First car,
1994 Nissan Pulsar LX limited sedan, custom rims, exhaust and dropped onto it's guts, was a nice drive, but was very gutless, and couldn't fit many in the back.

SINGLE LIFE
1979 FORD TE CORTINA GHIA (spent a fortune on modifications and it still hated corners)
1969 CORTINA MK 2 (nissan FJ20,supra 5 speed, 2 years of work and never quite made it onto the road :( )
1985 XF FORD FALCON GREEN WAGON (Paid $500 with 12 months rego, and was one the most reliable cars I've ever had)
1980 BMW 323 (bbs spoiler kit and a few tweaks under the hood)
FAMILY LIFE
1992 VP COMMODORE (It got hit by a fire truck, but insurance paid out more than I paid for it)
2006 MITSUBISHI 380 (bought from ex gov auction, had it for 2 years and still made money on it!)

I have been in the wilderness 'auto wise' for some time.

- Have owned a 2000 Peugeot 206 for the last 6 years.
- Prior to that a 1993 Eunos 30X (a Great Car!).
- First up a 1980 Toyota Celica.

I have missed driving a sports orientated car. :(
