Your previous cars...

Post by Rob » Mon Jan 06, 2020 11:54 am

Hi all...i've seen this done on other forums and thought it might be fun to have a thread going on here where us forum members can either list or show off some of the the cars they've owned before they found their way here...

Mine is varied but includes;

Vauxhall Cavalier - engine died
Rover 400 - everything died
Ford Focus - nice car, sold at 90k miles
Ford Cougar - US coupe, not the Kuga SUV
BMW 320si
BMW 320d
