    1: 1972 VW Beetle 1200 in orange - That got t-boned, and written off :(

    2: 1.1 1995 ford fiesta in faded blue, which I bought from the scrappy for 300 till I got the insurance cash through.

    3: 1966 VW Beetle 1300 - white and rust, I locked up on black Ice and slid into the back of a new mini, started rest, and lost enthusiasm and money, recently sold it.

    4: Pug 306 Dturbo in red - Cracking car until the turbo blew up and then it was slow as sh*t.

    5: 1988 Mk2 Golf GTI 5 door in white - had weitec coilovers on, didn't adjust the proportioning valve and the rear locked up entering a roundabout, hit the curb, took off and hit a lamp post while 3 foot in the air and spun 180 mid flight, just stripped that and weighed the shell in on saturday.

    6: 1989 Mk2 GTI in black, building a nice motor for it with standalone and xflow conversion, soon to be getting coilovers. (will adjust the proportioning valve this time) :lol:
