I like to keep my cars as long as possible.‎
‎1. Secondhand Mini 1966 as a student
‎2. New Mini 1967 – I wanted a Cooper but settled for the standard model ‎
‎3. Rover 2000 SC – new in 1973 (I couldn’t stump up the extra £200 that would have got me ‎the nice red Rover P6 V8 that was in the showroom). This was delivered with about 30 ‎faults and leaking 8 different fluids. Failed its last MOT in 1995 at 264,390 miles because of ‎rust worm.‎
‎4. Jaguar XJ6 3.2L – secondhand in 1996 – the head had been skimmed which had raised to ‎compression ratio resulting in annoying pinking when charging over the snake pass.‎
‎5. Ford Focus 1.6L – new in 2000 – still running and passed on to a nephew
‎6. Jaguar XE 20T – new in 2016 – interesting that it was manufactured in Solihull in the same ‎factory that made my Rover 2000. The only delivery faults were incorrect tire pressures and ‎so far nothing has needed repair or replacement apart from oil and filter. Tires, disks and ‎pads are still OK after 43,000 Km.‎
XE 2.0 Prestige 20T Auto (MY 2017) , Rhodium Silver with Oyster interior, Gloss figured ebony veneer, Split rear Seat, Park Assist and surround camera pack, Power fold and dimming mirrors, Space saver spare wheel.

1972 Scania Metropolitan (Ex London Transport MS2 - a single decker bus!) My 1st vehicular purchase when I was just 14 in 1984. Don't ask.
1967 Rover 2000 TC - My first car bought in 1986, a few months before I took my test
1985 Ford Escort 1.6D Estate
1985 Ford Sierra 2.0 Ghia
1986 Ford Orion 1.6D Bought off my sister

1972 MGB GT British Racing Green (A 2nd car/classic purchase)
1990 Mercedes Benz 300CE (a left hooker bought for taking to Spain, but never did) All black with privacy glass. I looked like a drug dealer in it!

2013 Audi A8 3.0D SE Executive. Fastest, smoothest car I've ever owned, and probably the nicest, though costly when things go wrong.
