I believe this topic has been covered earlier, but quite a while ago!! In a way it makes me feel somewhat inadequate, as I've owned relatively few cars- certainly nothing to compare with a list like that!!1st car was a then 10yr old '65 4 door Mk 1 Cortina GT. Possibly still my all time favourite. Written-off whilst parked outside my student digs.2nd a '66 4 door Cortina GT. Rotten as a pear!3rd a '71 Triumph 1500. Lovely car.4th an 850 Mini- can't even remember what year it was!!5th 1000 Mini van. An absolute HOOT!!6th Mk 3 Cortina 2000E estate. I LOVED that car. Killed by tin-worm7th Mk 4 Cortina 2000E saloon. Oddly, lacked the charisma of the Mk 3.8th Phase 1 Renault 25 GTX. The start of a love afair!! Owned it for 10 years, and have had 3 others since, including my current one.

Is there such a thing as a UK Polo Mk2 GT by the way? I thought they were rebranded Coupe S in the UK.

Since everybody else i joining in,
Not a terribly interesting line-up, mainly of the early-'90s sub-£200 variety, apart from the oldest two. It's rare that something interesting comes up locally and I have money at the same time.:(

cant remember all the years but here goes (past my test in 1991) some of the years may be wrong but they're as close as I can remember, plus I have owned more than one car at a time, some were winter cars to keep the 'good car' off the road in the slippy season.1981 Vauxhall Chevette Silhoutte Vauxhall Viva1982 Vauxhall Astra 1300S1983 Vauxhall Astra 1600 ESP1983 Vauxhall Astra GTE1977 Ford Fiesta 1300S1982 Mini Metro1980 Ford Fiesta XR21975 Mini 1000 Mini 1275GT Mini Pick Up1981 Ford Fiesta XR2 Mini Metro1987 Fiat Croma Ford Escort RS2000 (MK2) Bedford HA Van1991 BMW 325i1980 Nissan Bluebird 2.0l1982 Escort XR31988 Escort XR3i1990 Astra GTE 16v1991 Golf GTI 5 door - my sister still has this as her 2nd car :D1990 Golf Cabriolet1970 Mini Clubman stretched by a foot and a half and made in to a cabriolet1988 Fiesta XR21986 Escort SE Cabriolet1986 Cavalier SR1991 Cavalier SRI 1301991 Cavalier GSI20001994 MR2 Mitsubishi 3000GTO LHD1996 Toyota MR21992 MR2 Turbo1990 Renault 5 GTturbo (still have this)1985 Vauxhall Nova Saloon 1990 Nissan Micra (this got me in and out of Manchester daily and never missed a beat)1990 318i1991 VW Golf GTI1996 Fiat Bravo1996 Rover 216SLi 16V2001 Saab 9-5 (now the Wifes car)2002 MG ZR2003 Merc C Class1997 Renault Extra Van1993 Vauxhall Cavalier1991 Audi 100 Estate there's probably a load I've missed here as I'd sometimes only keep a car for a few days before getting shut but I think the Fiat Croma is my shortest lived car of 3 hours before I swapped it with a mate for his RS2000, his fault for having kids :D

:D But what would you get after the Stellar?My sad list:License somewhere in 2001 I think: took a while after that, mainly drove the band's 1990 Transit or my sister's Volvo 440 Automatic, July 2004 we bought the Starlet (1991), May 2006 I bought a 1969 Corolla Sprinter, swapped it in April 2007 for a 1971 Simca 1100, sold that one in September. I want a shitey second car again just for fun, but the Starlet looks pretty shite too and is a keeper reliability- and costwise.

Don't know! Pog didn't do me any favours by reminding me of the Kia Clarus, but the Daewoo Espero is getting very tempting. Especially in poverty spec with the 1.5L engine..... with an autobox.....

