The oldest car I still have a picture of is my peugeot I took to the Nordkap in 1983 as an exchange student with LKAB in Malmberget,
northen Sweden.. Home-made bullbar of gaspipe fittedwith mesh soldered in the pipe frame. Also had a windowframe style protector
for the radiator, fitted with chicken mesh for flying gravel and mosquito mesh to keep overload of insects out.. :geek:

Then when I returned I 'upgraded' to a much newer Mini Metro 1.0L.. ..in which I fitted a wooden plank as a dashboard with chrome trims
from a scrapyard jaguar saloon..

metro.jpg

I will skip most of the 60 odd other cars, simply as I don't have pics of them here...

My first ' 2nd youth sticker project ' for 30 years... .. an AMG version of a Smart, the only one in the world..

Notice : socket of DEFA electric oil preheater for winter comfort and PDC.. ..rare on a Smart.. :mrgreen:

smart.jpg

Then a more recent car, a FL2 2.2 diesel, earmarked as a sucessor to the D3, but sold as the wife wanted air suspension for long travels..

FL.jpg

Then the last shopping trolley to go : a Alfa Romeo Mito Centenario 1.4T 135hp coupe..

The replacement BMW AT 216 3-cyl 1499cc 106hp shopping trolley :no picture on my phone yet..


But I do have a blistering picture of my F-Type with me..

How about my previous Vitara automatic convertible with roof rack?!
Used to put a roof box on for travelling 😉
KC Daylighter spotlights with the yellow smiley face covers and manual locking front hubs - had great fun with it off road - and at mini roundabouts 😬

Wow.... everyone seems to have some nice/unique "second" cars as well.

We have a Nissan Qashqai 1.2 as the family work horse. Never missed a beat. I won't bother with a picture as it's the same as the other 300,000 on the roads you see flying around!! :lol:

I do have a rather nice Aston DB5 (with machine guns of course).
