I guess most of us here are from *****, but it's a good thing- nice people there will translate to nice people here.

Anyway, I'm from Israel and sporting a 1.4T AUTOMATIC (oh yes) Astra J... I'll post more of that car in the appropriate thread.

  My list of cars over the years
Posted by: Migwell030744 - 5:th-Mar-2014, 18:52:28 - Forum: General Chat - Replies (8)

I have shown my Mk6 1.4 Sri Turbo in pictures in another thread but here is the list of cars I have had. Sorry no pics at the moment might find a few when I have time.

My car list from when I was about 21.
No.1 Ford Escort 100E side valve 3 Gears. Bought as a, none runner, it needed to be towed home. Took engine out and sorted various valve problems. Then had the chassis welded because of rust. Cost of car £5
No.2 This was a ford 100E van. Engine blew up on 2nd day Got my £10 back
No.3 A, Morris Minor: I bought it from a friend’s dad with 125000 on the clock. The gearbox fell apart going around a roundabout which also broke the crank shaft that had been knocking for a while, but still driving. Got engine and box from crashed car fitted £40
No.4 Part owned with my Dad A, Vauxhall Victor FB 1600 three speed on the column. In Cactus Green. It towed caravans to Lands’ End & Durness Highland’s in North West Scotland.
No.5 A, Mk1 Cortina 1200 4 door Good car after I put in a recon engine from ford cost £52 then put on twin carbs.
No.6 This was a, Ford Corsair Mk2 1700cc V4. When it needed a new clutch I found that Ford had put in the wrong engine which was a 2Lt V4 and so my insurance went up quite a bit, so it had to go.
No.7 A cream coloured Austin 1000 (Bouncy Car) made you feel sea sick.
No.8 Ford again Cortina Mk2 Estate 1600 re-worked the interior to look like a 1600E Gave suspension a hard time carrying bricks and plasterboard etc.
No.9 Bought a brand new Vauxhall Victor FE Transcontintal 2.3 SL Could do 39MPG at motorway speed with 5 people and full of luggage. I sold it to save up to buy a house & get married in April 1975.
No.10 My wife’s parents bought us a Ford Anglia to use to get to work as where we bought the house there were very few busses. Hand painted it to keep it going.
No.11 A, 4 door Vauxhall Viva, got run into while doing 70MPH. 3rd party did a runner.
No.12 8 various company cars usually Escorts and Orion’s. While we bought a new Ford Fiesta 950L in White. Stolen but recovered two weeks later. It was found in a Ford Garage used car forecourt.
No.13 Bought a 950cc Mk2 Fiesta in Baby blue. EX Demo 3000miles on the clock.
No.14 Rover 1600 Box shape in White.
No.15 Vauxhall Cavalier 1600L a smashing car over all, not much more to say on this one. Our Daughters are starting to drive now.
No.16 New Mk3 Astra Arctic 1600 8valve (to keep insurance down for Daughters driving it)
No.17 Mk4 Astra 1600 LS had three new power steering racks & two steering pumps also three EGR valves all under warrantee.
No.18 Did not like Mk5 Astra so I bought a Ford Focus 1600 Zetec. Best thing about that was heated screen.
No.19 And now My 1.4 Sri Turbo Mk6 Astra. Bought at 12700 has now done 32000 and had a new M32 box apart from brake light switch, NSF door speaker and door harness also window seal. I have fitted, reversing sensors and Mitek Bluetooth, and other bit of lighting.
That’s the lot, now retired so can’t afford to change anymore.
