    Whats everyones car history?

    Seeing as i'm fairly new on here thought i'd see what everyones gone from and too car wise.

    I'm 20 years old now, started off with a Silver Corsa which I bought just before I turned 17, had it a good 3 years, never let me down, was a fantastic car, great fun and a real headturner. Anway its time came to an end the end of last year, sometimes I miss it but the S3 is soo much better in many ways. Anyway this is what the Corsa looked like when I sold it on.






    Then I got my 2nd car, the S3. It may not be perfect, but I get such a buzz everytime I drive it, always brings a smile to my face. So far its proving quite costly to run, but worth every penny.





    Here is a pic of them together from a few weeks ago when I went to a meet and so did the lad who bought my Corsa.



    Anyway thats it so far for me, whats next? I don't know yet, for the moment the S3 is perfect. Maybe an Evo which i've always had a soft spot for but for the time being I can't think of alot else i'd rather be in for the money.

    I've owned 4 cars total in 15 years of driving, of which I still own 3. Only other one was my first car, a 1989 F reg Polo C in white which I bought in 1994 and sold in 1997 to buy the Ibiza.

    Edit: and I'm 33.

    Honda Integra Type R
    Subaru Impreza STI
    Honda S2000

    Ive missed a few in between cars off the list, mainly not very interesting car in between buying houses etc when cash was required!

    Ive not kept any of them longer than 2 years I dont think, no idea how long Ill keep the S3, to be fair its a bit of an in between car while another house is being purchased. I keep toying with buying something like a 911 but cars depreciate so badly and bricks and mortar go the other way!

    Ill post some pics later.

    ...and you've both got yellow uns too, aaah.
    When I think of someone who is 20, I think of them as being roughly my age. When I hear that would mean they were born in 1986, it makes me feel very very old..... and I'm 29. Christ knows what it feels like in 10 years......

    It feels horrendous mate, but you dont feel any older until you hear things like DOB's.

    I'm 25...

    1. Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 (Mk3)
    2. Saxo VTS
    3. Honda CRX (Del Sol) - 1.6 VTEC
    4. Astra SRI 2.0
    5. Audi A3 1.9 TDI (PD130)

    IMO the Audi and Honda had the best build quality but the VTS was the most fun to drive (pretty good on fuel too considering how I battered it)

    christ guys! how do you afford to buy an S3 aged 20?

    im a student at uni, and i found it hard to buy and now run my A3 1.8T.

    if we are talking road cars, ive had 4 so far,

    started off with my mini, 998cc of madness, which blew up after 4 days.

    ran a citroen ZX 1.9D reflex after that for 3 months whilst sorting the mini out, 4 engines later, the mini was running with a whopping 79bhp through a mildly tunned 1275

    ran that for a year, changing all the time, until the 1275 finally gave out. had my dads old audi 80 estate for a few months, whilst i built up a 1380 monster engine for the mini.

    ran the mini for another year on the 1380, making 115bhp, before electrical gremlins set into the 16year old wiring loom, and i decided it was time to grow up and buy a sensible car, and bring the mini back to life some time this summer when i can afford it.

    so i bought the audi, which was pretty dull to be honest, so its been transformed with a Revo remap, which has made it much more fun to drive


    cars in general, i dont really know how many ive had, its somewhere around 20-25 i think.

    i started grasstrack racing aged 11, and raced in all manner of cars until i was 16.

    had around 9 minis
    few metros
    cavalier SRI
    capri 2.0
    mk3 XR3i
    mk4 XR3I
    mk3 1.6 escort
    mk2 1.1 fiesta
    mitsubishi colt 1.2

    i cant actually think of any others atm, but there have been a few more.

    current stable includes the audi as a dailly driver
    my first road mini as a weekend toy for this summer-going to be hillclimbed next year.
    a mk3 1972 mini, with a monster swiftune motor pushing 138bhp, future rebuild into all out track car
    mk1 1300 ghia escort in bright orange. planning a rebuild with a 2ltr pinto on webbers. not exactly quick, but itll be fun

    i do miss my mini

    X-reg 306: ECU threw a spaz
    X-reg 306: emergency convenience purchase; owned for about a month before p/x with...

    Started driving at 17....been a bit interesting!

    First car was Mk1 Golf, with BBS cross poke style wheels on. Got written off, compo claim paid for spanking new Clio MTV.
    Sold that for Mk3 Golf GTi Anniversary (8v). Sold that for

    Ford Racing Puma #66 (1 of 80 with LSD)


    Sold that for a Clio V6



    Grew up and bought a house....so that went for a 172....



    Found my feet again a year later...bought a VX220...



    Got chance of another house, sold the VX and got a Clio trophy at very good money.....



    ran that for two months, sold it and made a bit of cash. Made way for the current ride...





    Then I got spoilt, someone lent me this for a weekend.....
