Which one would you have kept?

on Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:01 pm
Hindsights a great thing, which of your old cars do you wish you'd stored away and held onto?

The only one I'd still like to have would be a 1989 Escort, now it was only a 1.6 with a slightly dodgy auto box BUT it looked just like a grey RS Turbo Very Happy Knowing I only had a 1.6 and dodgy box I had to pretend not to be interested when the chav's in their GTI's wanted a race Very Happy

I did have access to an MR2 Turbo for a short time which I REALLY wish i'd bought off him!

A lot of my cars have been really crap though looking back

In hindsite I threw my Audi TT away like is was sheet .... but it was (in hindsite) a great car .... only benefit was it made way for the lotus ...

Financially selling the Lotus was the mistake ... worth as much now as what I sold it for years and years go !!

Selling the Lotus saved you a fortune in chiropractor appointments though!

I could kick myself for selling the Merc - should have kept it and got it through its MOT instead of selling it for the money pit Audi. Sad

I'd have saved the Saab EMS it was a gorgeous blue colour and in coupe form looked amazificatious.

However, having googled images i now find my memory is rose tinted. It doesn't look half as sleek as i remember it

So the next would be the Saab 9000CSE 2.3 full turbo that was the dogs bollocks till the gearbox went west.

The reliability award MUST go to either of the Volvo S60's ive had.

I'd have kept the Avantime if I could. Amazing car, some great times and always an adventure! Always turned heads and a pleasure to be stuck in traffic. Also a very high "waft" factor - that combination of well powered / eating up the miles feeling.....

Generally reliable, replacement engine (under warranty) and gearbox aside. Also many replacement coils - more than the local family planning clinic...
