Bucket Of Electircal Faults - Lots Of Unpredictable Fun! — My first car, so I was attached to the thing, build like a tin can, sounding like it was faster than it was. less than 1litre had trouble with 5 people uphill!

Pros: Tardis - surprisingly roomy

Cons: Electrical problems, broke in myself when locked out - so not that secure!

My Little Getabout In England — I bought this car for $570/£250 when I first got to England and it was a handy little getabout.

Pros: Small and economical

Cons: It died on me in Cornwall. The head went.

I Got Lucky, Being That Old And Still Only Having 38,000 Genuine Miles On The Clock. — Brilliant little car, being a 1.1 engine, petrol lasts ages... It's small and light so accelerates fast even though the engine is small. Comfortwise, the seats are really comfortable, but could do with better headrests. Plenty of space in the back, for legroom/bollockspace, whatever.

Pros: legroom in back, cool handles on 3door, Ali-G had one (if that's a pro to you lol)

Cons: headrests are poo, could be annoying if you prefer 5door cars, though folding the seats forward and back again isn't any hassle, some cars have stupid hidden handles or whatever to do it.

to be honest, there are no cons. except for the fact that i just changed my back brakes and bled them, but the handbrake cable still needs tightening since then. but that's not the car's fault.
