    MK1 Golf GTi cabriolet, and I love it! Makes the drive to and from work interesting.

    It also costs a small fortune in petrol, needs constant TLC to keep it going, and has keep you fit steering and clutch as standard. I wouldn't change it thou.

    Seat Ibiza Sport 1.4i Petrol 5dr (the 'sport' bit is very important - although the only difference is that the seats are slightly more uncomfortable and the gear stick is slightly smaller).

    It gets me to Scotland and back, which is all I really want.

    1972 Lightweight 24v Landy. Currently black and green but not camo, just a numpty previous owner who couldn't decide and couldn't paint properly. Great now that is summer, extreeeeeeemley impractical but superb fun. I've even been asked if I was in the Gorillaz (a popular beat combo for those in the dark ) as they have something similar. Didn't have the heart to tell the poor Y7 that it is nothing like that but just took the compliment.

    Oh and best thing.... Tax Free baby

    Eventually when I remember I'll have an av of it but never seem to get anything decent.
