    Your Car History

    Just me being very curious again... wanting to know what cars people have owned in the past and what their car history is.

    for myself, i passed test in October 2006 (age 17). owned a ford fiesta up to january 2008, when i purchased my renault megane. finally saw sense with the megane, was costing me too much to run in terms of insurance so ended up with the astra on 1st november 2008. pics below:

    the fiesta, 1.3i lx 1995 m reg (june 2006 - january 2008 )



    the megane, 1.6i 16v 2002 52 plate (january 2008 - november 2008 )



    the astra, 1.4 16v sxi 2005 55 plate (november 2008 - present)



    please, share your history and add photos!
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    Where do i start lol, i passed february the 1st 2007 and my 1st car was a 1,2 8v corsa ls, i loved this car until i unfortunately crashed it after only owning it 10 weeks.





    With funds short as i did not claim of the insurance i managed to scrape £500 together and bought my next car in april 2007, was just a temporary car whilst i saved up again. Bodywork was immaculate and my saxo 1.1 sx was a bargain.




    I kept this saxo 4 about 6 weeks as it was not the car for me, i then bought my second corsa, it was a 1.2 16v sxi i had this for a further 10 weeks until i decided i wanted something bigger. It wasnt a bad price at £650




    In august i bought my 1st astra, it was quite a basic spec but a bargain at just less than £1000, it was a 1.6 8v club in red, unfortunately i only had this 4 days and a women in a micra decided to smash into the back of me on the a179 going in to hartlepool (for those who know where it is).



    I then had a bit more bad luck, i was without a car for a week or so and then when i eventually the car carrier thing pulled up with a citroen xsara picasso and a brand new 1.8 zafira, i was hoping to god it would be the zafira i would have and luckily it was, i then spent the next 3 weeks or so driving this and i must say it was amazing, i loved everything about it and felt like daddycool and 18 lol.

    Once the insurance came through i decided i wanted another astra but a diesel this time so i went 4 a 1.7td astra which i had 4 a further 7 months. I loved this car although it did have its starting problems which i couldnt figure out.



    mY final car which i have to date is my 1.6 16v astra sport, i bought this is april 2008 and have had it ever since, i will keep this car until next year when i will either get a 3 series bmw or an astra convertible. It has changed since the pics where taken, has eyebrows different back lights and sportex exhaust





    And thats me up to date

    iv started with

    1993 1.2 corsa spent every pennny i ever made on it when was 17 only for my mate to crash into me and make mess of and never went through insurance and could never get bonnet to sit properly so sold it for pennies.

    2001 saxo vtr yellow with black and yellow leather seats was a great car but wanted more powera and sold it for more than a bought if for


    2003 astra gsi loved the car to bits then wife fell pregnant struggled on with it for first couple of months but wife moaned so sold it.


    2004 plate mondeo tdci was the worst idea of my life why i sold astar i never know only had it 5 months and took a bit hit on it with trade in


    bought a 03 plate crv for wife and kids to use


    now have a 03 plate 2.2 vx 220 but its for sale as i never use it. its more like an ornamnet that a car altho its great fun to drive just dont have teh time as i have 2 kids now .


    i dont have pics as there on old comp if i ever get round to it i will post some up.

    Is there ever been a topic that's covered more???? There's a few threads like this in the Astra Chat forum.
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
