I've had loads of stuff over that past 18 years from the ***** (1600 mk3 orion ghia) to the great (S14 Sylvia - before they all got drifted) so these are the latest 3.
I also still own my first car, a 1275 mini, which will make a reappearance one day.

The previous one: Legacy 3.0R Spec B (6MT) 272hp

0F093323_zps81367f7f.jpg

The current one: 2.2 CDTI approx 190hp

The next one: E30 316i. Getting a Saab B204 transplant, approx 380hp.

Seems I have a thing for blue wagons.

Man, she wears those wheels so well. They really suit! I'm almost tempted to get something similar.

It's the n/a flat 6, but it was a spec B with the bilsteins, quick rack, alloy bonnet, 6 speed manual, LSD's etc. I added the brembos and the stainless exhaust.

It was the practical car I bought when we had our first kid. Put 90k on it with no trouble over 5 years.
Sold it because a new opportunity meant a £35 a day fuel bill. 18 months on, I still wish I had it.

As you'll know Danny, once you've had subaru you always want another. I miss all that traction, and that flat six wail at 7+ grand.

Was trying to get the wife a turbo forester but she's not so keen.
Diesel FRV time for practicality.
I have told her she'll be missing out on big doughnuts in the car park at Tesco and the kids would love it, but she's not even bothered about that. Weird.

Had a Lhasa green mk1 GTi back when I was 18.
Now that's a great little car. All my friends thought I was mad because I bought a lightly modded one and turned it back into a standard car.
So progressive and easy to drive when at the limit on the OE 13's. Another favourite.

The list actually goes like this:

Mini 1000 (1275) Still own this.
Mk2 fiesta Ghia (£50 hack - mint with 35k on it - I had to fix the gearbox, at no cost)
Mk1 Golf GTi (rear ended in traffic and written off)
Mk3 1600 Orion Ghia (£65 hack, but was mint and original)

Had a 4 year car break where I only rode motorcycles.

Nissan S14 Sylvia (another minter, I destroyed this one on the motorway in the rain 🙁 )
Mk5 accord 1.8ls (free - did 3 years in it - great car)
4th Gen Subaru Legacy Spec B (5 years - great Q car)
7th Gen Accord Touring CDTI (bought as a cheap hack 18 months ago but it's growing on me)
BMW E30 Touring (To build the sleeper I want, trying to make up for selling my subaru)

Andy if the Nova SR was your first car, that's pretty cool.

It's the Vectra that I'd be embarrassed about.

Then had it resprayed.

Needed a bigger car that was a diesel to carry my camera gear around so...

 

A VW Polo estate SDI.  

 

33049830905_9982ecd891_b.jpg

 

This was a really economical and quite reliable but slow as hell with no turbo.

 

Then a mate of mine was his re-mapped Audi A4 TDI i had to buy.   Full ABT sportline kit and 19" LM reps.  With the Milltek exhaust and remap this was so nippy.

fitted some genuine BBS CHs when I found two of the LMs were cracked

Then got bored of and fitted some LMs again only 9.5J all round  :wacko:

Guess you could say I love low cars  :D

 

 

 

This how my accord currently looks....

Taken last summer when I bought her.  Only mod so far is an xlink bluetooth adapter.

 

I've got coilovers and 18" LM reps wheels (love the style of these :lol: )  waiting to be fitted but I just need to get the steering rack refurbed and replaced and maybe get some adjustable front/rear camber kits. not sure yet..

My car history in order...: 

 

VW Golf 1.6 CL (Mk2)   (inherited from my grandfather)

Nissan 200SX (S13)   (The one I'd have back in a heartbeat.  Even though it overheated, blew the turbo and was full of rust...  Loved every second of it)

holidays2004007.jpg

Ford Mondeo ST24    (2.5V6, K&N cone filter - amazing noise.... eventually sold when a new job meant half a tank of fuel was used a day)

11130002.jpg

Honda Civic DX - 1.3  (bought off my Mum for £500.  I'd spent my youth running about in this car, so I knew it very well.  Great car to learn heel/toe in..)

DSC00155.jpg

Vauxhall Corsa 12v     (let's not talk about this one. had it for a year of commuting misery)

Honda Accord 6th Gen 2.0 auto  (first Accord, brilliant brilliant brilliant car.  scrapped at 140k miles with gearbox/cooling issues)

DSC01232.jpg

Honda Accord 6th Gen 2.0 manual  (bought to replace ^, never really gelled with it... sold it fairly quickly)

car.jpg

Mazda Eunos   (Brilliant car.  spent a lot to get it to a decent standard, should never really have sold it, but needed cash to buy the next Accord....)

newcar.jpg

Honda Accord 7th Gen 2.0 Tourer  (Originally found this car for my sister to buy in 2011... she was looking to move it on, so I had to buy it.  Had it 3 years now and still love it... )

IMG_5105.jpg

 

Currently repainting a set of Pentas, so hoping to have it looking a bit sharper in the next month or two!

