I thought you might like to see a few of the cars I have owned over the years, the ones I have pictures of anyway.
My Nissan Bluebird, oh this was a great car, had so much fun in her.
1987 Nissan Bluebird 1.8GS
Next up a rare turbocharged Nissan Bluebird SR
1985 Nissan Bluebird Turbo SR
Nissan Sunny ZX Coupe B12
OK Now we hit the love of my life. If I could have married this thing I would have. Enjoy the multiple picures of this, the most beautiful of all my cars. I am SUCH a muppet for getting rid of her… She is now a cube.
1985 Nissan Silvia S12
Now, while I had the Silvia I managed to find on ebay, for the huge sum of £5.00 (yes thats FIVE pounds) a nice little runabout. Pray silence for… The Micra!
Nissan Micra K10
OK so she doesn’t look like much, but she sailed through the MOT and I had a good 6 months of fun in her, even taking her to shows! But the legend that is this car was just beginning. I sold her to a rally team that was going accoss the Gobi Desert to Mongolia. Yes thats right, It made it…
OK So on to my CRX A good idea but rotten to the core, boy can Hondas rust…
1986 Honda CRX Mk1
Mk 1 MR2 4AGE Rev tastic!
In between, there have been some other, duller cars (Ford Mondeo, Transit(!), Fiat Punto) But now we come to my current car.
1995 EG Civic

Is it any fun? Oh you bet…
2006 1.6 TDCI Fiesta
Well, the fun couldn’t last. After a silly woman reversed into the VW I went looking for fun, economy and family. 2006 Fiesta TDCI, its amazing but has no soul. Watch this space for some soul filled nonsense soon!
2012 Mini One D
Who would have thought it? A BRAND NEW MINI!!! This is just wonderful, I love this car almost as much as I love my Silvia. So much fun, you can feel the Mini DNA in this little baby…
1997 Fiat Cinqecento Sporting
Yes! I have a car to play with! The Mini is far to fragile and expensive but this little thing is just what the doctor ordered! 1103cc of Punto power, mated to a close ratio box and no power steering! Bring on the B roads!
1991 Mazda Eunos Roadster
Ahh! Back in a car from the land of the rising sun! Some people drink, other people smoke to get rid of stress, I get in my Roadster and find some B roads! I bought this to tour the UK looking for the best bits of twisty bits of tarmac blighty can offer
