Re: Your cars from the past.

Hi Phil. I see the Reliant Regal is not on your list. You ain't lived if you have never driven a Reliant 3 wheeler especially in the winter snows. LOL.

Re: Your cars from the past.

Hi Phil. Sure did. I lived next door to a man with a 3 wheeler who dug himself a pit so that he could get under it to do repairs.You can guess what happened when he drove over it.
It's the gospel truth.

Re: Your cars from the past.

I was taken to school in an original Fiat 500, learnt to drive on a Fiat 127 1050CL - great drive apart from the awful gear change.

My own cars:-

Renault 12TS
Citroen 2CV
Vauxhall Astra Mk 1
Citroen 2CV
Fiat Panda 1000S
Fiat Panda 1000S with fabric sunroof!
Citroen 2CV
Fiat Uno 1.4 ie
Fiat Punto 55S -
Fiat Cinquecento 900
Fiat Seicento 1.1 Sporting
Fiesta Zetec S Mk 6
Toyota Aygo
Renault Twingo 1.2 TCe GT
Toyota Aygo
Fiat 500 S 105TA
Fiat Panda 4x4 TA

As you see I've always preferred small cars with plenty of character.
I've really liked nearly all the cars I've owned - I should do as I spend enough time researching them. Notable exceptions were the Vauxhall Astra (rattles, vibrations and very unreliable), and the first model Punto. The Punto was duller than any Fiat I've had before or since - a low end model. But at introduction it had class leading interior room, and this was needed for a young family. After that we went two-cars with my wife driving the larger one - (Scenics, Qubo, Note).

Re: Your cars from the past.

Hi.
Two cars I forgot that no doubt due to them being terrible I eradicated them from my memory.
A 6 month old Yugo 45S, leaked like it had no roof, was dreadfully slow, noisy and a horrible driving position. I swerved a couple of months later to avoid an accident and the car rolled 5 times down an embankment and landed up right. I was totally unhurt not even a scratch, probably the cars saving grace. I was then bombarded with an angry farmer wanting the 50 to tow the car off his field. Well it started and I drove it out of his field to his total amazement. The 5 mile drive home with the front screen in the back and two other broken windows in winter plus the steering pulling like hell was a nightmare. The car was a write off but I kept it and sold off the engine and gearbox and other salvageable parts. I was glad to see it go but I needed an interim car. I bought a Fiat 127 for 30 It got me to work for three weeks but it was so rusty that you could see the light coming in between the floor and sills and it was none to sure footed on the road.
So I'd put both down as my worst cars ever.
