I had a Fiat Panda 800cc and at 6'2" and 16 stone, to this day I feel guilty about doing it to the poor Italian. She just couldn't cope and ended up dying.

Dark red Ford Fiesta Popular with a ferocious 947cc under the bonnet. Boy, did I think I could make that baby shift! Every other road user must have hated me. sportifs2.gif

I had a 1969 VW Bug convertible. We restored it, painted it pink for me, put a new engine in it, I drove it 8 miles after restoration, it backfired thru the carberateur, caught the engine on fire, caught the conv top on fire, dropped down caught the seats on fire and burned to the ground. The little bugger who installed the engine told us it was not his fault and piss on us, so we had it towed to his shop and left it in his front yard just a burned up hulk of metal.

My first car was an old W reg left hand drive BMW 520 (shhhh). That car was bloody great, interesting going from learning in a 1.1 metro, to buying the left hooker though 169144-ok.gif

Shame the thing rusted out so quickly when I had it standing on the in-laws drive for a couple of months. frown.gif
