Right, I'm 51Doh
My first car was a mk1 Escort, then a Fiat 127, then a 2.3 Vauxhall Firenza, I had a DTV "Old Nail" full body kit fitted to it as per the pic below, but mine was white.


I then got into road rallying & had quite a few mk2 escorts, yes that's me below when I was young & long hair was trendy!


It didn't take me long to get p**sed off trying to keep up with people with bottomless wallets, so I thought I'd have a go at them from a different direction.
My Talbot Sunbeam, it had a Lotus Sunbeam rear LSD axle, Escort front suspension & a tuned 3.5 Rover V8 engine.
It was awesome in a straight line (speed trapped at 147mph at Aintree) but hit the accelerator with the wheels turned & you were in a whole heap of trouble.
Me again...


I had to get sensible & had a heap of cars that were basically Shyte.
Had a 309gti, a Laguna then the Rallye......
Watch out for my Corolla nowadays thoughNinja

I'm a buyer at Rolls-Royce aero, I buy LOTS of titanium...

Cool

I think that was probably the first CCC magazine i bought , with Senna trying different rally cars. Allot of the pictures were black and white in those days too!.

Im 46 and have had my 6 for 3 years. Its battered and bruised bodily as I bought it written off as the previous owner lost the rear end on a motorway slip road in the wet. Im slowly working my way through the rest of the car and will keep it forever probably.
My other car is a 309 gti which I have in storage. Ive owned that car from 15000k miles in 1990. Its now stripped out and has had an Mi in it since 1993, one of the second or third cars after Rab Elliots in Scotland. I also used to rally a gp2 rs2000 back in my early twenties , but time and money got the better of that situation-Wish I still had that car now!
Im a time served engineer, laterly working around the world on Pharmacutical machines , but I packed all that in ten years ago and I now run a gastro pub in West Yorkshire.

Love the 309 but I secretly love the 6 a little bit more as it handles that bit better.
Thanks for all the tips and advice and parts over the years on here-Very helpful!!

Oh and im called Jon not Eddie lol

37, had the rallye for 4 years. I'm an assistant manager on a construction site.
Most of my cars have been pugs, 2 x 205xs, 2 x 205 Gti, a 205 gti6, a 306 Dturbo, 1.8 meridian and the rallye. I've bought and stripped many many more 205s and gti6s to maintain the ones I've owned
Started out a ford man and had a mk3 xr3i as my first car. Had a couple of fiat UNOs and a mk5 escort that was the best car I've ever had for snow fun

The best engine in the world is the vagina, it takes any size piston, its self lubricating, starts with 1 finger, and every 4 weeks does its own oil change. It's just a pity the management system is so fecking temperamental.

36, had this XSi for 2 years, but bits of it for 3.5 years.

Owned a 205 GTi for 3 years, a 306 Rallye for 65k miles and 5 years (made it into a V6 too) and i've joint owned a further 14x 306s that were broken for parts.

I move high end supercars for a job so i've driven quite a lot of stuff now. Never a lambo or Aston though (yet)...

Age - 64,
Profession - IT Consultant
GTi6 - X reg, from 4/7/2001 to present.

Along the way I had a couple of GT86's as well, so best of both front and rear wheel drive worlds.

As my daughter said when she delivered my first GT86 to me, new, from the dealer; "Don't think of this as your mid-life crisis. You're far too old for that!"
