it since Aug 05 and I've only had a few minor things to get fixed. Its going for its MOT this weekend so fingers crossed.

    I'd love to upgrade to a A4 RS4 but thats just a dream I think. :)

    Currently have a Vauxhall Astra 1996 N reg 2.0L sport. Pulls enough for me and has just enough room for G/f and kids to fit on the roof! Car before that was anothe Astra 1997 R reg 1.6 sport was way better until the cam belt went while doing 70mph!

    have had various cars over the years, several Metros, a mini, a fiat uno, Vauxhall corsa 1.4, Ford Escort mk3, Triumph Dolomite (tho that lasted 2 weeks!!) and the best was an old Datsun 120Y i had when i first passed me test!.

    have a beat up old pair of trainers for walking in. have had em for the last 2 years, thinking i now need a new pair!! used to cycle but not bothered now as it knackers me out too much these days so dont own a bike.

    And i dont get along with motorbikes. I've wrecked the 3 i've tried to ride and they all belonged to mates!.
