I thought this might be an opportunity for all you "petrolheads" to post in here of the car's you drive....

It's entirely up to you whether you post pictures or simply list the car (text) in the thread, but knowing how some of you "petrolheads" area, it's usually how proud you are of you car....

Remember though to edit the number plates out of any images you might post..... :happysick:

I'll kick it of for you...

Ooooo! Now, all depending which day of the week and the colour of my outfit, I have to co-ordinate...

I have a pink Morris Minor :) she's awesome
A Ford Mondeno ST220, the latest addition to the stables
A v6 tdi Passat, soon to be up for sale :(
TVR Cerbera with a v8 5.5 AMG Merc SOHC lump (well it's in my name even though it kinda belongs to hubby)
His van (not so interesting but he needs it for work)

One bad thing is the fuel, but it makes up for it in the driving! Beats a 1.25 fiesta

That's kind of my thinking, fuel's so expensive anyway that the fun driving is worth the cost of the fuel... And I'm so impatient, particularly in the summer with loads of sloooooooow tourists on the road that sitting behind them for 40 minutes is no fun on what should be a 20 minute journey. I'd rather have that poke to overtake and be long gone.

It was a good job I had some mechanical training with the mini.
The Datsun was a great car, never put a foot wrong,as I remember it said Datsun on the back and Nissan on the front.
The Ibiza was absolute rubbish, only kept it for a few months.

I've had a few cars:
Started at 15 with a Moggie called Lily, she was the requisite blue and rust colour!
Skoda Felicia called Pamela (the vrm ended TT...)
Golf mk3 called Kermit, hideous bright green colour
Another mk3 Golf, the slightly quicker one, amazing fuel economy
