I have not included work vans (at least 6), or the exes (about 6), think that's all of them!
As you can see, I've been keeping the local scrapyards busy - up till the last 3, anyway.
Yes, by chance i got my first diesel, a bluebird in about 2001 - i was clueless about fuel economy till that eye opener as to how much further i could get for a fiver! Didnt start out working exact brim to brim mpg till the astra. Remembered my transit was '93, L reg, not '97. Forgot my 3 50cc honda melodys ('82,'83 & '85), 50cc yamaha v50 and honda express, both '84 and an '86 honda 90! Had a few more late '80s mopeds, one was a honda vision, forgot the others...
Delivered a lot of pizzas in my bluebirds, really nice car to drive, and got a lot of car for £150! Around 2001 i used to get about 120 miles for a tenner. I ll read back through this thread when i m on my laptop, its a bit fidly on the mobile!
