    I drive a Y reg 1.6 Ford Focus... but not to work; the parking's awful round here. I ride my bike or hike to work!

    The Focus has been great for the kind of driving I do it just kkeeps soldiering on. We have a nice new shiny Volvo V70 for motorways and shipping the massive amounts of junk the kids seem to need. It swallows 4 boys and their enormous cricket bags with ease!

    Got a Mk3 Golf 2.8 VR6 - not the most economical car in the world but it's all about smiles per gallon!!

    Love it and really looking forward to getting an R32 at some point next.

    Unhappy

    My Citroen Berlingo is off the road at the moment. It stops without warning and the garage cannot find the fault.

    The VR6 was the best MK3 golf, plenty of power but not too big, still haven't been in one yet, but the thought of that meaty V6 soundtrack is enough

    1.3 Ford Fiesta 'Encore'. It's the biggest joke of a car ever. It's a 2001 model and doesn't even have PAS. I'll be swapping it soon for something with a bit more poke!

    Honda Civic.

    Its blue, it has low miles on the clock and it starts every morning. Plus I only paid 500 for it.

    Happy days.

    Seemed to have missed this. In the past 18 months gone from:

    2.7 V6 Coupe, good times to a 1.6 Seat Leon, bad times.

    But currently driving an MX-5, good times.

    Silver BMW Z4 Convertible with black leather interior, it's just a baby with a 2.2l 170bhp straight 6 engine (sounds nice though); downside is with rear wheel drive and wide 'run-flat' tyres it's a little devil on slippery roads.

    Apart from that I have an 1980s Land Rover Air Portable (aka Lightweight) and a 3,500kg Autotrail Motorcaravan

    There are some advantages to being >50..... or so I keep telling myself
