I can describe my car history in one word: appalling!
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
I don't drive, so here is Mrs Fubar's answers:
First car: 1978 Vauxhall Viva
Favourite car: MG Maestro Turbo. Love them so much I bought two.
Worst car: probably that Viva. It was only 10 years old but it was an unreliable heap with chickenwire sills and should not have been on the road.
Current car: MG ZT 190V6 (but still got the MG Turbos, mainly for shows). Brilliant car but of course it loves it's fuel.
Main system: Mac Mini 2011 > HRT II+ DAC • Cyrus 2 & PSX • Cyrus tuner • MS 10i speakers [on loan]
Also cluttering-up the place: Thorens TD160 (no cart) • Marantz CD 63 mkII KI & PM66 KI • Technics SL-P777 • Nakamichi DR-1
First Car: 1994 Peugeot 1.9 diesel. Non-turbo, 5 door, non-metallic red, bought when 4 years old (the car, not me).
Favorite Car: 2001 BMW 320Ci, bought in 2004 with 8,000miles on the clock from new.
Worst Car: See first car.
Current Car: 2010 Audi A6 Avant S-line (170bhp)
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
I always knew you were a wrong'un!
I like her, she can stay!
Is it a ZT estate by any chance?
No signature worth mentioning...
They had the coolest speedo (provided not knowing how fast you were going was your thing)
Always wanted a Firenza Droop Snoot.

Firenza Droop-Snoot must be a PG Wodehouse character
'And so on February 22nd 1966, at Luton airport...'
Sadly not. Mrs Fubar is not really comfortable parking a car as long as the ZT to start with, let alone adding a bit extra on the back end, Main reason I don't drive is I'm partially sighted. Possibly why I'm so into music and HiFi. Levels the playing field.
Oh well, I'd love one of them with the V8 in (ZT-T?). I will get one, one of these days (I need the boot space for my golf gear, honest...).
Not sure estates are usually any longer and they can be easier to judge as you know pretty much exactly where the rear end is as it's level with the rear glass, modern cars are a pig to park though as they have such high doorlines and typically very poor rear vision due to the current styling trends.
Triffic, I knew there was something that would make that comment massively insensitive and there it is! Sorry about that...
First car: Datsun Violet 1600SSS in mustard on an N reg (purchased in 1983 for £700). It was a coupe, with twin headlamps to which I added Lucas spot and fog lamps, and inside added a 4 speaker setup plus graphic equalizer which lit up in the dark
Favorite car: see above - so many brilliant memories.
Worst car: Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0GLS in red - a magnate to thieves and easy to break into - got stolen twice.
I've had quite a few company cars - usually Vauxhall and Ford.
Current car; Ford Mondeo 1.8L - a brilliant familiy workhorse, great motorway car, will keep it until it dies!
HiFi: Rega Brio 2000, Rega Apollo CDP, Mission 780's on Atacama SE20's. BK XXLS400DF. Chord Crimson Plus & Chord Carnival Silverscreen (b/w), Tacima MC.
HC: Pansonic TX-P50C3B, Onkyo TX-NR609, Sony BDP S480, MA BX2's, MA BXFX & MA BX Centre. BK XXLS400DF. Chord Carnival Silverscreen & Classic cables.

Lol don't worry about it. I didn't even give the remotest thought to the fact that I might make you feel bad, so apologies from me too. We all have our crosses to bare one way or another.

No need, as soon as I posted it I thought "I bet there's a medical reason for it, that'll look bad...", hey ho, glad you took it with such humour anyway.
The V8 ZT-Ts are still hovering around £10k btw, so I'll have to wait a little longer for one of them I think.
Just don't go baring it in public, you'll get arrested...
