    Jesus, that's some list!

    I've had;

    Ford Fiesta Popular (Flimsy piece of shit that was actually pretty fast if you didn't mind destroying the gear box, which I didn't)
    Ford Fiesta Ghia Automatic (Had some weird gearing system where it never changed gear but just varied the gearing incrementally)
    VW Camper (Bay window, still own this but don't drive it)
    Train/Bus/Legs
    Open your heart. Die.

    Good thread!

    1987 Nissan Micra 1.0
    Most people's first cars are usually pretty shit and this is no exception but I loved it. It was ten years old when I got it with 110K miles on it. Only had it 12 months.

    1995 Vauxhall Corsa Merit 1.2
    Much more modern.

    1997 Vauxhall Vectra GLS 2.0
    My first grown up car. Got this when the first kid was born and we couldn't get the pram in the boot of the Corsa.

    1999 Ford Mondeo LX 1.8 TD
    This was a dog of a car, really didn't like it but the diesel made sense due to my commute.

    2001 Toyota Avensis CDX 2.0
    I loved this car due to all the toys (sat nav, CD changer etc), had it for about 6-7 years which is a record for me.

    2009 Renault Megane Dynamique 1.5 dCi
    Not a lot to say about this one. Downsized a bit seeing as we didn't a boot full of toys and prams any more. Plus the fuel economy was killing me so went back to diesel.

    2013 Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.5 diesel.
    My current car. Drives brilliantly, cheap to run (69 mpg is my current record), and is specced well enough to be comfy. I can see me keeping this for a good few years.

    I'll get the pics up later when I'm on the laptop as tapatalk is rubbish for uploading.
