One of my favourite cars owned was a sunbeam lotus and I can't believe how many are left with their penchant for being crashed, it was virtually undriveable in the wet.

I also thoroughly enjoyed my first Volvo, a 340DL auto (the old DAF 33 I think it was), built like a tank with the variomatic transmission inherited from DAF - I loved it, there's not many left now though :s_sad on the Volvo theme I had an ex-police 850 T5R auto which was superb but not many of them left either.


The maestro and montego are still made in China
Apparently. But its horrible the back end is a maestro and the front a montego. I thought it was a wind up but its true
One ugly duckling!!

NOOOOooooooooooooooo, I didn't think it was possible to make something uglier than the Maestro but they've managed it :s_laughat

That's good for a car that would be 40 years old now.

Well this thread has turned into.. Well shall we say a lot of Er.... Well old boys reminiscing... :s_biggrin :s_biggrin Brilliant !

When I was in my early twenties we sat and tried to count how many cars I had had at the time.. We gave up at 65.. I was incorrigible.. Soon as I got a car I wanted something else.. My Rav is the longest ever car Ive owned. Some were measured in weeks..
For when the one great scorer comes to mark against your name... He marks not that you won or lost.. But how you played the game..

I believe there were only 2500 originally registered in the UK,and of those I think there are around 1700 left now.
Mine went for £6700 and has since been sold on again for £7k,so they are at least holding their value.
Will definately be a collectors item for the future,but probably not in my lifetime, more of a weekend car so was just not practical for me anymore.
Maybe if I'd had somewhere to store it I would/should have kept it :s_dunno


My nieces husband had the R32 Golf, brilliant car :s_thumbsup

I like the Golf in this link, number 8 -
