    Going back 19 years now. She was a 1984 Vauxhall chevette 3 door hatchback RWD 4 speed 1300cc in green. Had it for 2 years til I wrapped the back end round a tree when I got it a bit sideways on a wet country road. Hooked on going sideways ever since. Haha.

    1993 Vauxhall Nova Life :) 1.0 8v of chavvy goodness! Little thing was a beast. I had my house hi Fi speakers in it as the stock ones were missing. The drove it though a flood had to push it out emptied the dizzy cap dried it and she started again! It was indestructible!

    This was my first one, a pile of sh!t. ZAZ 968M, I don't want to talk about it.

    [​IMG]

    Second one was a Lada 2101

    Third one was a Vauxhall Chevette hatchback. My first engine swap, 2.9 ford V6. I got it driving, but I was too young to deal with the rust. I still miss it :cry:

    Then I got my first Saab, a 9000i, 2.0. White, with wine red interior, very royal.

    Another Saab 9000, 2.0 Turbo. My first contact with a turbo. HX40 Super #16, custom exhaust manifold, JT 3 inch turboback, 850cc injectors, walbro fuel pump, 600x300 intercooler, FPR, HKS wastegate, no bypass or blow off valve, 2 bar boost pressure. This was also my first programmable ecu install, Trionic 5.5. So I was an idiot and started to build it rear wheel drive. Rear axle was from a beemer, install was a success, engine was from a Audi V8, 4.2. This project went so big, so one day I said enough and cut everything to pieces and took it to scrapmetal.

    At the same time I had Saab 9-5 Aero Estate

    Then I bought a golden/yellow Alfa Romeo 145 TS, now that was a hot hatch :D

    [​IMG]

    Then sold it and bought a Mitsubishi Pajero soft top, short wheel base. Lifted it, installed 33inch tires, it already had a winch. Had good times with it.

    [​IMG]

    Then sold it and bought my alfa back :D, like I said, it was a god damn good car. Like a gokart.

    So the Alfa was not in the same condition as before I sold it, and too much rust in the front end, ended up in scrapmetal.

    And now we have another Saab 9000 and a peugeot partner van/box. I have never seen a better car than the peugeot. It was bought brand new by my uncle in 2005. It still has original handbrake cables and they work flawlessly, oem exhaust, zero rust, . The only things I have changed are rear axle bearings, front swaybar links and wishbone rear bushings.

    And the Nissan ofcourse

    A few years ago now but it was an original 99 Mini Cooper S,had 900 miles on the clock when I got it. Looking back,it was a waste really to give a careless teen such a nice little car as it didn't have an easy life at my hands (the gearbox didn't last to long) Great memories all the same,wouldn't have it any other way.

    My first car was a 1990 Mk2 Golf 1.6 Driver.

    Had it around 3 years and in that time it ended up with a few bits done to it and an engine swap, should of gone down a different route engine wise but you live and learn!

    1.8 PB 8v GTI engine
    Webber 32/34 Carb
    Full Scorpion Exhaust System & GTI Manifold
    TSR Ported & Polished Head
    TSR Cam
    KW V3 Coilovers
    Stripped out

    Miss the car but sold it for my first MX5 and haven't gone back to FWD since, would love another one to tinker with but like all old cars finding a well priced one that isn't a rust bucket is proving more difficult.