I passed my test in '96 IIRC. My first car was a 1983 Ford Escort van (CVG514Y). My latest purchase is a Ford Transit van (L reg). In between there have been somewhere around 200-220 assorted vehicles, which I'm not going to even attempt to list here. However, here are some of the highlights:

Second car: 1985 Citroen Visa 14TRS
Third car: 1982 Opel Manta 1.8 GT/J
Oldest: 1934 Hillman Minx
Newest: 2001 Volvo S40 1.6
Cheapest: Several freebies, best of which were probably a 1989 Rover 216 Vanden Plas and a 1991 Nissan Sunny ZX coupe.
Most expensive: 2001 Volvo S40 1.6, £1600
Fastest: 1989 BMW 750iL
Slowest: Probably on paper the 1934 Minx, but the slowest car I've ever owned was a 1043cc Mk2 Golf which was only running on two cylinders. It took 18 seconds to reach 30mph from a standing start.
Biggest: 1976 Ford LTD station wagon. 20'6" long, 6.6-litre V8. Actually, strictly speaking the Leyland Roadrunner was bigger, but that doesn't really count. And it had a smaller engine than the LTD.
Longest owned: 1972 Volvo 164 - 3 1/2 years and counting
Worst: 1967 Reliant Regal 3/25
Best: Couldn't possibly comment...
Current fleet:
1970 Citroen DS Safari
1972 Volvo 164
1975 Volvo 245
1978 Saab 900 Turbo
1979 Peugeot 304 estate
1982 Vauxhall Carlton estate
1986 Renault 9 Turbo
1990 Mazda 121
1994 Ford Transit 80 van
1994 Saab 9000 Turbo
1995 Ford Mondeo 2.5 Ghia X estate
1996 Subaru Justy
2000 Alfa Romeo 166 Twinspark

I've posted before but I like wuvvum's thinking, so shamelessly copying a little:

Oldest: 1978 Opel Rekord 2.0 S Berlina
Newest: 1999 Honda Accord 2.0 LS
Cheapest: Whilst my Rover was free it stands me at about £200 so far in new parts (clutch, exhaust, service bits and electrics); so it has to be the 1993 Cavalier 1.6 with 10 months MOT and 4 months tax for £57.59
Most expensive (and highest depreciating): The Accord, £5,400 in 2003 and sold for £1,800 in 2006 (new owner got a peach...)
Fastest: 1994 Vauxhall Omega 3.0 Elite manual, 144mph on the 'bahn
Slowest: 1978 Ford Fiesta 1.1L, 85 on the clock in the outside lane of the M3 was top whack, holding up the reps and turning my trousers brown
Best handling: My current 405 - particularly now I have fitted new shocks and suspension bushes
Worst handling: 1985 BMW 528i - opposite lock everywhere
Most economical: The Pug gets around 50 to a gallon of DERV
Least economical: Mk1 Senator 2.5 at 22mpg - and it was a manual!
Most practical: 1993 Mitsubishi Sigma estate, or the Omega
Least practical: 1984 Honda Prelude - rear seat no use to man nor beast
Longest owned and most reliable: Accord again - 3 years and 60k miles with nothing outside servicing and tyres
Shortest owned: The Cav and the Rover 420SLi were owned for less than a month, but must be the 1990 Volvo 440 that I sold after 2 days
Worst: 1992 Rover 214 Si that snapped a cambelt within 20 miles of purchase
Best: The Opel (although the '79 I bought later wasn't so good)
Honourable mention: 1984 Audi 80 quattro, for peerless traction, wonderful engine note and most profit on sale

Passed my test in '94 and have had about 25 cars since my first in '96. Only been able to have more than one car for the last 3 years now I have more space - in that time I've probably had about 15. Record is 6 at once; doesn't hold a candle to Messers Wuvvum, Bo11ox and Bickle but tested my wife's sanity to the limit...

