Smile How many cars have you owned?

I was trying to count up the number of cars I've owned, or had as Company cars, but it's hard to remember them all! I even had a Rover when living in Spain with a twin sun roof, but for the life of me can't remember the model!

Here is my list, in rough chronological order, starting with my first wife's little Renault 4, which I learned to drive in:

Learned on a Renault 4 aged 25
Simca 1501 with sliding back windscreen age 26
Mini Countryman age 27
Renault 5 TS
Bought Peugeot 204 from mother-in-law age 28
Renault 18 TS Company car 30
Renault 9 GTS Company car 30
Colt Galant turbo Company car 32 (purchased it when left company to replace the Passat)
VW Passat Company car 33
BMW M535i 37
Renault 4 37
Ford Fiesta 39
Fiat Tipo 40
Rover 214 41
Fiat Tipo 42
Lancia Dedra 43
Fiat Marea 44
BMW M5 (year 1992) 47
Saab 900 48
Volvo 742 49
Fiat Uno 49
Toyota Soarer twin turbo 50
Toyota Soarer twin turbo again 51
Nissan Micra 51 (new, auto, for the missus)
Maserati Bi-turbo 51
Nissan Pulsar GTi 52
Rover ? 53
Peugeot 306
Datsun 240Z
BMW 750iL
Chrysler 300M 63
Alfa 147 2 litre twin spark 64
Alfa 156 2 litre twin spark 64
Vauxhall Astra Convertible 65
Rover 75 CDTi Tourer age 65

I may have missed out a few... Which was the most fun to drive? Probably the Alfa Romeo 147, a veritable pocket rocket that was so much fun racing round the streets in Kigali! Or maybe the M5...although the Galant Turbo was the most comfortable long distance cruiser. Which were your favourites?

Can't begin to count.
I used to change my cars almost as often as my socks
Record was 15 different cars in one year and never owned more than one at a time.
Cheers

Too many to list. Owned, rescued, passed through my hands and company cars must be around 200.
In the 80ís I must have kept someone at DVLA in a full time job.
A broad list would be,
Several Austins, Morris, Rover, Jaguar, Daimler, Triumph, Range Rover, MG.
See a pattern forming?
Datsun, Mitsubishi, Renault, Alfa Romeo, Bedford, Volkswagen, Jensen, Reliant, Ford, Mazda, Volvo.
Then there are the trucks, Leyland, Daf, Scania, Volvo, Renault, MAN, Mercedes, ERF, Seddon Atkinson, Iveco, Foden and all the models they made over the years.
Itís a good job I enjoy driving.

including the wife's cars

A35 Countryman
Hillman Huskey
Austin 1100
Ford Escort
Ford Orion
2 Toyota Carina E, 1.6 and 1.8
Honda Accord 2.0 hatchback
Honda Civic 1.4
3 Rover 75
Ford Focus

By the time I got rid of the Accord I could not stand it but when I got it I was proud as I was the Escort, 1.6 Ghia but that was stolen and written off as stripped for parts.
The 1.8 Carina had the best paint colour and a sun roof, really liked the car

I think the Rover 75 saloon has given me the most pleasure as well as the most stress. As I'm not a fan of saloons or diesels I a bit surprised by how much I like my saloon
