    A 1956 light blue Morris mini 850, slidy windows and long gear stick,
    I even modded it with an MG 1100 head an twin su carbs also flush exhaust mani
    Oh yea it had as standard a key to turn then a push button start,
    (a popular mod today lol)

    I went on to buy the 1275 gt
    and after mods Twin 45 webbers etc
    I only got 10 mpg but did it go, i was frightened the front would leave the back behind lol, and it went through the front tyres in no time,
    Then i owned a lancia beta 2ltr coupe then an itergrali

    Sorry i do ramble on

    "P" Pug 106, 1.5 straight Diesel.
    in the year of ownership having it, it had the following:
    Complete new clutch replaced
    Head Gasket
    Drivers side door lock/latch replaced.
    Fuel was good on it, and it was fairly nippy car for what it was.

    Bought for £750, sold for £500 cash. Couldnt complain, wanted ride of it anyway.
    Disclaimer - some of the above text may actually be sarcasm (believe it or not!)

    Astra 02, SRi 1.8i - Irmscher'd up (a bit) with Zebra front bumper

    Be an optimist - at least until they start moving animals in pairs to Cape Canaveral.
