    Default Previous Cars

    Just a thread to see what your previous cars were as I'm interested to know what cars Vec C drivers have drove in the past, see whos a vauxhall diehard and who's bought a vec cos they preferred it to a M**deo or a 407, etc.

    mine:
    1. 1996 'P' Chrysler Neon 2.0 LE (shared with my dad, got written off, rare car with a manual box and electric sunroof, and had features that only became standard on more popular cars like the Vec C around 2003)
    2. 1997 'R' Vauxhall Astra 1.6 LS 5 Door, metallic green, still got, was my dads and now mine, now has 17" new tigra wheels, gsi kit, sport interior, chrome bits n bobs, smoothing,
    3. 2005 '54' Vauxhall Vectra 2.0 DTI Energy 5 Door, star silver, my dads taxi but my car for work too, and sorta generally shared as I can use it whenever I want, and pay a bit of maintenance to it.
