In chronological order starting in 1990 when I bought a 13 year old TR7 as a fixer upper whilst I was just 15 myself - 3 years in the garage and ready to drive when I was 18!

1977 Triumph TR7
1982 Yamaha DT50MX
1981 Suzuki GP100
1977 Yamaha RS100
1981 Datsun Cherry
1981 Ford Escort Van
1990 Peugeot 405 GD
1994 Ford Escort LX
1987 VW Golf GTi 8v (GTi Engineering)
1980 VW Scirocco (For the gearbox for ^^^ it was salvage unfortunately)
1990 BMW 318i lux touring e30
1999 Peugeot Speedfight 100
1997 Yamaha YZF Thundercat
1997 BMW 318i SE e36
1988 Yamaha FZR 1000 Genesis
1997 Vauxhall Omega Est.
1993 Kawasaki ZZR600 E1
2002 Ford Fiesta 1.6 Ghia

1997 Kawasaki ZX-7r P2
2001 Kawasaki ZX-9r E2
2008 Ford Focus Zetec Est.
1986 VW Golf GTi 8v

I don't think I've missed anything out.

I've also had a couple of JetSki's Kawasaki 400 and Yamaha Superjet 650, 2 banger cars (Mk2 Escort and Chevet)
and long term borrowed or had shares in a mix of other vehicles including:
Series 2a Land Rover LWB Safari
Hillman Avenger
Vauxhall Viva Estate
Mk4 Transit Van

Hope you enjoy, how many of these have you had?

I guess I need to add to this now:

1993 BMW 318i lux touring e30
1993 BMW 316i lux touring e30 (for breaking)

Lupo SDI 1.7 - Sold onto fund the GTD

MK2 GTD 1.6 - First and favourite mk2. If it was solid and a generally clean shell I wouldn't have bought the below!

MK2 Jetta GL 1.8 (current daily)

MK2 1.3 - donor shell for the GTD motor. Bought taxed and tested for £220. Drove it around the block and parked it up. Still awaiting surgery

I've been driving 3 1/2 years. And it's not a massive list, I'm just not very spontaneous & I love my cars.

Y reg Mk2 Polo Breadvan (mars red/pink in places) - bought by my dad when I was a learner. Awesome little car!

D reg Mk2 Polo Breadvan (dark blue) - bought by my dad with my help

G reg Mk2 Golf poverty spec (tornado red) - My first ever owned outright car - had this for ages then sold it to my sister's boyfriend to buy my first mk3

M reg Mk3 Golf 1.4 Match (white) - flippin loved that car, sold it to my cousin who promptly parked it backwards into a field

G reg Mk2 Gold 1.8 Driver BBM (T red i think) - if I knew then what I know now, clutch was gubbed so traded it in for..

N reg MK3 Golf 1.9d (dark blue) - also (notice the lack of a 't' in there !!) - had this at the same time as the White one

Sold both Mk3's and spend a dark period in the Jap Camp.
Y reg Toyota Avensis Estate 2.0L petrol (kinda British racing green) - still my fastest ever mph in a car I owned
05 plate Avensis Hatch 1.8 petrol (grey) - ate it's own engine

Back in a Dub !!!
09 plate B6 Passat estate 2.0L tdi 140 - current daily child and/or bike wagon.

J Plate Mk2 Golf GTI BBM low spec in Royal Blue - lasted 6 weeks until someone destroyed it with a Touran

J reg Mk2 Golf GTI BBM in Oak Green - current - If you can park it and walk away without looking back, you bought the wrong car !!

Those are the cars I've 'owned' without including all of my Mum's cars I drove when young.
Toyota Starlet
Ford Fiesta
Toyota Corolla estate
Technically the first two Polo's was hers but she never saw it so I claim them :D
