I dug out some photo's of cars I used to own. I had fond memories of most of them.
1984 Ferrari Mondial. My first Ferrari. 12,000 miles on it when I bought it.
1992 Red Lancia integrale Evo 1. The best handling car I ever owned. It was something else.
Loved the Evo's so much I had 2 of them. 1993 Evo 1.
1989 Lancia integrale 8v. Peter who bought it off me hill climbs it now.
1999 Fiat Coupe Limited edition. Only sold it to buy the Red Evo !
1995 Fiat Coupe 16V. Great little car.
Fiat Tipo Sedicivalvole. A car I really regret selling now. It was so underated. It's off to Dulbin area soon.
1976 Alfa GTJ. I spent 5 years restoring this car from the ground up only to sell it to a friend the day it passed it's Mot !
1989 Panda 4x4. 198? Panda CL
And Sylvia "the worlds most travelled Fiat Panda". I sort of have a stake in her upkeep. Read all about her travels at http://www.panda2america.com/
Alfa 155 2lt TS wide body, and 1976 Alfa GTV 2000 thought to be the first one brought into N.I.
1998 Silver 156 2l TS and 2000 156 2l TS. We also had a met red 98 but I can't find the photo of it.
1998 Fiat Marea 19JTD Very quick for a diesel. 1993 Fiat Tempra SW. I liked it.
2000 Fiat Brava 100SX. Very clean little car. 1998 Fiat Brava which was a terrible car.
2 1995 Fiat Cinquecento Sportings. I've had 3 of those. Absolutely cracking little cars.
Alfa 75 3.0 V6 and 86 Fiat Uno turbo. Uno blew the turbo 3 weeks after buying it.
1999 black Siecento Sporting and red Siecento Sporting. We bought them both together. WAZ 5924 and WAZ 5925. The red one was a horrible little car and neither a patch on the Cinq's.
1989 Fiat X19 Lido or grand Finale (I can't remember). It was very rusty when I bought it and I had to fully restore the body.
1990 Ducati 900ss. I'm not great on bikes but at least I didn't fall off this one.
1990 Uno 1.0. It was very clean. 1976 126. It only had 30k on it and the plan was to restore it but it was so rusty everywere I just couldn't save it. It's in car heaven now.
Stinkweed this one was called. It had weeds growing inside and stank of damp and that's how he got his name. I bought him for £25 and he drove home. I did fully restore him but the only pic I have of him almost finished is the blue one. As soon as I got him through the mot someone offered me money for him.
Alfa 33 Green Cloverleaf. This one was the silliest job I ever decided to do. All I wanted to do was see if I could get it back on th road. It had been lying on it's side for years with water all inside it.
This corner was so bad I had to cut the entire bit out and weld in another whole corner.
I wasn't joking when I said the whole corner! That's on the trailer going to be painted.
Primed and ready for paint. Unfortunately I don't have a pic of it finished in it's Dekra yellow with black wheels but it did get through the Mot first go and then was sold the week after. The guy who bought it wrote it off 2 days later. 8 months work driven over a hedge
1986 Alpine GTA V6. I know this ones not Italian but boy it was some motor. An excellent car and very underated. That's my friends Morgan +8 beside it.
1995 Subaru Impresa WRX. 280 BHP. Not all they're cracked up to be. Kept it 3 months and went back to the "Grale". Wasn't impressed. On the other hand this 1989 Merc 230CE was a fantastinc old bus. I wish I'd kept it now for those lazy days out.
