I'm not really bothered about cars SteveH but your post did make me think about the various cars I have had. A trip down memory lane for me this afternoon and I think it has been nine different ones since my first Mini in 1976.

Like Nem, my list is quite long stsrting with a 1932 Austin Seven (just the ordinary one), then a Standard Flying Twenty, previously mentioned on the Forum, followed by an assortment of marques and Makes.  If you want a list I'll have to dig deep into the old grey matter!

Hi Merddin, We have been driving for the same time, but , I have only driven a quarter of what you have.
I'll have to go over it again, try and catch you up.

Hi Mike,  Mine was a split screen also , lacquer black red coach line, 17. bought from garage I worked in weekends,
I had a friend who worked in a chromium plating shop, near the garage who also worked weekends, if he had space and we could get it off the car, it was plated, it was very cool, for a young mans first car, maybe the first to be "PIMPED"... 8)