Remedi - Love that Delsol.

Mattster- The civic, nothing quite like the joy of driving a slow car fast.
Spent a while driving slow small diesel vans, and there's something great about keeping up the momentum to maintain pace. Great training for driving a big diesel accord.

I completely agree, same principle applies to bikes as well!  Something slightly perverse about thrashing an engine to the redline but still only just doing 70...

 

That civic is incidentally also the only car I've been stopped for speeding in.... :blink:    It would also break into liftoff oversteer at the smallest sign of rain.   It's a pity you can't get a decent EG anymore...

 

I'll hopefully have your wheels all tarted up soon.  got them shotblasted last week, just need to fill/sand/prime/sand/paint/lacquer now!  Will get some pics up once done.   B)

Awesome. Should look great on them.
I really like them as a wheel, just got the 19's almost new with fresh Toyos so cheap I couldn't refuse.
One man's need for quick cash is another's gain I suppose.

The wife has an EP shaped civic 1600 and it's a brilliant thing to drive.
Loves to be thrashed and is pretty slow, but handles wonderfully at the limit with predictable lift off oversteer too.
Great fun. Will be sad to see it go soon after the 9 years of good service it's given us.

Had a 1997 EK3 Civic 1.5 3dr in Silver, was my first car with low miles and bought from an elderly couple, had it for a few months before it got written off by a Corsa.

 

Then bought a 2001 Green Civic 1.4 3dr to replace it, this was a car I modified alot and spent lots of money on too, broke that for parts after 8 years ownership.

 

I had a few daily drivers in between consisting of a 2000 Honda Logo in red, great little car, but was suffering from the Pink syndrome and sold it on due to needing a bit more power.

 

Replaced the Logo with a 2002 Accord Sport which I liked alot, bought for £750 and had it a few months before selling it to a neighbour down the road, due to funding for a new car.

 

Then comes my current car which is my Accord Type-R, love it alot.

 

Had a daily in the form of a 2002 EM2 Civic coupe, good on fuel but poor elsewhere so I sold that.

 

Then switched to another brand for a bit, a Saab 9-3 Turbo, Good car but sold it due to a few issues it had.

 

Then had a 1997 Accord coupe for £450, rare car and a comfortable one too, sold to a fellow Honda enthuasist after a few months due to needing an Eco daily as I do alot of miles.

 

And here comes my current daily, 2004 Audi A4 1.9 TDI Sport, lovely car to drive and eco on fuel. Looks great and comfortable.

 

So ATR and the Audi are my two cars :)

I'll play:
Pug 205 1.9d (C reg..nicknamed the flying phlegm as it was rancid yellow with red spots thanks to hammerite rust eater..died driving to Newcastle airport before a lads holiday in Corfu..gutted)

Vauxhall nova GTE (in white…great car…made out of biscuits tins and extra weight reduction thanks to fag burns in the seats meant it was a flyer…sold it for some daft reason to buy..)

Subaru Impreza 2.0 sport (not bad but as it was the non turbo version it lacked grunt..some ****** keyed it outside the pub so traded it for…)

Toyota MR2 2nd gen (brilliant car…a proper hoot all round..sold it to buy..)

Subaru Imperza Turbo 2000 (did it properly this time…Loved this car..had it for 10 years and nothing went wrong…still miss it…kids came along and foolishly bought a ..)

Honda CRV (good sensible cruiser…plenty of room for kids stuff…cubbie holes for my flat cap and slippers…while the wife was having fun in..)

Mini Cooper S (2004) (not bad..the first supercharged version..made a nice whiney noise nearly as loud as the wife..but kept breaking down..)

Honda Jazz (I know I know…actually a decent wee runabout that no one would ever steal, fitted lots of bikes in the back and ran on fumes..chopped to buy..)

Toyota Granvia camper van (22 year old bus with 3.0D landcruiser engine, double bed and fridge..whats not to like…still got it and my weekend toy for all sorts of shenanigans)

Honda Civic 1.8 (wifes 2012 car…good nippy scoot..cheap to run and mustn’t grumble about…just needs a turbo)

Honda Accord 2006 2.4 Executive( my new plaything for the daily motorway commute….2 months in I’m liking the comfort, handling, decent pull and toys…I think we’re gonna get along fine…if I can sort the rear brakes as per common theme on the site !)
