Well i started off at 18 with a Series 2 RS turbo for my first car and then moved onto a S1 RS turbo at 19 at which point i also owned a 309 GTI. From there i bought my first Pulsar at 21 and then bought a s13 200sx to run around in. Bought my second Pulsar last year when my first was vandalised and then spent 6 months putting her together. Once she was finished i sold her to buy my current GTR which i'll be recieving next week :)
Here's some pics though i didnt manage to get pics of all of them in the time i had them :bawling:
Would love another series 1 though!

Did you, or did you not, send that poor fecker to an early grave? Well, it's engine at least.. .:D
VAG 1.8t engines are apparently a bit of a lottery! Having been warmed up and cooled down very carefully (yes really!) it went through 3 engines in 20k miles. The car was just jinxed in general - probably not helped by the utterly shocking dealership I took it to. They did some real gems. Took it for a service once, 2 days later I'm driving down the M6 at 100 and something and go to brake, the last bit of pad breaks off and it's metal on metal discs to pads. Apparently they didn't spot the pads were 'running low' whilst it was in with them 2 days prior. Took it to the same dealer with a 'heavy clutch' problem, they disassembled the clutch, 'diagnosed the fault', gave the car back and ordered the bits in to repair it. Only they didn't reassemble the clutch quite right... half way up the M1 heading home from London it fell apart on me.

In fact, let's stop there... :rolleyes:

I started out with a metallic blue, limited edition Pug205 GTI. Man, I thought it was the fastest thing on 4 wheels when I got it! :D

After this, it was onto the RS scene. Owned a 215BHP S2 RST, then a 2wd Sapphire Cosworth before moving onto an Escort RS Cosworth which I owned for over 4 years. Finally made the move last Summer to the GTR scene :)

Only have pics of my old Escort on PC unfortunately.....
