if you get bored of long stories good bye!
well i joined the army when i was 17, passed my test and bought a mk2 VW golf 1.8 gl in red.
i swore i would never get another red car but still would get another vw golf mk2!!
then after i hammered that everywhere. the rear drivers side wheel fell off and went past me on the a38 near bassets pole round about so i dumped it there and never saw it again. i needed a car and my mates uncle was selling one of these!
i will regret buying this for the rest of my life.
i remember him saying to me when i bought it. 'its just had a new radiator mate its all good' so off i went 2 weeks later the engine ceased as i had blew the 'new radiator' and it had boiled dry. so i went without a car for a while.
in the mean time i was posted off to germany. went off to iraq. came back and al my new mates had ordered tax free cars so naturally i wanted one aswell. i phned a few tax free dealerships as i wanted a mk4 golf 1.4 as it would be good on insurance and ended up getting a 53 reg renault megane 1.4 dynamique.
i hated the car from the word GO!
the second day i had it someone/thing crashed into the side of it and destryed the car,so i saved up and paid for it to be repaired myself (as i didnt want to go through the insurance as i was close to having my first years no claims)
the day i picked it back up after its repair i drove from germany to cornwall to go on hliday with my family, i was driving down a typical cornish back road and came across a mk3 escort going the other way, so i stopped in the layby which was on my side.
i then heard an almighty bang. a huge rock had fell out of the wall and go straight into the same side of the car that had just been repaired!! as you can imagine i was NOT happy!!
anyway back to the story, i went to carcraft in cannock and part-ex'd the megane in for a ford fiesta mk5 zetec-s in moondust silver. i loved it, i had always wanted one since someone in my street had one when i was younger.
so off i went in my new car. it went through having lots of loud speakers in it, big oz wheels etc etc then i came across a group of zs's in cannock and they were all track preped and i knew that was the route i wanted to go, so 3 years after getting the fiesta i stripped EVERYTHING out of it and started on the suspension, roll bars etc etc.
this was me going round donny:
i had the fiesta for a few more years as it was track preped, i did 1 lap of the ring in it, 3 laps of silverstone, and 18 laps of donny in total, then i sold it to a mechanic i knew as he was going to make one good car out of 2 bad as he another zs in his garage.
then i had no car for about 6 months and i hated it but i didnt know what i wanted, then i saw an advert for one of these:
just incase theres anyone that doesn't know what this is, its a Vauxhall Astra VXRacing edition. number 369 out of 444 worldwide!!
i was in love with and living in germany at the time was a dream tax free fuel and as many derestricted roads as you could ever dream of!
anyway i left the army coming on 9 months ago now and kept it for a while but i didnt want to ruin it driving round cornwall where i now live. so i sold it to mark longstaff at Rev It Up UK this guy is amazing!! seamless transition. but yet again i was without a car.
my mom gave me here old car to go to work and back until i found a car i wanted.
it was a honda civic 1.3dx. it got me to work and back and that was all!! lol
so then 3 weeks ago i started looking for a car, i really wanted an audi. i just think they are all so nice a reliable.
and i ended up with my 53 reg 2.0 fsi sport.
heres the pic for N8. heres the yank car dude. it was so much lower than it looks on here. i was amazing!!
