I have just brought another car to add to my collection and I was wondering who else cant resist a bargain when it comes to cars... :rolleyes:

Here is my collection.

My latest purchase, a Toyota Supra 3.0ltr Turbo. I have always wanted a Jap supercar (A Skyline GTR is what I wanted) and this was too good an offer to miss.



I just gave it a quick polish with Autoglym and although it really needs a mopping it still came out really well.


The bodywork is sound and then engine runs perfectly, she is a real flyer.

I also got my new company car I have been waiting 4 months for. A :beer: for anyone who can guess what it is... ;)



Then there is my BMW 320SE and Astra convertible.



So I have a car for whatever my mood (Or the weather) might be. :cool:

Car in question is a Skoda Superb Estate...'Superb' being one of the daftest names for a car. But a nice car, none the less.

Like the new Supra. Very tidy.

Wrong.... Try again Simon. ;)

The Supra is very tidy and I can have 6 months of fun with it and then sell it for more than it has cost me, including insurance, tax and everything. :cool:

Octavia ?
Correct.. its one of the first estate versions of the new Octavia in the country. 2.0Ltr DOHC Turbo Diesel. 140BHP 330 Lb Torque its a flyer.

Its also the Elegance version with 6 speed gearbox, Dual climate control, cruise control and everything else electric.

These cars are the best kept secret on the roads all because most people are badge snobs.... :D

BOUGHT!

Anyway, how do you insure all that lot?
Thanks Tom.... :D

Its and advantage being 37 years old. ;) The Supra is on a Classic car policy with 3000 miles a year and cost me £280.00 for the year. Thats without any no claims bonus because they are used on the other cars.

Sometimes I like being an old git.... :cool:
