What has BEEN in your garage?
#1
Following on from what else is in your garage?, and what would you like in your garage?, I thought it only right to complete the set with a look backwards.


So, in no particular order, here is a selection of now departed cars that I have owned in the past.


Audi Coupe Quattro 2.2

Volvo 850 GLT

VW Golf R32

Not sure why the title has appeared twice at the top of the post? Andre, perhaps you could have a look and fix it?




2005 Berlingo Multispace 1.6i Desire (Iron Grey)

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Me too :'(

Mine was an ex challenge car that my brother had raced for a season from new and had survived relatively intact. It was the 1.4 K series but engine built by Minister so around 140-145bhp. 5 speed box, LSD, competition exhaust and sticky Avons made for a lot of fun Big Grin

My list is rather prosaic compared to the above.

1969 VW Bug bought new in 1969 after I got back from Vietnam. After 200K miles rebuilt the engine on Christmas break in grad school. Sold to friend in 1981 and he's put 500K miles on it since.

Then a 1981 Toyota long bed pickup. Sold it in 1992.

Moved to Europe and bought a 1992 Nissan Sunny GTI and drove it until it rusted out last year and then got my present Berli.
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP.  Persamos green.

Had a white 2ltr laser Capri.
And have never lived in Essex!
Had a TR7 convertible recently.
Not sure what that says about me??
Oh yes, bad taste in cars.
Until recently, of course.:woop:

I had a string of Fiat Uno's before seeing the light (& having 2 B great dogs) & buying a C15 van.That was a great machine,the only thing against it was it's top speed.But I drove it with hare & tortoise in mind.It's still going with over 200,000 miles & no trouble at all.But the Berlingo is luxury after that.

Nothing special, last car i had was a peugeot 407 2.0hdi 136bhp, quick, good on fuel, very comfortable but unbelievably unreliable, other cars in no particular order;

Astra van 1.7DTI
Astra 1.6 16V
Fiat punto 1.9JTD
Peugeot 406 2.0 16v
Suzuki swift 1.0 3cylinder, not very quick but really good on petrol and in 5 years it never let me down
Fiat cinqucento 900cc, surprisingly good car, 55mpg, comfy, very roomy in the front, not so much in the back and a piece of cake to park, you could drive it into spots you couldn't reverse a normal sized car in to.

Had a mini when I was 19, it rusted just about everywhere, it was slow and being six foot tall I had to alter the seat mountings to move the seat further back to make it mor comfortable to drive.

I'm 5'11" and I had to have the seat right back on mine to drive it - got rid of it as it had a fault where everything would stop working except for the headlights :eek:

probably the fuse box, they were under the bonnet and were prone to corrosion, they only had 4 fuses in them!!
