College Car — great gas mileage - I drove this thing into the ground commuting to college, but it was definately up to the challenge.

Cons: not very attractive

After The Crash, We Needed A Car To Get Us From A To B — 3rd car for the sum of £350 from some back street allotment up Craghead. We needed a car to get us from A to B and unfortunately this was aqquired. In the end I drove it to a scrapyard in Sacriston and left it there in car heaven.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: It had a hole in the floor which was neatly covered by the floor carpet but it was more reliable than the last escort I had.  Dodgy M O T pass (I think)

Canine Undercarriage — bought an 18-month old car from friend as my 18th birthday present to myself. After the Allegro everything was going to be good, but this was incredible. Right in the middle of the mid-80s 'hot hatch' era and was bettered only by the RS2000 and Ford Capri Turbo. Fast (for its time), 0-60 in about 8 seconds and I got it up to 130mph indicated. Good brakes and tweaked suspension could handle it. No ABS or TC in those days though!

Pros: Jazzed up every day car

Cons: expensive to insurer, shredded front tyres and fair but of understeer

Pros: Nice colour.
