Re: Your cars from the past.

Lada is actually still on the go. I remember when Lada fell out of favour the Russians would buy up cars from here, most likely for spares. Yugo were known as Zastava and were mainly all Fiat based they did versions of the 128 and the 45 used 127 mechanicals and the 903cc engine. Funny the Yugo engine was dead in comparison to the same engine in the 127.

Re: Your cars from the past.

My list is a little shorter but here goes....

E plate Yugo 45s
G plate Rover 216
H plate Peugeot 205 diesel
T plate Peugeot 106 diesel
51 plate Citroen Berlingo Multispace
And now 56 plate Doblo

The yugo was reliable well it had nothing to go wrong on it. Scrapped it as the exhaust was shot and would cost more than it was worth. The Berlingo was crazily reliable but so flat to drive.
When clear of DPF issues the Doblo is a much nicer drive.

Re: Your cars from the past.

It's a memory test:
DAF 44 Kept 6 months, repalced only because the 66 presented itself.
DAF 66 At least 3 years of brisk automatic fun.
Morris Marina 1.8 bought at 98,000, ran until 130,000, very reliable.
Morris Marina 1.7 Auto. Sadly, previously owned by an uncaring builder, needed maintenance every 3-4 weeks. Scrapped after a year.
Fiat 131 Mirafiori 1600 ohv Auto. Absolutely brilliant from 27k to 105k. Still miss it.
Fiat Argenta 2000 Auto. Loved it, but with the turning circle of a supertanker, got fed up with it.
Fiat Panda 750 Fantasia. 34hp, overtakes need notice in writing. 45,000 miles in two years.
Fiat Panda 1.0 CLX. Luxury upgrade! Fuel injection and 5 gears. 88k in 4 yrs.
Fiat Seicento Suite. 1.1 with Aircon. Bought new, 85k in 3.5 years.
Fiat Punto mk2 1.2 16v CVT Auto. Miss that one too.
Big gap with only the driving school cars, Corsa, then Fiat 500.
Panda Alessi. Since early 2010.
(Oh, and a succession of AA Driving School Fiestas - horrid, but do the job.)

Re: Your cars from the past.

Wow, never knew some of you could own so many cars!

I'm now 40 and here it goes:

Vauxhall Nova 1.2 (old banger was given to me but it lasted a month)
Citroen AX 1.1 - 2 years
Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec (MK4?) - 5 years
Ford Mondeo MK3 2.0 TDDI - Ahem, almost 11 years owning it! It was 13 half years old when I sold it with over 225K on clock
Fiat Panda 1.2 Easy (2 years)
Fiat Tipo 1.4 95 HP (had to upgrade due to growing family)

I have to say that Panda is one of my favourite car to own and drive.

Re: Your cars from the past.

My list is considerably shorter - some of them I've kept for a while though

Panda 45S 5yrs
Fiesta MkIII 1.1 3yrs
Panda 1000ie 4yrs
Punto Mk2 80 16V 5yrs
Panda Mk2 1.2 Dynamic 9yrs
Skoda Citigo SE 3yrs
Panda Mk3 85 TA Lounge (current)

My favourites? So far - my current car and the Panda 1.2 dynamic. The Punto had a great engine but the exhaust kept breaking - if I'd kept it I would've fitted a stainless steel one.

Re: Your cars from the past.

My parents have had the following:
Renault 11 GTL ('D')
Ford Escort ('E')
Renault 19 1.7 TXE ('G')
Ford Escort LX 1.6 16v ('L')
Fiat Punto ELX 1.2 8v ('W')
Renault Clio 1.2 16v Expression ('51')

They currently have:
Vauxhall Corsa SXI 1.2 Twinport ('06')
And
Renault Clio 1.2 16v Dynamique ('09')


I'm 26, and this my car history:
20/10/2007-27/05/2010: Daewoo Matiz 800 SE Plus ('51')
27/05/2010-22/04/2014: Fiat Punto Active 1.2 8v ('04')
22/04/2014-Present: Fiat Grande Punto Eleganza 1.4 8v ('08')

I learnt to drive in the Matiz, and still miss it immensely, along with both of the mk2 Puntos. Must be said though, I absolutely love my Grande Punto, and hope to keep it as many years as I can!

Re: Your cars from the past.

Didn't bother to learn to drive until 10 years ago, just too many motorbikes in the world...

Ford Focus 1.4 (less said the better...)
Renault Twingo GT (had more tank-slappers in this in two years of ownership than i did in 25-years of riding bikes... an absolute HOOT to drive)
Fiat Panda Trekking (delivers performance that doesn't risk my failing eyesight and slowing reactions getting me into trouble)

Look forward to the 105 engine upgrade... if it ever happens.

Yes I would like to see the 105 engine in the Panda - but with these new 3 and 4 cylinder Firefly engines now being built I'm not sure how many years the TA has left.

My Dad was somewhat similar, although he had got his Volvo 940 up to 350,000 miles. Unfortunately it broke down on him one day and he decided to upgrade to a newer model. I felt a little disappointed.

Re: Your cars from the past.

2000 Fiat Seicento 1.1 bought crashed at 13. Next day bought a Seicento 0.9 and stole the front off it. At 14 bought a 2003 renault kangoo with the head gasket gone. Repaired that and sold it on. Later got another 2002 seicento, that was sold after a week. At 15 I bought a 2006 vw Caddy. Got it cheap with 400,000 km on it and in need of a clutch and flywheel. Because of the "scene tax" I made a nice profit a few days later. Then bought a 1998 Mk3 Golf estate at 16. I still have this as an ongoing project. Also have a 1996 mk3 gti donor car and a 2005 Nissan Primastar stealth camper now at the age of 17.Once the Golf is finished another Fiat is definitely on the cards
