I lost count quite some time ago. It must be over 40 anyway, and that's just counting the ones that have served as transport.

Probably one of the lowest or the lowest on the board....I'm on my 6th in 8 years, although I've only been driving for 6 years. 4 of those 6 cars I've currently still got! :lol: I tend to get attached to my cars! :mrgreen: :roll:


EDIT: if we extended it to how many vehicles have we owned or driven, I'd have a few more to add. Although mostly boring modern things for work purposes when they were new or newish. i.e. 2002 Astra MkIV estate 1.7 DTI, 2002 Vectra MkII in 2.0DTI & 1.8 petrol guises, 2002 Fiesta MkV(?) or is it facelifted MkIV(?) either way it was the post millennium update to the frowny MkIV Festa, 2006 Ford Galaxy 1.8 diesel driven the other week across UK, France, Belgium, Holland & Germany, dad's 1997 Chrysler Voyager 2.0 LE around a car park in the days before I could drive back in the late 90s, 2006 Mercedes Sprinter luton van during our house move back in August (surprisingly easy to drive), 1999 Peugeot 306 XS 1.8 currently on loan to me as mentioned in another thread, Mr Bickle's 1984 Fiat Strada 1500, late 90s (prob T or V reg) MkI Corsa during driving lessons, 2000 Fiat Punto MkII during more lessons - also passed in, 1996 Ford Fiesta MkIV belonging to my driving instructor uncle who I went out for a spin with before I had passed.
Thank that's alll

Actually that's also true of me, in my defence I haven't, wouldn't & couldn't have anything run-of-the-mill despite everybody around me nagging me to get something 'sensible'. Every one of my cars has been very old, rare or unusual in some way or all three! :D

Had a licence since 2004 so I've had 6, 3 of which I own now :(

I would have had more, but factors like time, money, space etc... have stopped me in my tracks in buying some incredibly great cars.

My dad was also in the motor trade, but again, bloody time, no bloody money and no bloody space :evil:

Cars that I've been registered keeper of: 4. Paltry I know, but the first car I bought *was* (and still is) a Citroen GSA Estate 8) So my figures are Own=2, Scrapped=2The scrappers:91 Citroen BX16 (HG failure, off road too long to return to road cheaply)75 Citroen GS (I drove it once. Short story is it sat at someone's farm for over three years awaiting MOT work, which never got done). Cars I've part owned or been named driver for, or have been in the family (driven on "any other vehicle" insurance policy): 1007 Honda Jazz (girlfriend's current car)80 Citroen GSA (joint purchase, now given to a friend to fix up and then will be sold)88 Nissan Micra (girlfriend's previous car)91 Citroen BX14 (joint ebay purchase with a friend, now sold)81 Citroen GSA (I babysitted this car for a while for the above friend. Sold and now lives in Belgium I think!)86 Citroen BX (borrowed from the above friend for a short time)93 Renault Clio (car dad bought for my sister, was then passed onto my brother.... now sadly scrapped due to neglect)89 Nissan Micra (car dad bought for me and my siblings to share. Sadly scrapped following vandalism at my brother's uni...)94 Ford Mondeo GLX (I borrowed this from my dad for a short time when he owned it)90 Ford Escort (parents' car, the one I learnt to drive in and borrowed after I passed) Cheers,Mark.
