Re: How often do you change your car?
Sorry to bore you, but here's my list showing my wasted & mispent youth!

1966 Mini Cooper 998, rough, in need of restoration sold on after doing the shell
1972 Escort 1300GT, sold on, bought for my brother, but never did anything to it?

3.0s Capri (white) 1980, superb original car
2.8i Capri, X reg 1982, good, but not too good
3.0s Capri (Silver, kept garaged for 5 yrs!) 1981 always wanted a silver one
Mini Clubman 1275GT (with a 1380 engine) getting back into Minis, can’t seem to leave them alone?
Mini Mayfair (bought my wife’s old mini back) she had owned it for 8 yrs until the gearbox broke
Peugeot 309GTI, wife’s car really, but so clean and a low mileage car, was great and comfortable
Peugeot 205GTI 1.9 in red, cam belt broke so I bought it for spares, but repaired it and sold it on
Peugeot 205GTI 1.9 in black, Cheryl’s car really
BMW 316 (broke up as damaged) was going to repair, but beyond it unfortunately
BMW 316i touring, still here
BMW e23 B10
BMW e28 B9
Ford Sierra 4x4 estate (Mk1 excellent car) bought it of a guy who used it to go around his farm, magic car really
Ford Sierra 4x4 estate (Mk2 crap car) was offered this one from a job I did, he delivered it, so I sold it on.
Ford Sierra 4x4 estate (Mk1 ex rally support car, fair, good road holding) wanted another?
Peugeot 106 Rallye, another excellent car, revved like nothing else.
BMW 318i Touring.
Is there a pattern emerging???
