Yeah it was the supercomp , with rudimentary lights that glowed with a gentle hue and mountain bike speedo that gave intermittent guesses to your speed and went totally blank above 40mph and vibes so bad it blurred vision and made you sneeze ...but ...all was forgiven on a damp cold winters morning round the corners and roundabouts of west london ..while the sportsbikes wobbled and tentativly made there way around, the KTM was full throttle exiting all crossed up sideways with a grinning idiot aboard .

2002 Citroen Saxo 1.1 (*****, but easy to chuck about. Engine needed replaced at 45k )
2002 Ford Mondeo tdci ghia estate auto (Too many issues to list, ended up scrapping due to injector problems - engine would randomly cut out above 60)
2008 Honda Accord Tourer cdti exec (2 years and coming up to 40k and all that's gone wrong is a seized rear caliper and blown boot struts. Best car yet. Two MOTs with no advisories is a record for me!)

My chequered past:

VW Polo - A wonderful 1984 model complete with vinyl roof.  My first car when I was 17, would've been Feb '96 I think.

Sierra - mates dad died, I gave him a few quid for it  :)

Honda Concerto - Uni car, 1.6 with twin carbs, not sure what previous owner had done but it was pretty quick.  Had something like 180k when it started showing signs of abuse  :D

Rover 620 SLi - Coz I couldn't afford an Accord  :wacko:

Range of new Mercs as company cars.  Didn't like any of them, but I worked for Merc so no choice  :(

318is - Had loads of fun in this one, regret swapping it for...

...Mitsubishi Shogun 3.5 V6 - Coz I fancied one, didn't keep it long

Vans - Used works vans for a while

Alfa 156 - Got nicked by Leroy, a drug dealer in Liverpool (no joke), was recovered during a police raid.  Was never the same and Alfa dealers are the worst ever.

Renault Laguna - Seriously, did 80k in three years without a blip, I bought it nearly new for 10k (20k list), ran it for work and picked up £500 a month for opting out of the company car scheme  B)

Honda Accord tourer - v1

Honda Accord tourer - v2

 

The Mrs came with a Corsa, it was dreadful

Then got her a new i10, was a great little car, now has a new A3.

I own quite a few vans through my company so I use them.  

 

Seriously thinking of getting a Legend to add to the garage.

There are a lot of cars to buy but Honda Accord Tourer interior is very comfortable and available in reasonable prices too. Its seats are made with leather.

The interior of the Honda N WGN car is nice and spacious and also has decent and comfortable shape

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

I'll second that [emoji119][emoji119][emoji119]

I've had a great trip down memory lane reading this thread  :)

 

I came across a virgin Website that caters for modern/future classic cars :  https://www.futurecl...ex.php?/forums/

 

Well worth an investigation.

Had this a year now. Original plan was to sell the Accord, but the Accord has been so reliable and uses about half the fuel, so I couldn't get rid!

 

More comfortable than the Accord mind you :)