2003 Renault Espace IV 2.0 petrol - living up to its reputation...

OK, my earlier post was a bit of a cop-out as I was half watching Top Gear at the time. The fact that I have absolutely no idea how many vehicles I've owned is a bit embarrassing, so I'm going to attempt to list as many as I can. There's no way this is going to be an exhaustive list, but it'll be a start...Going to start with trucks, vans and bikes as I've had fewer of those so easier to remember.1984 Dodge 50 spec lift recovery1990 Leyland Roadrunner 8.15 Turbo flatbed1990 Dodge 50 beavertail recovery1986 Freight Rover spec lift recovery1989 Iveco Daily beavertail recovery1980 Ford D series D0710 beavertail recovery1983 Ford Escort 35 van1982 Bedford HA van1988 Honda Acty1990 Ford Transit 190 LWB petrol1990 Leyland Daf 200 series diesel (sliding cab doors FTW)1986 VW LT40 2.4 petrol1994 Bedford Midi 2.4 TD1995 Iveco Daily 35.8 MWB1989 Leyland Daf 200 series turbo diesel (Montego engine)1993 Fiat Ducato 1.9D1988 Renault Trafic LWB 2.1D1993 Vauxhall Astramax 1.4 petrol1996 Ford Transit 190 LWB TD1976 Dodge Commer Walkthrough burger van1990 Leyland Daf 400 series 2.5D (sliding doors again)1990 VW LT35 D1990 Leyland Daf 200 series petrol1988 Bedford Rascal1995 Renault Master LWB 2.5D1994 Ford Transit 80 SWB petrol1974 Toyota Hiace camper1977 Ford Transit camper1984 Vespa PK501980 Yamaha RS1001982 Honda CB125T1984 Honda CD125T1988 Yamaha DT501979 Yamaha RS1001980 Honda C901984 Yamaha Salient1984 Suzuki CS125 Roadie1972 Honda CB125S1989 Kawasaki AR1251980 Honda CB250 Superdream1988 Kawasaki Z250 Scorpion1988 Honda CB350S1978 Honda CB400A1979 Honda CB400A2005 Xinling XL50QTB2005 Morana JX125T1984 Honda Spacy 125 (pop-up headlight 8) )2006 ??? ??? 200 (some Chinese thing I can't remember the name of)1995 Kawasaki GPZ500S1981 Suzuki GSX2501974 Mobylette AV411977 Yamaha V90And now to the cars...

blimey Wuvvum. Must work out at a car a month!I passed my test in 1991, so most of my cars are of shite era. I've owned around 20-25, included some shared cars with some idiots.Most troublesome : 1975 Renault 12 Auto - french electrics.Most popular with the birds - 1970 VW 1302S - I was young.Most reliable - Most Datsuns - especially the sunnys.Most expensive without driving more than 50 miles - 1973 Datsun 120A - cheap to buy, 6 years of costly storage.Most fun - 1982 Citroen 2CV6 - 50mph round corners, taking shortcuts over fields, driving up and along the downs.Most motorway miles - 1982 Saab 900 - effortlessly cruised at 80-90mph.Most utterly conventional - Peugeot 106 happyshopper - needed for work related 'respectibility'Most understated all rounder - 1983 Peugeot 205 - for sale incidently ;)Most likely to get me stopped by the fuzz - 1981 Datsun Sunny fastback - different coloured panels, missing parts, red wheels, no seats etcMost expensive initial outlay - 1997 Peugeot 106 Rallye - lots of fun to drive too.Most rustiest - close thing between my 1st Datsun 100A and a 1981 Renault 5 - the datsun was 90% filler, the renault suspension collapsed on the A329.Most love/hate relationship - 1985 Alfa 33 - a dream to drive and to listen to, a swine to start and maintain.Most pimp - 1986 BMW 320i - actually a superb car, but had dubious drug dealer connotations.Most missed - 1989 Volvo 240 - utterly dependable and undemanding.Most wierdest - 1984 Honda Jazz - such a wide but short car , but really practical.Most famous - 1982 Colt Galant - Nigel, PC and now hirst owned the car!Most surprisingly quick - Vauxhall Belmont - very quick for some reason.Most shite - Toyota Carina - encompasses everything in shiteness.
