1994-96   I opted to run my own car instead
of a company car.  I purchased this Volvo
740 GL 2.0 with 125k on the clock and sold
it 3 years later with 275k on the clock.  In
that time apart from tyres, filters and pads I
replaced a water pump and the rear
silencer box..  I used to race off road
motorcycles and I travelled all over the UK
at weekends towing a trailer.  This Volvo
was so solid and so well built it may still be
running today.
1993-4   I opted to run my
own car instead of a
company car.  I purchased
this Montego 1.6 SDL
Estate.    This car had a
heavy clutch and soft seats,
they offered no support at all
and  I developed terrible
back pain.  The cambelt let
go one night and the SU
carburetor used to ice up in
winter.  Not my favourite car.
1990-92   My Ford Orion
1.6LX.  My second
company car.  I really like
this car but it was so noisy
I wore earplugs on long
runs.  It was quite quick in
it's day but the ride
became very floaty at
speed.
1989   A Renault 18 1.8 petrol.  I
bought and sold this car to make
money.  It have a smooth ride on
bumpy roads and the engine had
loads of mid range pull.  The
handling was very French
1989-90   My first
company car a Ford
Escort 1.3L.  It came with
a 5 speed gearbox,
sunshine roof and central
locking, I was so proud.  
The car ran well but on
cold days the carburation
was too lean and it lost a
lot of power.
1987   A Renault 18 1.8 petrol.  I
bought and sold this car to make
money.  Same comments as the
Renault 18 above.  The ride was
smooth on bumpy roads and the
engine had loads of mid range
pull.  The handling was very French
1987   My lovely Pilgrim Bulldog Kit Car which I built in 1987
and ran for 3 years.  See the sub domain for this car.
