Adrian's - Cars that I have owned  #4
If you want to contact me about anything on this site please email me -
I created this site in 2004 with Yahoo Sitebuilder (Now sold on to Aabaco), I still use Sitebuilder but for the last 10 years there has been a bug in my site .  If I make a change to the
Toolbar Sitebuilder will randomly delete text from site pages.  I split my site into sub domains and I have more or less eradicated the bug which I now know is caused by the Advanced
Navigation Bar Editor.  If a text box contains gibberish it is not my fault.  I would not recommend Sitebuilder, unfortunately I am stuck with it.
2002   Hilary's first  
Mitsubishi Pinin 1.8
petrol. Hilary used this for
work for 4 years and it ran
2002   I changed jobs and opted out
of having a company car.  I bought
this 3 year old Mercedes C200 Petrol
Auto  with 51k on the clock.  What a
nice car, so well built and totally
reliable.  I added 100,000 trouble
free miles then my Dad took it over
2001   Honda Accord 2.0l VTi
Executive, cruise, full leather etc. I
changed jobs and this was the
company car I inherited.  Full spec
but it never handled well and the
engine had no mid range.  I always
felt the Accord was totally overrated.  
Couldn't hold a candle to a 100,000
mile Merc.
2000 Vauxhall Vectra 2.0 Auto.  This
was a high spec car, my first
automatic and my first car with ABS.  
Drove well and had tall gearing for
quiet cruising.  When Gordon Brown
started screwing tax out of motorists
this Vectra became so tax inefficient.  
I never understood why Labour
wanted to put UK car workers out of
their jobs.
2000 Hilary's NX100 1.6 Auto.  My
wife needed an automatic car, the
NX was ideal. It had removable  
T-Bar roof and ran like only a Nissan
can.  We fitted some nice wheels
and the car looked so much better.
1998  Hilary's owned this Nissan
Sunny 1.6. It had no power steering
as a result it was very physical to
drive, even harder to park.  A
forgettable car.
1996  Citroen Xantia 1.8.  I changed jobs, I had
always wanted a Citroen and the Xantia came with
Air con and remote locking which were rare in
1996.  I drove 127,000 trouble free miles in 3
years.  I had to get the front seat replaced and the
headlights were dreadful.  Otherwise a great car.
