Wow ,some nice cars there ! Are you going to get the latetest Noble ?:bowdown:

Thanks,I've had some fun! I was on the list for the latest Noble when it was the M14/M15 and then M600, right up to 2 days before the official launch when they informed the deposit holders that it was over twice the cost of what we were led to believe originally ! At that point many choked and withdrew, myself included. However Lee Noble who left a couple of years ago has a new venture ( Fenix Automotive) coming next year which will be " interesting"!!

Indeed. I love the R8 rovers (200/400) especially the 420GSI Turbos. Id love another, but there are less than 20 left running and they tend to get scraped due to a weak gearbox or broken for the engine, which end up in the mk3 200 or ZR.. :mad:

Here are mine:

1988 F Peugeot 309 1.3 Style (Peugeot should have been had under the trade descriptions act)
1989 G Fiat Tipo 1.4DGT (Designed by a genius; assembled by school children)
1982 X Ford Fiesta 1.1 Popular Plus (Times suddenly became hard)
1989 F Ford Escort 1.4L (Boring, but better than the Fiesta)
1990 G Vauxhall Nova 1.2 Sting (Looked like a GTE but didn't go like one)
1988 E Ford Orion 1.6GL (More porridge from Ford)
1990 G Vauxhall Astra 1.6L (Vauxhall porridge this time)
1990 G Ford Sierra 1.8LX (Best car so far...)(This and the previous 4 were company cars during a short spell in the motor trade)
1988 E Austin Maestro 1.3L (The two tone paint scheme and red stripe in the bumpers didn't stop mine being an absolute shed on wheels. What was I thinking?)
1990 G VW Polo 1.3CL (Nice engine, terrifying brakes. Forget the stopwatch to time stopping distance; you needed a calendar for this one)
1997 R Honda Accord 2.2iVTEC (Marvellous car)
2004 54 Rover 75 2.0CDTi Connoisseur (No comment needed :})

So, with the exception of the Honda, the Rover, and possibly the Tipo (it was cutting edge at the time) - nothing to get very excited about...

Passed my bike test in 1970 and car test in 1971 so here goes

1966 Honda 50
1969 Honda CD175
1971 Honda CB175
1966 Ford Corsair 2000E
1969 Triumph Vitesse Convertible
1964 Triumph TR4
1968 Jensen Interceptor At one stage had both Triumphs and the Jensen at the same time
Sold both Triumphs, kept the Jensen and bought
1972 Rover P6 3500 Still kept the Jensen and replaced the Rover with
1975 MGBT V8 (Rubber bumper version) and 1975 Allegro 1300
1982 Ford Granada Ghia ( family Circumstances dictated this)
Change in financial circumstances meant the Granada and Jensen had to go and replaced with
1980 Austin Princess kept the Princess and replaced the Allegro with
1982 Ford Fiesta 950L
1986 Ford Orion Ghia i to replace the Princess
1987 Jaguar XJS 3.6, sold the Fiesta and replaced with the Orion
1987 Ford Escort RS Turbo to replace the Orion
1989 Jaguar XJS 3.6 to replace the 1987 Jag
1973 Range Rover to add to the fleet
1979 Range Rover to replace the 1973
1991 Range Rover to replace the 1979 Range Rover and 1989 Jag
1991 VW Corrado G60 to replace the Escort Turbo
1980 Kawasaki Z750 to add to the fleet
Another change in financial circumstances meant the Range Rover,Corrado and Kawasaki all had to go and were replaced with
1983 Mercedes 200T and
1989 Rover 216GSI
1987 Vauxhall Carlton to replace the Merc, replaced with
1988 Rover 825 then changed to
1989 Rover 827
1997 Ford Mondeo Estate
1998 Citroen XM 2.0 very quickly replaced with
1996 Alfa Romeo 164 3.0 24V, great car but lots of problems so changed to
1995 Rover 827 Sterling, also replaced the Rover 216 with
1995 Ford Probe 24V
1996 Mercedes S320 to replace the Sterling
1999 Alfa Romeo GTV 3.0 24V to replace the Probe
1999 Rover 75 2.0 Connoisseur SE

Tens of thousands spent over the years on updating, now seen the light, the Alfa has been owned for 8 years and will never be sold, the Rover has also been owned for 18 months and as it is one of the early ones it will also never be sold, the car may not be worth it but i would rather spend 2-3,000 per year keeping it on the road than buying a new soulless vehicle that will lose a similar amount in depreciation each year
